Why Can't The Sixers Win The NBA Title This Year?

Miami Heat vs Philadelphia 76ers odds: tv channel schedule, preview, spread

Colin isn't impressed by the 76ers 16-game win streak to end the season because numerous teams they played were already in the tank. In addition to Simmons' $280,000 Ferrari, Fultz also shared footage of a Lambo and a $300,000 Rolls-Royce, though it's unclear which of his teammates were driving those cars.

While Joel Embiid has averaged a double-double this year, Ben Simmons has set the court alight in his rookie season and is nearly a certainty to run away with the Rookie of the Year award.

Fultz should have hit up Embiid and borrowed something to protect his face. The Sixers are going to be without Embiid to start the series. Lately, however, everybody else is stepping up-including the sensational Ben Simmons.

The Sixers will not have Embiid in Game 1, as he continues to recover from surgery on a left-eye orbital bone. "I got a triple-double.it's bad", Fultz says in the clip. "The 7'0" center had one of his best games of the season against Philadelphia on March 8th when he went off for 26 points, eight boards, and two blocks in just 29 minutes.

While no one expected the Miami Heat to repeat their second-half rampage of the 2016-17 season, a return to the playoffs after missing after last season was a more than realistic expectation.

The Sixers had to win to earn the three spot and they dominated a Bucks team that was fighting for seeding in the playoffs. "It's getting there. I've got to keep working every day". After compiling a 75-243 record over the past four seasons combined, very few onlookers could have foreseen the Sixers compiling a 52-30 record to finish the 2017-18 regular season in third place in the Eastern Conference. I hope it does. In a meaningful 132-130 victory over visiting Cleveland, Simmons had 27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists.

Rookies Lonzo Ball, Kuzma and Josh Hart all showed clear National Basketball Association ability, while youngsters Brandon Ingram and Julius Randle continued their development into above-average pros. Los Angeles' 35-47 record and 11th-place conference finish in the just-completed season are its best performances by a considerable margin during this woeful five-year stretch.

"I mean, if you said what's the most impressive thing of the night, that's mine", Sixers head coach Brett Brown said of Fultz's triple-double.
