Eastern Conference playoff teams set as 76ers eliminate Pistons

Simmo Blog NEts Ben Simmons Is The Rookie Of The Year, And It Might Not Be As Close As You Think
| 08 April, 2018, 02:52

ESPN's BPI Playoff Odds projected the Pistons had a 0.6 percent chance of overcoming their five-game deficit to the Milwaukee Bucks (42-36) or Washington Wizards (42-36).

Stop the countdown; it's over.

Philadelphia's lead remained in double digits until the final minute of the second half.

JJ Redick scored 25 points, and the 76ers won their 12th straight game, eliminating Detroit from playoff contention with a 115-108 victory over the Pistons on Wednesday night.

Also, their first-round draft pick, which will be in the top 14 picks, will be relayed to the Los Angeles Clippers - as part of the Blake Griffin trade - unless they move up into the top three spots through the draft lottery. It's their first 12-game winning streak since the 1989-90 season, back when guys like Charles Barkley and Hersey Hawkins were running things. He missed Sunday's game against the Hornets at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C. He also was sidelined Tuesday vs. the Brooklyn Nets at Wells Fargo Center and Wednesday gainst the Pistons in Detroit.


James scored 28 points per 100 possessions in 2003-04 as a 19-year-old, adding 7.3 rebounds and 7.9 assists and ending the season with what is now a career-low 49 true shooting percentage.

The Pistons trailed, 88-71, heading to the fourth quarter and Luke Kennard (12 points) scored on a scoop and Henry Ellenson followed with a dunk to make it 88-75 at the 10:22 mark.

Richaun Holmes, Amir Johnson and Ersan Ilyasova could fill in with the rotation, but there is a steep drop-off behind the starters.

Pelicans forward E'Twaun Moore knocked down seven 3-pointers en route to 30 points in New Orleans' 123-95 rout of the Grizzlies. Johnson consistently got to the rim with strong drives, but was out of control at times which is why he finished with five turnovers. 7 matchup in the second round. The Sixers need to rely on Ben Simmons to dominate again. He hasn't improved much in the National Basketball Association, making just 34 percent of his jump shots for the 76ers, last among 221 players with at least 150 attempts in 2017-18. His fourth-quarter surge nearly kept the Pistons in it, but defense was the bugaboo yet again, as they couldn't get stops on the defensive end to solidify their made shots. He shot an insane clip from the both the field and from beyond the arc.
