Loss officially takes Pistons out of playoff picture

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets - 4/3/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets - 4/3/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

That kept the 76ers in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with five games remaining.

Simmons had a quiet second game against the Pistons this season, but in Philadelphia's other two games against them he has proven tough to stop.

The message calls out supposed bias and false messages in news stories spread on social media and in various unnamed news outlets. Stelter also obtained a memo from Sinclair news executive Scott Livingston directing television anchors to read the message.

Four of the five Sixers starters finished in double figures. However, only one game separates these three teams. Cleveland, which has won four straight and nine of 10, has topped 112 points in seven of its last 10, and ranks fifth in the league in scoring (110.5). In the most recent game between the sides, which the 76ers won by 36 points, he was similarly efficient.

Embiid, an all-star center, missed his fourth consecutive game after fracturing the orbital bone near his left eye and suffering a concussion last Wednesday against the New York Knicks. There is also Ben Simmons, who in a few months should be named the 2017-18 NBA Rookie of the Year in a race that isn't especially close. Besides, Philly has learned how to play like a playoff team with Simmons while Embiid is resting or sidelined. He likes to rebound the ball and get his teammates involved with his tremendous passing ability. He is also, depending on how you view Rudy Gobert, the best player on a Jazz squad that is likely going to make the postseason. If Embid is unable to play, then big man Myles Turner would be expected to play a huge role.

The police shooting of Stephon Clark , an unarmed black man, ignited protests in Sacramento, Calif., that have lasted weeks. Chief Monahan confirmed that none of the officers were wearing body cameras at the time of the incident.

Philadelphia held a 93-71 advantage at the end of the third. Veterans like Lance Stephenson and Corey Joseph have been in the playoffs numerous times in their careers. We haven't played a playoff game together.

As a purveyor of advanced analytics, it's hard for me to anoint any player as "the next great one" after less than a full National Basketball Association season, but it's hard to argue against the fact that Simmons is off to a great start and is at least on track to inherit the mantle of being a once-in-a-lifetime-type player. Shooting guard Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) is out indefinitely. All we know are the facts of the matter, and the facts indicate that the Jazz would have been about a 34-win team over the course of a full season if we extrapolate that 24-game sample out over a full year. With the playoffs right around, every game should feel like a must win for this group who is trying to accomplish things no one thought was possible. The Pacers have already proved many doubters wrong this season.
