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

The eight teams for the National Basketball Association playoffs in the Eastern Conference are set. 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.

Another long-awaited scenario is on tap for the Sixers tonight, too - a late-season game with playoff-seeding implications tied to it. Philadelphia remains in a down-to-the-wire chase for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

His sculpture is the third to be installed this National Basketball Association season after the unveiling of Bobby Jones and Maurice Cheeks, both of whom were teammates of Erving on the 1983 National Basketball Association championship team.

Philadelphia, which has won 12 straight despite losing Joel Embiid for the immediate future with a left orbital bone fracture, has scored 115 or more points in eight of its last nine games and ranks ninth in the National Basketball Association at 109.1 points per game.

The Milwaukee Bucks held on for a 106-102 win on Tuesday night, getting a confidence boost against a short-handed opponent they could face in the first round of the playoffs. Stanley Johnson finished with 19 points, Reggie Bullock had 15, and former Sixer, Pick Swap Pod Process Hall of Famer Ish Smith scored 14 points with 12 assists off the bench. They didn't score a two-point field goal in the first half, with all of their points coming from three or from the free throw line. The 76ers are average on the defensive end, ranking 13 by allowing 105.2 points a game. Kevin Love could be Cleveland's X-factor on Friday, as he's knocked down 10 of his last 16 shots from three-point range.

Now that they're healthy, the Cavaliers can cover - and pull off the win - by beating the 76ers at their own game of run-outs leading to easy baskets. The 76ers are minus Embiid as he recovers from his orbital fracture: in addition, Saric is being treated for cellulitis in his elbow after he opened up a cut last week.

Jimmy Kimmel ends the weird war Sean Hannity started against him
Hannity posted old television clips of Kimmel making sexual jokes and called the comedian "Mr Harvey Weinstein jr". Kimmel continued. "Cheating on her with a porn star after she has a baby".

Saric also sat out Sunday's game against the Charlotte Hornets with the same issue.

Brown said it was going to be a playoff-type game.

The 76ers got a big game from J.J. Redick (25 points and six assists), who hit five 3-pointers and helped quell the Pistons' fourth-quarter comeback attempt. Only two of the teams they've beaten (Minnesota, Denver) have winning records, which is neither here nor there.

Ben Simmons assumed a central role in the Sixers' strong start.

Playing with a rest advantage, Stan Van Gundy's Pistons failed to stop the 76ers from executing.
