Markelle Fultz registered his first career triple-double as the Philadelphia 76ers won their 16th straight game and locked up the third seed in the playoffs with a 130-95 rout of the Milwaukee Bucks. While he was cleared of the concussion, he is still recovering from surgery. He has scored at least 25 points in 25 games this season, including a season-high 46 points during a 115-109 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on November 15. Can they win their first title since 1983?
After winning 28 games last season, this year's Sixers team has made a tremendous turnaround that hasn't gone unnoticed.
It doesn't take rocket science to realize that Philly's postseason chances are mostly on the shoulders of their two superstars, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.
"It's not something that I deem to be, here we are, we've arrived, significant-type status", coach Brett Brown said.

And this time with Infinity War , where he is meaner, stronger and deadlier, it was exciting for him to be the voice of Thanos. Of course, Hemsworth and Pratt are just two of the Marvel superstars packed into the cast of the superhero spectacular.
Embiid was on the floor prior to the 76ers season finale, shooting around with the team. This game was extremely important because with a certain seed in the playoffs comes certain matchups down the line.
Now they get to take on the Miami Heat.
There are no world-beaters in the Eastern Conference. Would fans still consider this season a success or would it now be classified as a failure due to their post season run being cut short earlier then expected? "This year, when I actually do play a lot of games, I don't know what excuse they're going to find next".
So while I've listened to others bemoan The Process, this Sixers season has vindicated everything that's gone on these last few seasons.

Capps said during a Wednesday press conference he wouldn't comment on the cause or manner of the child's death in North Carolina. In a 911 call placed Thursday, Steven's mother pleaded for help after her son admitted to killing 7-month-old Bennett.
Joel Embiid grabbed a loose ball and hustled toward midcourt, feigning like he would dunk. The Sixers also (likely) will get the Lakers' first-round draft pick this season, meaning they can add another piece to the roster, or trade for even more assets.
In regards to postseason play, the 76ers are one of the least-experienced teams in the playoffs. They accomplished some special milestones this season along with gaining some much needed experience that will suit them for years to come. "With the way it's been progressing, I'm hopeful I'll be back soon".
The 76ers have done just fine without him.
