Cavaliers trail 76ers by one game for third place in the East with one to play
This year's team played hard, had some really cool moments and has some very young and talented players - Taurean Prince, John Collins, Dennis Schroder - but this isn't the same product by far and that's a shame.
The Philadelphia 76ers are downright rolling right now, as they haven't lost a game in almost a month and came into Tuesday outscoring teams by almost 13 points in their last five contests. The Bucks are 13 in assists as they dish out 23.2 per contest.
Instead, the Bucks lost and, in truth, they didn't even wait until they were out of the first quarter to have lost the game. Three of the four games were decided by six points or less.
In Orlando, Rodney Purvis scored 16 points for the Magic and Mario Hezonja finished with 15 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Jabari Parker is grabbing 4.9 rebounds.
The Atlanta Hawks 2017-18 season, a season of few ups and plenty of downs, officially ended on Tuesday night with a loss to the playoff bound Philadelphia 76ers. Going into Tuesday's regular-season finale at Utah, Cook had reached double figures in scoring in 14 straight games.
Hey Philadelphia 76ers fans, are you ready for some playoff basketball? The 76ers rank fourth in possessions per game while the Bucks are 25th.
The Nuggets became the third team since 2009 to miss the playoff with 46 victories, highlighting how deep the talent is in the Western Conference this season.
The 76ers are above average on the offensive end of the floor. Philadelphia ranks 24th in steals allowed per game (8.5). Philadelphia is 1 in rebounding with 47.2 boards a night and 2 with 27 assists per contest. Defensively, the 76ers are yielding 105.4 points per game against the opposing teams. Embiid tops in rebounds with 11.0 while Simmons tops in assists with 8.2.

There is something at stake for both teams in this one. By losing, Philly gets the winning streak monkey off their back and will play Indiana.
Other games that will help determine seeds and first-round matchups for the playoffs are NY at Cleveland, Washington at Orlando, Milwaukee at Philadelphia, San Antonio at New Orleans, Toronto at Miami and Memphis at Oklahoma City.
