Philadelphia 76ers vs. Milwaukee Bucks - 4/11/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Joel Embiid

The Milwaukee Bucks were well out of reach early against the red-hot Philadelphia 76ers, falling 130-95 on Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Here is the Sixers-Heat playoff schedule.

In New Orleans, Anthony Davis had 22 points, 15 rebounds, four blocks and three steals as the Pelicans ran past San Antonio. "Obviously I want to play, but right now I feel like I'm not ready yet. with the way it's been progressing, hopefully I'll be back soon.

I think it's a snapshot into who these guys are". Embiid suffered a broken bone around his left eye and underwent surgery back on March 31.

The NBA playoffs begin this weekend, though the official dates and times for the games have not been announced yet.

Embiid made his first All-Star team this season and leads the 76ers in points (23.2) and rebounds (11.1) per game. Philadelphia's win over Milwaukee extended the team's franchise-record winning streak to 16 games. Meanwhile, the Bucks slipped into the No. 7 seed and will face the second-seeded Boston Celtics in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. However, he said there have been no complications with his vision or recovery.

76ers head coach Brett Brown spoke to ESPN after the game and explained why he thought Fultz' teammates swarming him after he achieved his triple-double was such a special sight to see.

Niloa Jokic tallied 35 points and 10 rebounds for the Nuggets but he missed six of his last eight shots as Denver's late rally fell short.

"I feel I've been the best defensive player in the league this year", Embiid said.

By finishing with a 44-38 record and tied with the Heat, the Bucks will have to await the results of a tiebreaker to determine if they will keep their first-round pick in the 2018 draft or send it to Phoenix. It's now in the past, although it's the very recent past and will take some shaking out of the players' minds.

Embiid believes there are very specific advantages to wearing a black mask vs. a clear mask, and he told reporters he is going to petition the league to wear his in the playoffs, whenever he decides to return. National Basketball Association rules now allow only clear masks, but Embiid said he will appeal.

At one stage on Wednesday, the Sixers led 72-37.
