Sixers' Ben Simmons named Eastern Conference player of week

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

Led by All-Star C Joel Embiid and Rookie of the Year favorite G Ben Simmons, the Sixers finished the regular season with a 52-30 record. In an appearance before Philadelphia's final regular-season game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, Embiid and his supervillain-ish mask drew even more attention than normal, as he discussed if and when he will return in the team's first-round series. The NBA prefers that players wear clear masks, and in 2014 made LeBron James change from a black carbon-fiber mask to the clear version.

That appears to be the same mask he was wearing in an Instagram video a day earlier.

"It's not something that I deem to be, here we are, we've arrived, significant-type status", coach Brett Brown said.

Embiid, who suffered the injury March 29 (AEDT) when he and Markelle Fultz collided, was fitted for a protective facemask and was practising at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia Thursday (AEDT). It seems like he will be able to rejoin the Sixers at some point in their first-round playoff series.

"I think it's a snapshot into who these guys are".




"I'll probably fall asleep tonight and wake up in the middle of the night and start crying", said Towns. As a team the Bucks undoubtedly earned an F, but I'd argue individually this was a game of mostly average to bad individual performances from across the board. This doesn't depend exclusively on Embiid's ability to play with a protective mask, something he figures to try at some point in the series. That said, it would be fun to see the 7-footers go at it, both in the paint and with verbal salvos before, after and between games. Justin Anderson scored a game-high 25 points off the bench, while Dario Saric added 24. "I can rant and rave right now but I don't think that's the important thing. With a clear mask, it feels like there's so much reflection and I can't really see", said Embiid. Philadelphia's win over Milwaukee extended the team's franchise-record winning streak to 16 games.

James had never played every game in his first 14 National Basketball Association seasons. We're a top-three defensive team in the league and a lot of that speaks for itself.

"I feel comfortable in it".

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