76ers All-Star center confirmed out for Game 1 against Heat

Bucks blown out in regular season finale against Sixers earn seventh seed

These two teams split their four games in the regular season with all of them being single-digit games and half of them decided by a single possession.

There had to be multiple stretches this season when every Sixers fan wondered if they would ever see Markelle Fultz play. The 76ers are arguably the hottest team in the league at the moment having ended the regular season with sixteen consecutive wins.

Simmons, who averaged 15.8 points, 8.2 assists and 8.1 rebounds while shooting 54.5 percent set an National Basketball Association rookie record with 12 triple-doubles and formed a devastating tandem with the other franchise cornerstone, All-Star center Joel Embiid, to lift the team back among the Eastern Conference's best.

Before his latest injury, the Sixers had a 2-9 record without Joel Embiid. It was certainly unlikely while he was sidelined for 68 games.

With Irving out for the rest of the season due to injury, the Celtics who are already without their star forward Gordon Hayward, look a far more beatable side.

Be sure to catch Fultz and the rest of the playoff-bound Sixers as they take on the Miami Heat in the first round this Saturday at 8PM ET.

Seven players are averaging in double figures for the 76ers, they are Joel Embiid (22.9), JJ Redick (17.1), Ben Simmons (15.8), Dario Saric (14.6), Marco Belinelli (13.6), Robert Covington (12.6) and Ersan Ilyasova (10.8).

"I like Houston and Golden State, pending their health, as being my top two favorites", five-time victor Kobe Bryant said during a conference call to promote his new basketball analysis show "Detail" that will run on ESPN during the postseason.

"It's unbelievable, that's the support I've been getting all year, going through what I've been through, they've been like that the whole year", Fultz said. But there's plenty of young (Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown) and veteran (Al Horford, Marcus Morris) talent on a 55-game victor that features one of the league's best coaches in Brad Stevens.
