The Detroit Pistons five game winning streak was snapped and the team has been eliminated from playoff contention after a 115-108 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers last night at Little Caesars Arena. Big man Joel Embiid has played well too, averaging 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 blocks per game this season. The 76ers have five games remaining, including Friday's home contest against the Cavaliers.

The Philadelphia 76ers have won 10 games in a row. The Pistons' point guard shot 1-11 from the field and had to settle for a lot of bad looks. He hasn't improved much in the National Basketball Association, making just 34 percent of his jump shots for the 76ers, last among 221 players with at least 150 attempts in 2017-18.

Philadelphia has its longest winning streak since 1990.

CHICAGO - Many believe it's in the Bulls' best interests to lose as many games as possible as the regular season winds down.

Playing with a rest advantage, Stan Van Gundy's Pistons failed to stop the 76ers from executing. Their 13-26 record away is woeful, but at home they are sitting at 24-14, akin to sides like Boston and OKC. The 76ers have five games remaining. The Kyrie Irving injury makes this one matter even more.

Redick had another response, with a lay-in, followed by a 3-pointer from Marco Belinelli (19 points).

Center Andre Drummond had 13 points and 16 rebounds for the Pistons.

"(He's a) once in a decade, maybe once in a lifetime-type player", Erving said. He also had six assists, one shy of the season high he set against the Pistons on December 2.

Simmons started Tuesday's game against Brooklyn 13 points shy of the milestone before a third-quarter basket put him in a stratosphere only previously occupied by Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson (1960-61). The Nets came close to tying and taking the lead back in the second, but the Sixers maintained their cushion on the back of Ben Simmons.

Canberra-born Patty Mills scored 17 points for the San Antonio Spurs, who lost to the Los Angeles Clippers 113-110.

Both teams are locked into the playoffs but the Portland Trail Blazers are still fighting for postseason seeding. Philadelphia played yesterday, and travelling back-to-back will no doubt impact their performance, but they should still be able to get over the line. All of those games have been played with Simmons in the lineup.
