76ers' Fultz becomes youngest player to ever record a triple-double

The Milwaukee Bucks will take on the Philadelphia 76ers in one of the National Basketball Association games that will determine the playoff seeding on Wednesday, start time at 8:00 PM ET, at Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA. Bucks vs 76ers live stream is on Watch ESPN.

Philadelphia will open the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the sixth-seeded Miami Heat while Milwaukee will face the second seeded Boston Celtics.

At just $4,000, Fultz returned 47 FanDuel points at rate of 11.75 points per $1,000.

He's averaging 16.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, 8.2 assists and 1.7 steals this season. It's definitely a confidence builder and just keep trying to build up going into the playoffs.

With JJ Redick ruled out prior to the game with lower back tightness, a number of guys stepped up and this game wasn't even close.

"I don't think I'm ready to play", he said. "I just have to take it day-by-day".

As well as the Sixers have played without him, Philadelphia coach Brett Brown understandably wants Embiid back as soon as possible.

Dario Saric led the hafltime scorers with 17 one day after suffering a lip laceration and a chipped tooth.

But the Bucks would have to wait on the results of Miami's matchup with Toronto and the Washington-Orlando game to lock in their playoff position and determine their first-round opponent. Embiid said he deserved to win National Basketball Association defensive player of the year, Simmons should be rookie of the year and Brown for coach of the year. "We believed in ourselves". Fultz ended the night having recorded the first triple-double of his career, recording a line of 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists in 25 minutes coming off the bench. We won a lot of games.

Embiid is used to sitting out with the Sixers - he missed his first two seasons with a broken foot and played just 31 games last season because of a knee injury.

The other West playoff match-up is the top-seeded Houston Rockets against the Minnesota Timberwolves, who defeated the Denver Nuggets to clinch the eighth spot. "If it was my decision, I would probably play". "It'll hit me, what happened".

In Cleveland, LeBron James played in his 82nd game, scored 10 points and then got some rest for the playoffs in the Cavaliers' loss to NY in coach Jeff Hornacek's final game with the Knicks.
