76ers' Dario Saric Being Treated for Elbow Cellulitis

Ben Simmons Is The Rookie Of The Year, And It Might Not Be As Close As You Think

Ben Simmons Is The Rookie Of The Year, And It Might Not Be As Close As You Think

The Pistons have been working hard to get back into playoff contention, winning their past five games, but they will fall short of their aim. That's why Friday night's contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers is the Sixers' biggest game in five seasons. They also harassed the Pistons forcing 13 first-half turnovers and 17 overall.

The 76ers were in control all night, despite playing on the second leg of a back to back set.

JJ Redick scored 25 points to lead the in-form Sixers, who won their 12th successive game. The Sixers would have been a 27-win team if that happened over the course of a full year, although with Embiid sidelined until the postseason, that is going to change one way or the other.

Reggie Jackson had one of those games to bolster the arguments of the naysayers.

Tolliver kept the Pistons in it with a 3-pointer - part of his eight straight Pistons points - but Redick had another 3-pointer amid the spurt and the margin was down to 10.

At the end of the day, Andre Drummond was really a non-issue for the Sixers, not needing to truly worry about him without Embiid on the floor. Bullock led the starters in plus-minus with a plus-three. Belinelli scored 19 points and Simmons had 16. He started aggressive and remained so for most of this one. As it sits today, the Cavaliers hold the three seed, the 76ers hold the four seed, and the Pacers hold the five.

During Simmons' one-and-done season at LSU in 2015-16, he shot 56 percent from the floor but a terrible 31 percent on jump shots, ranking him 5,054th out of 6,873 college players taking at least as many jump shot attempts that season per Synergy Sports. The over-under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, opened at 222 and is now at 224.

Saric is the team's fourth-leading scorer at 14.9 points per game. He settled for too many poor shots in the first half, but redeemed himself later.

The 21-year-old had 12 points by halftime and sat out the final quarter as the Sixers held a 21-point advantage at the end of the third. His 19 points tied his second-highest production of the season, with wins over the Bucks and Nets.

Saric has been a key part of the 76ers' success in his second season in the National Basketball Association, averaging 14.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.
