Joel Embiid wears striking mask courtside, goes through shooting drills

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid practices with a protective mask before a game against the Milwaukee Bucks at Wells Fargo Center. Rookie Markelle Fultz became the youngest player ever to record a triple-double with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Fultz and the Sixers are now in fine form and ready for their first playoff game in six years, as they enter the postseason with a 16-game winning streak and as the number third seed in the Eastern Conference.

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

Justin Anderson scored a team-high 25 points and Dario Saric delivered 24 for the red-hot Sixers in one of 12 games on Wednesday marking the end of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association regular season.

"It was just a matter of going out there and enjoying myself and playing confident", Fultz said.

The story didn't change in the fourth and final frame and the Bucks finished out their regular season portion of the year with their worst loss of the season, a fitting end to their unbalanced, bewildering campaign. "I think it's a snapshot into who these guys are".

"I just got to take it day-by-day", Embiid told reporters.

Embiid said he will likely miss at least Game 1 of the playoffs this weekend because of the injury.

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.

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

Ingles had five points, including just one three-pointer from two attempts, and Exum had six points and three assists.

"We do stuff slowly", Brown said. "We believed in ourselves".

Fultz finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists.

The Philadelphia 76ers (51-3) are the hottest team in the National Basketball Association winning 15 games in a row.

Fultz played the first four games of the season then was taken out to rehabilitate his shoulder which affected his jump shot.

The Timberwolves advance to play Harden's Rockets in the first round. "Hopefully, it gets approved and I get to play in it". The record was previously held by Cleveland Cavaliers icon LeBron James (20 years, 20 days).
