Sixers Beat Bucks, Clinches Third Seed
The Philadelphia 76ers are headed to the playoffs!
History was made last night as Markelle Fultz became the youngest NBA player in history to record a triple-double, his first. To add even more glory to last night’s victory, Justin Anderson scored a season-high 25 points.
The Sixers ended the season with sweet sixteen straight victories, thrashing the Milwaukee Bucks 130-95.
“I didn’t know what to expect,” Ben Simmons said of the Sixers storm.
They put an end to the six-year playoff drought with a franchise record, making all of Philly ‘Trust The Process.’ They will face the Miami Heat in the first round on Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center.

“I asked a simple question … I did not point a finger, I asked a question and now my life is in jeopardy because of a question. But I’m going to continue to do my job,” she continued.
Mayor Kenney Visits Meek Mill In Prison
Philly.com- On Wednesday morning, Mayor Kenney visited Meek Mill at the state prison in Chester, according to his office, joining the list of celebrities, athletes, and business moguls who have recently spent time behind bars with the imprisoned rapper.
Ajeenah Amir, spokeswoman for Mayor Kenney said the mayor spent about an hour with Mill after being invited to the penitentiary by Michael Rubin, the billionaire co-owner of the 76ers, who has become one of Mill’s biggest advocates.
Kenney “believes [Mill] would better serve the community outside of prison, and that his case makes clear and urgent the desperate need to continue working with our partners to reform the criminal justice system,” she said in an email.
