But to Philadelphia 76ers fans, those may be the same thing.

With the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs upon us, we take a look at first round the matchup between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Miami Heat. No. 7 Milwaukee will meet No. 2 Boston.

All Brown knows is that he is not going to change things just because he no longer has to brush the snow off his auto on his way to the game.

His teammates doused Fultz with strawberry milk, chocolate milk and water in celebration of the record feat.

Fultz should have hit up Embiid and borrowed something to protect his face.

On Friday, just one day before the team’s opening playoff game, the team shared video of the opera taking a break from rehearsals to perform the 76ers theme song, “Here Come the Sixers”.

The Cavaliers or Raptors are likely to be one of the finalists in the Eastern Conference Finals and in all honesty that would probably be a hurdle too big for this Sixers team to overcome at the moment. Most importantly though this team finished with the three seed entering the playoffs which will go a long way when it comes to favorable playoff match ups down the line. And without Embiid for the last eight games, the Sixers played even faster and shot even quicker.

“I know that I can kind of, not my take my time, but be more calm about it and make sure that everything is right”, Embiid said.

“I wouldn’t necessarily say we’ve struggled”, Spoelstra said. Let’s just hope the milestone of winning a championship can be accomplished sooner then later! After their star center suffered an orbital stress fracture in his eye, doubters wondered how the the team would play without him. How many games will Joel Embiid play?

With Game 1 tipping off on Saturday, April 14 at 8 PM ET, this matchup is undoubtedly going to a battle.

Bucks: Jabari Parker scored 25 and Giannis Antetokounmpo had 10 points and 10 rebounds.

“I suppose there is an element of naivete”, the coach said. “I actually think, in a way, not having been in it is an advantage”.

Although he’s been cleared of concussion protocol, Embiid has been wearing a mask in shootaround, and as recently as Wednesday he told the Associated Press that he wasn’t feeling up to par.
