Sixers' Markelle Fultz becomes first teen to record National Basketball Association triple-double

The Sixers beat the Milwaukee Bucks, 130-95, on Wednesday night to clinch the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference. Then there is Philadelphia, which was the only team in the National Basketball Association this season to boast five players who scored at least 1,000 points.

"I feel comfortable in it".

In the 130-95 blowout victory against the Milwaukee Bucks, Sixers' rookie G Markelle Fultz, 19, became the youngest player in National Basketball Association history to record a triple-double, adding 13 points, 10 assists, and 10 rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench.

Embiid said, via nba.com, it's "unlikely but still a chance", he plays in Game 1.

The final night of the National Basketball Association regular season has 12 games on the schedule, and eight have playoff implications.

Led by All-Star C Joel Embiid and Rookie of the Year favorite G Ben Simmons, the Sixers finished the regular season with a 52-30 record. He took part in the warmup wearing a mask to protect a broken bone in his face. The two teams met back in 2010-11 in the playoffs, when the "Big 3" of LeBron James, Chirs Bosh and Dwayne Wade disposed of the Sixers in five games.

"I want to play but right now I feel like I'm not ready yet, " Embiid said.

"I want to play but right now I feel like I'm not ready yet", Embiid said. The Heat held them to just 101 points per 100 possessions in their four meetings, but the Sixers, who led the league in passes per possession and ranked second in player movement, have since become more hard to defend. "But we're going to see how it feels". "We believed in ourselves".

He's averaging 16.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, 8.2 assists and 1.7 steals this season.

James had never played every game in his first 14 National Basketball Association seasons. Mitchell leads all the first-year players in scoring, but that's his only advantage.

"I'll probably fall asleep tonight and wake up in the middle of the night and start crying", said Towns.

The Nuggets became the third team since 2009 to miss the playoff with 46 victories, highlighting how deep the talent is in the Western Conference this season. The Wizards were confirmed as the Raptors' opponent with a 101-92 loss to the Orlando Magic.

Fultz (19 years, 317 days) broke the previous record, set by Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball (20 years, 15 days) earlier this season.

On the season, the 76ers are averaging 109.6 points, 47.3 rebounds and 27.0 assists per game. They were without Embiid for the final nine games of the streak (including the game in which he was injured), played at the league's fastest pace over that stretch, and managed to cut down on turnovers. Embiid tops in rebounds with 11.0 while Simmons tops in assists with 8.2. Defensively, the Bucks are yielding 106.5 points per game.

There are also individual milestones and team records on the line.
