Markelle Fultz registered his first career triple-double as the Philadelphia 76ers won their 16th straight game and locked up the third seed in the playoffs with a 130-95 rout of the Milwaukee Bucks.

While it's obviously fun to watch the Sixers continue to gel and win on the court, the team has been successful because they are just that, a team.

113.1 - The Sixers scored 113.1 points per 100 possessions over their 16-game winning streak to close the season. "With the way it's been progressing, I'm hopeful I'll be back soon". Embiid leads the team with 22.9 points and 11 rebounds in 63 games, helping Philly clinch its first playoff berth since 2012.

"I think it's a snapshot into who these guys are".

Embiid hasn't played since March 28, when he collided with teammate Markelle Fultz.

He stumped for Brett Brown to win National Basketball Association coach of the year, teammate Ben Simmons for rookie of the year and himself, naturally, to win National Basketball Association defensive player of the year.

He's averaging 16.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, 8.2 assists and 1.7 steals this season. "Actually, I wouldn't say that because I don't think I'm ready to play, because it still doesn't feel all the way right", said Embiid. It's now in the past, although it's the very recent past and will take some shaking out of the players' minds. The big man is expected to wear a protective mask during the playoffs, but on Monday he told reporters he would likely miss game one on Saturday. National Basketball Association rules now allow only clear masks, but Embiid said he will appeal. 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.
