Simmons' haul places him alongside the great Oscar Robertson as the only player with at least 1200 points, 600 assists and 600 rebounds in their rookie season.

Neither Simmons nor Redick played in the fourth quarter for Philadelphia, which won its third consecutive contest without All-Star center Joel Embiid.

Are the Philadelphia 76ers going to cover as road favorites tonight when they play at the Detroit Pistons?

76ers: Host Detroit on Wednesday night. The 76ers are minus Embiid as he recovers from his orbital fracture: in addition, Saric is being treated for cellulitis in his elbow after he opened up a cut last week. "That's the same next year".

"It's the beauty of FaceTime where we can talk", plugged-in Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

"I think I can help", said Fultz, who finished with 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting and three assists in 21 minutes. The risk of bringing him back into a group that's fairly tight was ever-present. With the easy win, Philadelphia improved to 47-30 overall which is now good for fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings. The Pistons have won seven of their last eight games to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

The Phoenix Suns ended a franchise-record, 15-game losing streak with a 97-94 victory over the Sacramento Kings, the Orlando Magic beat the New York Knicks 97-73, and the Denver Nuggets downed the Indiana Pacers 107-104. For the Pistons, Blake Griffin won't play due to the bone bruise in his right ankle. It cannot be stressed enough just how good he is - if we did a 2017 redraft, Mitchell is a top-3 pick and you can make a case that he deserves to go No. 1 overall.

"From a physical and mental standpoint, we weren't focused and ready to play", he added. The basic message was let's get some rest for the guys who are playing big minutes.

The Philadelphia 76ers (47-30) take on the Detroit Pistons (37-40) look to continue their winning streaks when they go head-to-head at Little Caesars Arena. Drummond was fined by the league for the incident but not suspended.

"It's tough when you're not playing for anything", Redick said. Simmons (13.6 points, 12.0 assists, 10.6 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks) has been stellar for the 76ers while Anthony Tolliver (14.2 points) has contributed greatly to the Pistons.

During their last five games, the Pistons have scored an average of 111.0 points per game (7.7 above their season average) and allowed an average of 99.6 points per game (4.0 below their season average). "Whenever things are not going your way or you have some guys go out, whether it be by injury or by whatever, you just have to figure out a way to win and have guys step up".

The games on the 76ers' regular season schedule might be running out, but nothing is changing. Embiid was a major factor in each of those victories, averaging 26.0 points.
