Sixers' Dario Saric questionable for Friday's game vs. Cavaliers

Sixers' Dario Saric questionable for Friday's game vs. Cavaliers

Robertson did it during the 1960-61 season - underlining just how extraordinary the feat is.

CHICAGO - Many believe it's in the Bulls' best interests to lose as many games as possible as the regular season winds down.

Philadelphia was in action at home against the Nets in a matchup of Atlantic Division teams Tuesday night. It's the first time they won 12 straight games since doing it from January 13 to February 5, 1990.

Wall St slides as US-China trade spat intensifies
The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 1%, or about 240 points, at 24,500, buoyed by gains in the shares of Boeing Co. If current gains for S&P 500 hold, it would be the best three-day run since Trump's election victory in November 2016.


It's also their 25th game this season with at least 30 assists. This will finally be the game where the 76ers sorely miss Embiid. Despite this, Simmons is on another level all together, and could be far too much for Jackson to handle at both ends of the floor. However, only one game separates these three teams. His 16.8 potential assists are the fourth-most in the league behind Russell Westbrook, James and John Wall and he assists on more than a third of Philadelphia's baskets (38 percent) compared to 28 percent by James during his rookie year.

JJ Redick tormented the Pistons.

First, the Bucks need one more victory to clinch a second straight postseason berth.

Strong Storms Possible Tonight
Saturday will see cool temperatures, with morning highs in the 60s and will drop throughout the day into the 50s by the afternoon. A Freeze Watch is in effect for areas near Sherman-Gainesville-Bowie-Decatur-Mineral Wells and to the west and northwest.


Richaun Holmes, Amir Johnson and Ersan Ilyasova could fill in with the rotation, but there is a steep drop-off behind the starters. Fultz returned March 26 against the Nuggets after missing 68 games with a shoulder injury.

With Redick leading the way, the Sixers opened up a 19-point cushion in the second quarter. Listen, we lost our starting point guard (George Hill) last game, so we're trying to get everybody acclimated. The Nets were able to take a 5-point lead against the Sixers, on the back of smooth ball movement and strong perimeter shooting. The team is 6 in scoring defense as they allow 103.6 points a game. Jarrett Allen had 5 points and only one field goal attempt.

SALT LAKE CITY - Ricky Rubio scored 31 points on 10-of-15 shooting, added eight assists and six rebounds, and the Utah Jazz beat the Los Angeles Lakers 117-110 on Tuesday night. Leuer has been out since October 31 with a sprained ankle: he could be done for the year after surgery. It was a loss marked by the Nets' same consistent inconsistencies - poor rebounding, streaky shooting and turnovers. "They make it easy for me". Saric missed his third with cellulitis, a bacterial infection, in his right elbow.

Downer was in court with fellow prosecutors Raymond Mathenjwa and Almicia Coetzee, while Zuma was represented by Hoosen Gani SC. Anton Katz SC appeared for Thales, a corporate accused who will be represented during the trial by Christine Guirrera.


Saric also sat out Sunday's game against the Charlotte Hornets with the same issue. He makes up for this by getting to the rim: His 15.5 drives per game rank sixth this season and he converts better than 71 percent in the restricted area. The Eastern Conference playoff field is now set, although there's still plenty of uncertainty over the actual matchups.
