The Philadelphia 76ers (48-30) beat the Pistons 115-108 on Wednesday to push their winning streak to 12 games and sweep the season series with Detroit for the first time since the 2000-2001 season. At 37-40, they are in ninth position, but 4.5 games behind Milwaukee, Washington and Miami with just five games to play in the season. Guys like Oladipo, Turner, and Glenn Robinson III have all played in the playoffs in their careers as well.

Their 47-30 record now has them in fourth place in the east and facing a first round matchup against the Pacers, a side they would no doubt be confident of beating.

Simmons helped lead the Sixers to a 121-95 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday with 15 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in only 25 minutes. Detroit was without star forward Blake Griffin, who missed his fourth straight game because of a bruised right ankle.
