SIXERS| Wins: 51.1 | Seed: No. 3 (55 percent)

Most likely playoff opponent: Pacers

 

The Sixers gained the edge in the red-hot race for No. 3 with their 132-130 win over Cleveland on Friday, but their position is not safe.

LeBron James and the Cavs hold the tiebreaker (better conference record) and should be able to handle New York in their final two games, so Philly– winner of 13 straight — probably needs three more wins to stay at No. 3. Philly’s toughest remaining game is versus Milwaukee on the final night of the season (Wed., 8 p.m. ET on ESPN).

On paper, the No. 3 seed seems especially important this year, with the potential opportunity to face the injury-riddled Celtics in the conference semifinals rather than the healthy Raptors.

Remaining games

  • PHI: vs. DAL (4/8), @ ATL (4/10), vs. MIL (4/11)
  • CLE: @ NYK (4/9), vs. NYK (4/11)
