(AP) — Despite a largely rough final two months of the season, the Philadelphia 76ers have played well down the stretch.
The visiting 76ers hope to build even more momentum heading into the playoffs with a fifth consecutive victory in Thursday night’s regular-season finale against the Detroit Pistons.
Philadelphia (35-30) had a four-game lead in the Atlantic Division on Feb. 13, but is 15-21 since then and headed to the postseason as the seventh or eighth seed. The 76ers are tied with New York in the standings, but they are eighth in the Eastern Conference based on the Knicks owning the head-to-head tiebreaker.
