Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown acknowledged that after he told his players and the media before the season began that the goal was to make the playoffs, it wasn’t well received by many in the cautious front office.
Turns out, Brown had the pulse of The Process. Not only are the Sixers headed to the postseason, they’re poised to make some noise.
The only other time the Sixers won 14 straight in a single season, Dr. J and Moses Malone delivered Philadelphia its last NBA title in 1983. The 76ers won 18 straight spanning the 1966-67 and 1967-68 seasons for the franchise’s longest overall win streak.
I wouldn’t want to play these guys in the first round with them having home-court, Carlisle said. Not in this place.

But Brown, now 125-283 in his fifth year in Philly, is still taking the long view after experiencing the pain of The Process’ early years.
He was dialed in, coach Dave Hakstol said.
Giroux said a key to his performance in such a crucial game Womens Tim Anderson Jersey was keeping his emotions in check.
When you wake up, you try to be not jacked up, he said. You learn while you go through seasons. You don’t want to try to do too much.

Michael Raffl and Ivan Provorov also scored for the Flyers, who needed at least one point to make the playoffs and eliminate the Florida Panthers from postseason contention.
We had a lot of good performances tonight and that’s what it takes, Hakstol said.
The Flyers (42-26-14) are returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2016, and will be vying for their third Stanley Cup. The club won back-to-back titles in 1973-74 and 1974-75.
We have to turn the page and get excited again, Giroux said.
Throughout his outing, Sabathia was touched up by the Orioles, allowing three home runs. Manny Machado hit two, and Chris Davis hit another.
Machado got Sabathia’s start off to a rocky start when he launched a one-out, first-inning homer into the second deck down the left-field line. In his next at-bat, Machado drove an 89 mph fastball into left-center field for his second homer off Sabathia.
