The Mavericks lost their last game against the Pistons. It went to overtime in Detroit but the home team prevailed. That’s not anything the Mavs are going to worry about.
They did get a good look and impression of Johnathan Motley, who scored 26 points and 12 rebounds in 40 minutes. He also hit the game-tying three that sent the game into overtime.
A rookie out of Baylor, Motley has spent most of the season in the G-League. He’s got size, strength, speed, and if he has the skill he flashed in the Detroit game on a consistent basis, he’s got a good chance to find a niche in this league as a 6’10” power forward or even small-ball center.
Dallas is giving all sorts of young players a chance to play big minutes down the stretch. Aaron Harrison played 42 minutes in a game just recently and finished with 13 points.
The 76ers are in a much different place than the Mavs here in April.
Philly is the hottest team in basketball; it has won 13 games in a row, including Friday night’s 132–130 thriller over Cleveland to gain sole possession of the 3-seed in the Eastern Conference.
Philadelphia now has a stranglehold on the spot with three winnable games remaining, though I believe Cleveland has the tiebreak by virtue of division record, if the two teams tie. They split the season series.
As the standings look now, Philly would play Miami in the first round, a nice matchup for the 76ers but one that won’t be an easy win. The Heat is deep and has played the best teams in the league well all season, despite losing lots of games to terrible teams.
Regardless of whether the first round opponent is Miami, or Washington, or Milwaukee, or even Indiana if the Cavs jump it again, Philadelphia’s primary concern is getting Joel Embiid back.
Embiid was expected to miss 2–4 weeks after his surgery on the orbital bone in his face. Two weeks is pretty much juts before the start of the first round. He was in attendance for the Cleveland game and looked to be in good spirits.
The surgeons have reported good progress with his recovery thus far.
The Sixers have won the last five without their all-star but you sense the young team needs him if it’s to advance in the playoffs. Let’s hope Embiid will be ready to go next weekend.
