The Sixers, meanwhile, have been 4-8 without their No. 1 option, Joel Embiid.

According to ESPN.com, Erving said the following of the 2016 No. 1 overall draft pick out of LSU: "Once-in-a-decade, maybe once-in-a-lifetime-type player. Now we're showing that we can do that".

The win was the Sixers' 11th straight as they consolidated fourth spot in the Easter Conference to remain bound for their first play-offs in six years with five games to finish the regular season.

The Sixers with four games to go are now tied with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third seed in the Eastern Conference.

Embiid had surgery Saturday to fix the broken bone around his left eye.

"(He's) able to make everybody better immediately each and every time down the floor, guys are spotting up or looking to cut or keying off of triggers that come out of his handling skills", Erving told Philadelphia media after having his statue unveiled outside 76ers training headquarters.

Philadelphia 76ers guard JJ Redick (17) celebrates during the second half against the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesars Arena. He scored 10 of his points in the second quarter alone. Philadelphia was up 65-49 at halftime, and the margin didn't reach single digits again until the waning moments of the fourth.

Local residents told the paper he was well known for having mental health problems and did chores for local small businesses. The police shooting of Stephon Clark , an unarmed black man, ignited protests in Sacramento, Calif., that have lasted weeks.

He knows that no team has been hotter than the Sixers, who have reeled off 12 straight victories. "They tore us up tonight".

Pistons: Andre Drummond had 13 points and 15 rebounds. Detroit is 25-15 with Jackson in the lineup.

â– Tolliver has found a groove in the starting role with Griffin out for the last four games, tying his season high with 25 points. "I observed closely their whole process and how they built this", he said prior to the game ... "Things happen. Players left, players got hurt". He kept the team in the game until the end, finishing with 14 points, 12 assists, three rebounds, two blocks, and one steal.

"You always want to avoid turnovers down the stretch, but you have to give the Pistons credit".

Brett Brown talked like the 76ers were going to be tested.

Moe Wagner, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Duncan Robinson, fresh off their Final Four appearance with MI, were shown on the big screen at the game and drew a roar from the crowd.

As of Friday afternoon, 57 percent of public bets are siding with the host Sixers.
