The Philadelphia 76ers have officially qualified for the NBA Playoffs. The Sixers currently have a record of 48–23 and are No. 3 in the Eastern Conference, behind only the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Sixers don't have a game on Tuesday night because they lost to the Chicago Bulls at home on Monday. With some help, they were able to get into the playoffs.
The Brooklyn Nets lost at home to the Cleveland Cavaliers by a score of 115-109. This made it official for the Sixers to get a spot.
On Wednesday, Philadelphia will start a four-game road trip by going to Chicago to play the Bulls.
The Sixers have earned a spot in the playoffs for the sixth year in a row. The last time they didn't make the playoffs was Joel Embiid's rookie year, 2016–17.
They want to win their first title since 1983, and Embiid and James Harden are leading the way.
They also want to be the fourth Philadelphia team to make it to the finals in their sport, joining the Union in MLS, the Phillies in MLB, and the Eagles in the NFL.
