The Philadelphia 76ers' two-week hot streak remains alive heading into the final week of the regular season. For the last ten games, the Sixers have gone 8-2, with all eight of those victories coming consecutively.
At this point, they are one win away from officially clinching the first seed in the Eastern Conference. The 76ers can make it happen as early as Tuesday night as they are set to face the Indiana Pacers for the final time this season on the road.
These two teams met for the first time in late January as the shorthanded Sixers paid the Pacers a visit. Although Philly struggled and trailed throughout the entire matchup, they pulled off a remarkable comeback and defeated the Pacers 119-110.
Then, in early March, the Pacers visited the Sixers in South Philly and took a beatdown as the Sixers snagged a 130-114 victory. Now, the Pacers and the Sixers will meet one last time, and it could be a potential preview to the first round of the playoffs.
Although the Pacers are in ninth place, they will have an opportunity to crack the postseason as they'll be eligible to compete in the NBA's play-in tournament next week. If they get in as the eighth seed, they'll likely face the Sixers in the first round.
