Sixers Clinch Playoffs and Complete Season Sweep by Blowing Out Nets

The Philadelphia 76ers clinched a playoff berth Friday night, and appropriately, they did it against the Nets, who they beat four times this season by an average of 15 points.

This one was the biggest blowout of all. The Nets made just two of their first 12 shots and were in an 18-5 hole midway through the first quarter. They were within four early in the second, but the Sixers then went on a 17-4 run, led by 17 at the half, and were up 29 at the end of the third. The lead reached 35 midway through the fourth before Philly settled for a 25-point win.

The Sixers shot 56 percent from the field and turned the ball over just nine times. The Nets were actually led by Brandan Wright, who finished with season-high 15 points and a season-high 11 rebounds, and Mario West, who scored 13 points on 5-for-6 shooting in his Nets debut. Deron Williams had four points, five rebounds and seven assists in 22 minutes.
