The time is nigh. Later tonight, the Sixers will play the Detroit Pistons in their final game against a team they are chasing to the bottom. At the same time, the Warriors will be playing the Wizards. Detroit, Golden State and Washington all have 23 wins, three fewer than the Sixers. A loss tonight will give Philly a fighting chance at moving up as high as the fifth-worst record. A win and you can forget about it. If there was a day left to circle on your calendar, this is it. Excited?
