If the Sixers win their first-round matchup with the Heat, they will take on either the Celtics or Milwaukee Bucks in the second round. They would then take on either the Cavaliers, Toronto Raptors, Indiana Pacers or Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Houston Rockets are the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, but Embiid seems to believe the Warriors will come out of the West for the fourth consecutive year.
Philly is making its first playoff appearance since 2011-12, and it is riding a 16-game winning streak.
The Sixers’ first postseason game is Saturday, but Embiid won’t play because of a broken bone near his left eye.
