The Sixers led by 17 points in the first quarter and let it get away. The Nets lost on Sunday, and the Sixers now have a one-game lead in the loss column. With the tiebreaker in hand, that lead is effectively two games with eight games to play for the Sixers. For the Sixers, the No. 1 seed is a big deal as it likely means avoiding the No. 3 Bucks in the second round.
