Philadelphia 76ers coach Doc Rivers does not think Dwight Howard deserved a 16th technical foul.
The 76ers (47-23) will play their penultimate regular season matchup Friday at The Center, hosting the Orlando Magic (21-49) for the first meeting of a two-game set. The matchup marks another chance for the Sixers to clinch the No. overall seed in the Eastern Conference.
This has been the first and quite possibly the only NBA season in which we have had two NBA teams in our proximity — the Orlando Magic to the east and the Toronto/Tampa Raptors to our west. The seasons of both teams will end unceremoniously Sunday with the regular season finales of the Raptors in Tampa, and of the Magic in Philadelphia. Neither team qualified for the NBA playoffs.
