The Philadelphia 76ers have it going on in a big way heading into the playoffs. We can ask the Milwaukee Bucks all about that. In their regular season finale Wednesday evening, both squads had something to play for.
But it became apparently relatively quickly that Philadelphia meant business in a big way. Looking for its 16th consecutive win to close out the season, Philly opened up a 46-18 lead after the first quarter and took an absurd 80-44 advantage into halftime.
As has been the case with these Sixers in recent weeks, the Twitterverse absolutely lost its mind. Here are the best reactions.

The Sixers will be the first team to enter the NBA playoffs on a 16-game win streak.

The #Sixers are up 70-29 midway through the second quarter and Ben Simmons hasn't scored and JJ Redick is not playing…and no Joel Embiid.

As the #sixers are up 41 points with 5 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, on their way to their 16th straight win and 3rd seed in the East, the crowd erupts in a "Trust the Process" chant.

The Sixers are really beating another playoff team by 31 without Joel Embiid and JJ Reddick. Sam Hinkie died for this.

Sixers score 70 before Bucks reach 30.

This just in, the Flyers really wanted the Bucks in the first round of the playoffs.
