Which way will the voters go?

In an interview with ESPN's Chris Haynes, Simmons pulled no punches about who he considers to be atop the leaderboard for the hardware, saying "Who would I pick? Me, 100 percent", Simmons told reporters Saturday.

JJ Redick led five players in double figures with a team-high 18 points as the Philadelphia 76ers became a 50-game victor for the first time in 17 years with a 109-97 victory Sunday afternoon over the visiting Dallas Mavericks. "If you look at the numbers, you'll see".

Over seven games, Fultz has averaged 7.3 points and 4.3 assists in 16.0 minutes per game. He has also recorded 12 triple-doubles which puts him second in league history for rookies, behind Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson who had 26 such games, according to ESPN. He has scored 30 points in five games. Simmons has led the 76ers to a 6-0 record without the injured Embiid down the stretch, extending their overall winning streak to 14 games and giving them the East's No.3 seed with just two games left on the schedule.

Trump announced Pompeo's nomination to become the 70th secretary of state in the same March 13 tweet in which he dumped Tillerson. Pompeo was nominated as the Central Intelligence Agency director in a bipartisan vote, with 66 senators voting in his favor.

As far as Ben Simmons is concerned, the Rookie of the Year award should be no contest.

Cleveland at New York: Cavaliers finish No. 3 with two wins over New York and a 76ers loss; LeBron James is 19-8 all-time at MSG. For right now he is just sticking with his prediction that they will at least make the Eastern Conference Finals.

Unlike Simmons, who has been able to defer to Embiid as Philadelphia's leading scorer, Mitchell is Utah's No.1 option on offense.

After averaging the fourth fastest pace in the league over the 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season at 102.04, the Simmons lead Sixers have vaulted up the ranks to number one overall over the last 14 games, now racing at a scorching 105.11.

David Price exits Red Sox game after one inning
He was 0-for-12 with 10 strikeouts against Chris Sale entering the night but finished 3-for-3 versus the left-hander last night. New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge smacked a 444-foot homer for his team's only run in a 14-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox .

Kevin Durant added 17 points and nine assists for the Warriors, whose winning streak against Phoenix is a franchise record for a single opponent. When the Sixers beat the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, they clinched home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs for the first time since 2002-03. The 76ers have one of the most dominant defensive centers in the game in Joel Embiid, who handles the ball and shoots threes.

Mitchell is considered the other rookie in the chase with Simmons for ROY honors.

With the Sixers looking for a deep playoff run, a Rookie of the Year award could be the cherry on top of a process that has tested the cold hearts of Philly fans everywhere. Mitchell leads all the first-year players in scoring, but that's his only advantage. In addition to shooting at a 44.0 percent clip from the field, he has returned an exceptional 5.0 assist-to-turnover ratio.

Obviously, both of these teams are going to be challenged in the first round, and nothing can be taken for granted with two teams that will need the youngest players on the roster to be the best players on the team, especially with their injury situations. That's why the Sixers want to control their own destiny by sweeping their remaining two games.
