    The Houston Texans have signed four unrestricted free agents led by cornerback Aaron Colvin and re-signed seven of their own free agents Paul Krause Jersey , including veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph.

    Houston also signed center Zach Fulton, tackle Seantrel Henderson and guard Senio Kelemete and re-signed defensive end Angelo Blackson, receiver Bruce Ellington, outside linebacker Ufomba Kamalu, punter Shane Lechler, safety Corey Moore and inside linebacker Brian Peters.

    Colvin played for the Jaguars the past four seasons where he had 164 tackles, 14 passes defended and 12 tackles for losses. A fourth-round pick in 2014, Colvin appeared in every game for the Jaguars last season and had his first career interception in Jacksonville’s playoff game against the Bills.

    Fulton has started 46 games over the past four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and Henderson started at right tackle in 26 games combined for the Buffalo Bills over the past four seasons. Kelemete started eight regular-season games for New Orleans last season and appeared in both of the team’s playoff games.

    Joseph is a 12-year veteran who has spent the past seven seasons in Houston. He has started 103 games for the Texans and has 14 interceptions and 329 tackles.

    Joel Embiid grabbed a loose ball and hustled toward midcourt, feigning like he would dunk.

    Embiid’s gold sneakers and peach-colored jacket – and a red Malik McDowell Jersey , white and blue basketball – were a giveaway that he was again in street clothes. With or without Embiid, the 76ers are streaking into the postseason as the hottest team in the NBA.

    Embiid and JJ Redick watched from the bench, Ben Simmons had a scoreless first half and the Philadelphia 76ers still won their 16th consecutive game, thumping the Milwaukee Bucks 130-95 Wednesday night to clinch the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference.

    The 52-win Sixers will open the Eastern Conference playoffs against the sixth-seeded Miami Heat. No. 7 Milwaukee will meet No. 2 Boston.

    Markelle Fultz, the No. 1 pick of the 2017 draft who missed 68 games with a shoulder injury, became the youngest player in NBA history (19 years, 317 days) with a triple-double with 13 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds.

    ”It was just a matter of going out there and enjoying myself and playing confident,” Fultz said.

    His teammates doused Fultz with strawberry milk Matthew Slater Jersey , chocolate milk and water in celebration of the record feat.

    ”It’s all love and appreciation,” he said.

    Fultz should have hit up Embiid and borrowed something to protect his face.

    Embiid wore a black mask during warmups to protect his broken bone around his left eye, then changed into his garish outfit to watch the Sixers romp to a stunning 80-44 lead at the break.

    Embiid said he will likely miss at least Game 1 of the playoffs this weekend because of the injury.

    The 76ers have done just fine without him.

    Redick was a late scratch with lower back tightness and Simmons, who finished with four points, missed both shots in the first half. No problem. The Sixers hit 11 3s in the first half and could have celebrated the No. 3 seed at halftime.

    The Sixers had to win to earn the three spot and they dominated a Bucks team that was fighting for seeding in the playoffs. At one point, the Sixers led 72-37 – at the same time the Flyers were down 7-0 to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL playoffs.

    Embiid, who entertained the crowd during timeouts, hasn’t played since March 28 when he suffered a broken bone around his left eye in a collision with Fultz. The Sixers clearly need their big man if they’re going to make a run in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Embiid leads the team with 22.9 points and 11 rebounds in 63 games, helping Philly clinch its first playoff berth since 2012.

    ”I want to play but right now I feel like I’m not ready yet Donovan Smith Jersey ,” Embiid said. ”It’s getting there. I’ve got to keep working every day. With the way it’s been progressing, I’m hopeful I’ll be back soon.”

    He said the eye was still swollen, though he doesn’t suffer from blurred vision.

    Even those with 20/20 vision needed a second look at the scoreboard to make sure the numbers were real.

    The Sixers in the first half

    – shot 59 percent from the floor (31 of 53).

    – shot 46 percent on 3s (11 of 24).

    – had 22 assists, eight steals, three blocks.

    – led by 41, 70-29.

    With the Sixers up 39, fans started chanting ”Trust the Process! Trust the Process!”

    The much-maligned – now sure to duplicated – ”process” method that saw the Sixers strip the roster of talent to guarantee losing and stockpile draft picks has been a winner. Embiid, Simmons and Fultz all played crucial roles in leading the Sixers (52-30) to their best record since the 2001 Eastern Conference champs went 56-26.

    ”It’s not something that I deem to be, here we are Sam Koch Jersey , we’ve arrived, significant-type status,” coach Brett Brown said. ”It’s not that. I want them to enjoy it. Take a deep breath. Then reload.”

    TIP-INS

    Bucks: Jabari Parker scored 25 and Giannis Antetokounmpo had 10 points and 10 rebounds.

    ”Right from the start, there were problems,” Bucks coach Joe Punty said. ”I can rant and rave right now but I don’t think that’s the important thing. It was clear we didn’t play very well.”

    76ers: The NBA rule says players must wear a clear mask but Embiid and the Sixers could petition the league for a change. … Embiid said he deserved to win NBA defensive player of the year, Simmons should be rookie of the year and Brown for coach of the year. … Justin Anderson led the Sixers with 25 points and Dario Saric had 24.
