PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- The Philadelphia 76ers will look to stay red hot Tuesday night when they visit the Atlanta Hawks in their penultimate game of the regular season.

Philadelphia is 50-30 and they bring a 14-game winning streak into this game. They have already tied the franchise record for longest single-season winning streak, so a victory would set a new mark. The Sixers also have already clinched home court advantage in the first-round of the playoffs and currently they sit third in the Eastern Conference.

Sixers point guard Ben Simmons is being called questionable for tonight's game. The reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week is dealing with gastroenteritis.

Atlanta is playing out the string. In fact, this will be the final game of the season for the 24-57 Hawks. The Sixers are 2-0 against Atlanta this season.

KYW's Matt Leon spoke with Pat Gallen of CBS 3 about the Sixers and how far he thinks they could go.
