Joel Embiid, Sixers stifle Pistons in final road game of season
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joel Embiid scored 29 points, Tyrese Maxey added 22 and the Philadelphia 76ers won their eighth straight game, 118-104 over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night. Embiid missed a second straight season with injuries, and Okafor averaged 17.5 points in a rookie season that included a string of off-court headaches. The following season, Okafor never really meshed with Embiid, piled up games in which he didn’t play and was traded in December 2017. The Sixers gave Embiid plenty of help against a Pistons team that dropped to 7-29 on the road. The Sixers are on their longest winning streak since they closed the 2017-18 season with 16 straight victories.mlive.com
