PHILADELPHIA | Embiid, 76ers top Pelicans after Davis’ missed free throw
PHILADELPHIA — Joel Embiid had 31 points and 19 rebounds, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the New Orleans Pelicans 121-120 on Wednesday night after Anthony Davis missed the third of three free throws with 2.5 seconds left.
The 76ers are 10-0 at home this season. They looked in control, up nine points with just under 2 ½ minutes to play, before a late surge by the Pelicans.
Embiid fouled Davis on a 3-point attempt, and Davis calmly swished the first two free throws before the third one went in and out.
