For the 2nd time this season, Andre Drummond might not overcome Embiid as the hosts beat the Pistons 108-103 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
Blazing a trail for the 76ers was Embiid, as the 7′ 0 23-year old center from Yaounde, Cameroon had a group high 25 points while taking down 10 rebounds for a double-double.
Embiid made essential plays down the stretch to bring the 76ers the triumph, with a few of the most significant of the contest coming within a minute of each other with the center drawing the 6th and 5th fouls on Drummond.
Philadelphia continues to be among the most interesting young groups in all of the NBA, as the 76ers have actually won 7 of their last 10 video games and being in 5th location in the Eastern Conference..
Things do not get any simpler for Detroit, as the Pistons remain on the roadway and travel to Texas to handle the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night. The 76ers will invite the young Phoenix Suns to the Wells Fargo Center on Monday.
