106-89. Embiid returns and the Sixers win the duel with the Pacers

Philadelphia (USA) .- The Cameroonian center Joel Embiid registered double-double of 33 points and 12 rebounds to direct the attack of the Philadelphia Sixers, who won 106-89 to the Indiana Pacers.

For Embiid it was his first game in almost a month when he returned to the lineup after being injured in his left knee.
Embiid had not played since he was on the court for 23 minutes in the All-Star Game on February 17.

The Sixers were 4-4 without their star center in their battle for one of the four best places in the Eastern Conference.

The Sixers (42-25) with their sixth win in the last 10 games amount to third place in the Eastern Conference, while the Pacers (42-25), who started the third day in that group, fell to fourth place.

Forwards Tobias Harris scored 16 points and Australian point guard Ben Simmons scored 15 points for the Philadelphia team.

The Pacers had as leader of their attack the Croatian forward Bojan Bogdanovic, who scored 18 points, but they were not enough to avoid the defeat.

Base Darren Collison scored 14 points and reserve forward Doug McDermott scored 10 points for the Indiana team. (EFE)
