Philadelphia- Joel Embiid had 32 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists after an apparent injury scare in the first half, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Orlando Magic, 125-113, on Friday in a key matchup for playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.

Tyrese Maxey had 28 points and Kelly Oubre Jr. added 21 in Philadelphia’s seventh consecutive victory (46-35).

Orlando, Indiana and Philadelphia are with identical 46-35 records after the Pacers lost 129-120 to the Cleveland Cavaliers. They are tied for fifth, sixth and seventh respectively in the conference.
