Embiid, who finished the match with a season-high 42 points and 18 rebounds, hit a game-tying three-pointer with 34.4 seconds left in the fourth quarter and was 14 from 16 from the free throw line across the last period and overtime to keep Charlotte at bay. He has earned the confidence of the Sixers to aggressively seek out shots there. "I pretty much knew it was going in", LeVert said.

Embiid was 1 for 2 from 3 - but it was a critical one that tied the game at 117 in the final minute of regulation. "Tried to beat him to spots".

Philadelphia won their last game against the Indiana Pacers, 100 - 94; Simmons: 16 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists.

The 76ers rank well in defensive rebounds per game (#3), assists per game (#5) and free throw percentage (#11).

In Salt Lake City, Joe Ingles matched his career high with 27 points and added a season-high seven assists to help Utah beat Boston in Gordon Hayward's return to Utah. Hayward then suffered a fractured ankle injury in the Celtics' season opener past year and did not play the remainder of the season.

Donovan Mitchell had 21 points, former Celtics forward Jae Crowder scored 20 points and Ricky Rubio added 17, as the Jazz won consecutive games after losing four in a row.

Poor defensive efforts have resulted in a 25-point blowout loss to the Brooklyn Nets this past Sunday, a 17-point loss in Toronto on October 30, and of course the 18-point loss to the Celtics to open the season.

Augustin had six points, an assist and a steal after Washington cut a 25-point deficit to one at 106-105 with 2:30 remaining.

Andre Drummond had 23 points and 11 rebounds to lead the way as Detroit jumped to a 24-point lead late in the first quarter and coasted to a victory over host Atlanta. Washington fell to 2-9. Chandler has played a season-high 14 minutes Wednesday against Indiana. Bacon, who fouled out in overtime, scored 15 points in only his fifth game of the season. Drummond's double-double was the 300th of his career, most in the league since his rookie season of 2012-13.

Nuggets center Nikola Jokic had 37 points and 21 rebounds in a 112-110 loss to the Nets. Philadelphia is 19th in the National Basketball Association in points allowed to opponents, and while Walker is certainly capable of reaching nine points in the first quarter, it's not that likely.

The Nets overcame a big bounce-back night from Denver's Nikola Jokic to win their third straight. Bridges then missed an open 3 with 13 seconds left.

Hornets: The Hornets ran into foul trouble late in the game.

Iman Shumpert scored 17 points, De'Aaron Fox had 16 points and 10 assists and Buddy Hield added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings.
