This defeat allows the dolphin Phoenix, winner of Houston (126-120), to get closer slightly.

Embiid teaches the lesson

When Joel Embiid goes, everything usually goes for Philadelphia.

In Dallas, the pivot, serious contender for the title of MVP, dominated the debates to offer victory to his family (115-93).

The Cameroonian managed 36 points (10/17 on shots, 7 rebounds in 26 minutes) decisive in the success of the 76ers who have always been ahead in the score.

The Mavs, without Kristaps Porzingis at rest, could count on Luka Doncic (32 pts), but the Slovenian prodigy was too lonely.
