MILWAUKEE (AP) — Joel Embiid had 42 points, 14 rebounds and five assists and the Philadelphia 76ers regrouped after squandering a 15-point lead to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 123-120 on Thursday night. Embiid put the 76ers ahead for good at 117-116 with a 10-footer with 2:32 left.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 32 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists for the Bucks.
Philadelphia played without James Harden, who hasn’t made his 76ers debut since coming over in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets last week.
The 10-time All-Star and 2018 MVP hasn’t played since Feb. 2 due to an injured left hamstring.
