  • Embiid shakes off sprained hand, leads Sixers to win over Spurs

Leonard scored 25 points in his first action of the season in a 100-91 win at NY on Tuesday. Gay has missed the last two games and Green didn't play on Tuesday.

SAN ANTONIO - Kawhi Leonard and Manu Ginobili each scored 21 points and San Antonio beat Phoenix for its ninth straight win at home over the Suns.

Coach Brett Brown had all but ruled out Embiid before the game. As for whether Embiid will be good enough to go for Friday's game against the Detroit Pistons, only time will tell, but obviously Philadelphia would love to see him suit up if possible since his performance against San Antonio continues to show how much of a difference this team is when he's healthy enough to be in the lineup.

A 15-0 scoring run for the hosts ensued and the 76ers led by 25 points at the end of the first quarter.

There are no betting lines established for this game due to Embiid's status as doubtful and because Leonard is unlikely to play on back-to-back nights. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.5 rebounds per game.

The Spurs, though, have not fared well for bettors versus Philadelphia, failing to cover in four of the last five overall meetings and 12 of their last 17 trips to the City of Brotherly Love. The 76ers are also 5-12-1 against the spread in their previous 18 games. It is the most he has done since he was shut down four games into the season because of a shoulder injury. That makes Aldridge and Gasol the swing votes for San Antonio in this game.

The 76ers are one spot outside the playoff cut-off, while the Spurs sit third in the Western conference. Coming back with a winning record from a long road trip is another step in the right direction for this team's maturity.

The Philadelphia 76ers have continued to stay on the path of maintaining a precautionary approach with rising star center Joel Embiid.

The Spurs' 12-game winning streak over Philadelphia dates back to the Sixers' 77-71 victory on February 11, 2011. Tip-off time is 7 pm EST.
