The surging Sixers “are on the war path to get home-court advantage” in their first trip to the postseason since 2012.
“We are on the war path to get home-court advantage,” coach Brett Brown said.
Joel Embiid added 14 points and Ben Simmons had 13 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for the 76ers (40-30), who won their fourth straight to improve to a season-best 10 games over .500. None of the starters played in the fourth quarter.
“We’re moving up,” Embiid said. “Our goal is home-court advantage.”
