76ers beat first-place Heat without Joel Embiid, James Harden


The Philadelphia 76ers were without James Harden and Joel Embiid for a crucial game against the Miami Heat on Monday, but found a way to get a 113-106 win anyway.

Embiid is a favorite to win the 2022 NBA MVP Award, but he was ruled out of the game due to back soreness. Harden, who was acquired by Philadelphia in a February trade, was rested.

With the two stars out of action, Tyrese Maxey stepped up for the 76ers with a game-high 28 points, five rebounds and four assists.
