Maxey, Harris combine for 64 points in 76ers 121-114 win over Hornets

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tobias Harris had 31 points and 12 rebounds and Tyrese Maxey scored 33 points to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 121-114 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night.

The 76ers won for only the second time in six games but remain in the hunt for a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference as they try and stay afloat in the standings until the hopeful return of last season's MVP Joel Embiid. They are 8-17 this season without Embiid and 5-8 since he went down in a Jan. 30 game and eventually needed knee surgery.
