Maxey Scores 28 As 76ers, Without Harden, Embiid, Beat Heat

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tyrese Maxey scored 13 of his game-high 28 points in the fourth quarter, including nine in a row during a crucial stretch, and the short-handed Philadelphia 76ers — without stars Joel Embiid and James Harden — beat the Eastern Conference-leading Miami Heat 113-106 on Monday night.

Shake Milton scored 20 points and Furkan Korkmaz added 18 for Philadelphia, which pulled within 2½ games of the Heat in the conference. Embiid sat out with back soreness and Harden with left hamstring tightness.


Jimmy Butler scored 27, Bam Adebayo had 22 and Kyle Lowry 20 for Miami, which lost for just the fifth time in the last 20 games.
