PHILADELPHIA -- Ben Simmons hit his second career 3-pointer and scored a career-high 34 points, and the Philadelphia 76ers didn't need Joel Embiid's help to rout the Cleveland Cavaliers 141-94 Saturday night.
Simmons made 12 of 14 field goals, including his only 3-point attempt, and hit 9 of 12 free throws to help Philadelphia improve to 11-0 at home.
Embiid sat out with a left hip contusion.
Darius Garland had 17 points for the Cavaliers, who have lost six in a row and 12 of 13.
Philadelphia has been projected to be an NBA title contender, but the 76ers haven't been able to consistently field its starting five of Simmons, Embiid, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris and Al Horford.
