Sixers hold off feisty, shorthanded Lakers in shootout

James Harden and Joel Embiid returned to the lineup Wednesday night, as the Sixers started their West Coast trip by knocking off the Los Angeles Lakers, 126-121. Despite looking like the better team for nearly the whole game, the Sixers let the Lakers hang around all evening. Embiid had yet another 30-point game, along with 10 rebounds, three steals and three blocks on 61.8 percent true shooting. Harden got off to a slow start but finished with 24-7-7. Tyrese Maxey continued to be an efficient dynamo, giving the Sixers 21 points on 70.6 percent true shooting.
