The Clippers' Nicolas Batum finished with 15 points, seven rebounds, and a crucial steal late in the game, according to the stats.

As part of an eight-game, 13-day journey that began on Monday, Los Angeles earned its second victory in as many games in its past five contests.

Embiid scored 40 points, grabbed 13 rebounds, and dished out six assists on Wednesday night, tying his career-high of 50 points.

With a three-point lead, the Clippers allowed Embiid to drive in for a simple layup.

After a seven-point first-quarter disadvantage, Embiid rocketed past Isaiah Hartenstein for a two-handed slam that seemed too easy, helping the Sixers transform a 54-40 halftime deficit into a 54-point halftime advantage.

With 7:39 remaining in the third quarter, Harris sank a pair of free throws to push Philadelphia's lead to 68-44.
