In the matchup between the two best teams, the Philadelphia 76ers have the advantage over the Denver Nuggets. The 76ers could rely on their superstar Joel Embiid again.
The Philadelphia 76ers have won the most important game in the North American professional league NBA against the Denver Nuggets. On Saturday (01/28/2023) the 76ers celebrated a 126:119 victory against the Denver Nuggets.
The guests from Denver, with Nikola Jokic, had been in the lead until the last quarter. But then Philadelphia was able to rely on Joel Embiid, who ended up leading the game with 47 points. With seven straight points, Embiid turned the game into a 115:110 lead for the hosts with less than five minutes to go. A trio from the superstar 30 seconds before the end meant an eight-point lead and therefore the preliminary decision.
As a result of the success, the 76ers now have a record of 32:16 and are further behind Boston in second place in the Eastern Conference. Despite the loss, Denver is still the best team in the west with 34:16 wins.
