PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joel Embiid stretched his balky back each time he had a moment’s rest.

Those vital health breaks were fleeting — Embiid gutted out nearly 40 minutes, showing again that the days of the All-Star center missing seasons and stretches of games with injuries have become a faded memory.

Embiid had 33 points and 19 rebounds, and the Philadelphia 76ers used a pair of four-point plays in the fourth quarter to beat the San Antonio Spurs 122-120 on Wednesday night.
