Embiid scores 28 in return as 76ers top Timberwolves in OT

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Joel Embiid was a spectator for two games, and that was long enough for the Philadelphia big man to get antsy.

Embiid scored 28 points in his return to the lineup and the 76ers topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 118-112 in overtime Tuesday night to stop a four-game losing streak.

"We needed this," Embiid said. "My goal is to always bring back a lot of energy. Obviously use my skills, but a lot of it is just playing hard."
