But at the end of the third quarter, Philadelphia came back to 99-85, then ended up equalizing at 108-108 6’05 from the buzzer.

However, the 76ers failed to take the lead until a three-point shot from Joel Embiid (31pts, 6rbds, 10pds) 42 seconds from the end. which allowed them to lead 127-125. Free throws from Tyrese Maxey (26pts), James Harden (38pts, 9rbds, 10pds) and Joel Embiid then made the difference for Philadelphia, which won this victory in the snatch. Despite a Giannis Antetokounmpo to 34 points and 13 rebounds, Milwaukee must bow. Still in the East, Cleveland (4th) quietly disposed of the bottom Detroit (114-90), Miami (7th) signed an important victory against Atlanta (8th) for direct qualification in the play-offs (117-109, with 30pts from Bam Adebayo), while Toronto (9th) won 109-116 after extra time in Washington (10th).

Minnesota rules over California

In the West, the only poster of the night opposed Sacramento to Minnesota, and after winning at the Clippers and the Lakers, the Timberwolves continued their Californian road trip with a 134-138 victory in the capital of State. If the final gap is tight, the Minneapolis players nevertheless dominated this match almost from start to finish (the Kings only led by a few points in the first quarter) and even had a 17-point lead in the middle of the third quarter. They scared each other a little, but Anthony Edwards (27pts, 8pds) finally won his duel with Domantas Sabonis (24pts, 14rbds).
