Curry, Embiid help 76ers top Magic, clinch top seed in East

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Joel Embiid and the 76ers are happy to have earned home-court advantage for the playoffs - but they are a long way from their goal.

Seth Curry scored 20 points, Embiid had 13 points and 11 rebounds and Philadelphia clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a 122-97 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.

Ben Simmons added 13 points and nine assists to help the 76ers improve to 48-23. Philadelphia could've clinched earlier this week, but lost at Indiana on Tuesday and at Miami on Thursday. Embiid didn't play against the Pacers due to illness and logged just 25 minutes against the Heat while still looking sluggish.
