Joel Embiid, Furkan Korkmaz help 76ers beat Pelicans 117-97

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Joel Embiid and those members of the Philadelphia 76ers who made the trip to New Orleans for their regular-season opener looked unfazed by the absence of Ben Simmons and unaffected by the drama surrounding the disgruntled All-Star guard.

Embiid had 22 points and 12 rebounds, reserve Furkan Korkmaz hit four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to also score 22 points, and the 76ers pulled away for a 117-97 victory over the Pelicans on Wednesday night.

"We've been practicing hard," Embiid said, also noting that players who'd made the trip had enjoyed a team-bonding dinner in the city's historic Faubourg Marigny neighborhood a night earlier. "It was good to kind of get off to a good start, get a win and kind of forget about the off-the-court stuff."
