MANILA, Philippines – The Philadelphia 76ers snapped a two-game skid by beating the struggling Los Angeles Clippers, 109-105, on Monday night at Staples Center.
Joel Embiid led the way for Philadelphia with 32 points on 11 for 20 field goal shooting. Embiid also finished with 16 rebounds, 2 assists and a blocked shot.
Wingman Robert Covington contributed 31 points, 6 boards, 4 dimes, and 4 steals. Rookie Ben Simmons added 22 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists as Philadelphia improved to 7-6
The 76ers were still without 2017 top overall rookie draft pick Markelle Fultz, Jerry Bayless, and Nik Stauskas due to injuries, while Jahlil Okafor was also out due to a respiratory infection.

Clippers starters Milos Teodosic, Patrick Beverly, and Danilo Gallinari were inactive due to injuries. The Clippers dropped to 5-8.
