PHILADELPHIA — Chris Paul scored 28 points, Devin Booker had 19 and Mikal Bridges 18 to lead the Phoenix Suns to a 116-113 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. 

Joel Embiid had 38 points and 17 rebounds. He heaved a fullcourt shot at the horn that rattled around the rim and put the All-Star center on his back in disbelief over the near-make. 

The Sixers again played without starters Ben Simmons because of an unspecified illness and Tobias Harris with a sore right knee.

Philadelphia will head to Milwaukee to face the Bucks tonight at 7:00 p.m.
