Sixers will have Joel Embiid back Sunday vs. Pacers

Report Embiid to return Sunday against Pacers

This gives them the tiebreaker if they finish with the same record as the Pacers (42-25) at the end of the regular season.

With the Sixers having gone just 4-4 in his absence and facing a huge game with playoff implications against the Pacers, they figured it was time for Embiid to return. While he has been held out of some games for rest, it seems like Embiid's history of injuries could finally be behind him, and the Sixers will need that if they want to have a chance in the playoffs.

Maybe next year if Embiid finds himself in a similar situation in regards to playing in the All-Star Game, the Sixers will think twice about having him play since the contest is simply entertainment, and this year is the flawless example of how annoying the aftermath can be.

Philly took a 72-70 lead into the fourth quarter and never looked back, with big buckets from Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris and James Ennis helping stretch their advantage to 90-77.

The Pacers' offensive struggles continued in the fourth, as thy scored just 19 points and failed to score 100 points for the second-straight game after going falling 117-98 to the Milwaukee Bucks Thursday.

Bojan Bogdanovic (18 points) and Darren Collison (14 points) stood out for the losing squad. Today they face a Pacers team that sits one game, directly ahead of them in the Eastern Conference standings, with 16 games left to play.
