76ers seek to solidify hold on East vs. Pistons

The Philadelphia 76ers will look to move one step closer to securing the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race when they host the Detroit Pistons on Saturday.

The Sixers held off the shorthanded New Orleans Pelicans 109-107 on Friday and moved three games ahead of the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks. The Sixers have five games remaining.

Joel Embiid had been questionable with a sore shoulder but produced 37 points and 13 rebounds in the narrow win over the Pelicans. The Sixers (46-21) will now aim for their eighth consecutive victory.
