The visitors finally turned the game around with 42 seconds left after Embiid's three-pointer. “When you find something that works for you, you try to stick with it. We found out in the fourth quarter what the opponent is like. We made a couple of defenses, got through and the game started going well for us,” said Harden, who dominated his teammates last quarter 48:31. During it, the Sixers hit 12 of 21 shots and 17 of 19 sixes.
The Bucks were riding the longest winning streak since last year's Phoenix, which managed 18 wins. Milwaukee leader Janis Adetokunbo had 34 points and 13 rebounds, but also seven turnovers. After a scoreless first half, Grayson Allen made six 3-pointers in the first nine minutes of the second half to score 20 points. Despite the defeat, Milwaukee maintained the lead in the Eastern Conference.
Miami held Atlanta's Trae Young to just eight points, which was part of the reason the Hawks were beaten 117-109. The star point guard hit just two of 13 shots and eight points was his season low. Substitute Saddiq Bey, the author of 22 points, tried to take over his role. Vít Krejčí did not get into the game again. Pivot Bam Adebayo led the winners with 30 points and 11 rebounds.
Drama with a happy ending for the guests took place in Washington, where the Wizards lost to Toronto after overtime 109-116. Both teams had a chance to decide at 105:105 at the end of the fourth quarter, but neither Fred VanVleet nor horn-shooting home star Bradley Beal failed to convert.
Substitute Gary Trent led the Raptors to the win with 26 points, VanVleet collected 25 points and 10 assists. Kristaps Porzingis' 22 points and 11 rebounds or Beal's 21 points and 10 assists were not enough for the home team. Another shootout was seen in Sacramento, the home team lost to Minnesota 134:138.
Cleveland – Detroit 114:90, Miami – Atlanta 117:109, Milwaukee – Philadelphia 130 :133, Sacramento – Minnesota 134:138, San Antonio – Houston 110:122, Washington – Toronto 109:116 overtime
