Embiid, 76ers top Pelicans after Davis' missed free throw

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Joel Embiid is on a mission to win the MVP and Defensive Player of the Year awards. If he keeps up this pace, he'll make it easy on voters.

Embiid had 31 points and 19 rebounds, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the New Orleans Pelicans 121-120 on Wednesday night after Anthony Davis missed the third of three free throws with 2.5 seconds left.

Embiid reached at least 30 points and 15 rebounds for the 12th time this season. He was serenaded frequently with loud chants of "M-V-P! M-V-P!" from the raucous home crowd.
