TORONTO – – Tobias Harris had 19 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists for his first career triple-double, Joel Embiid finished with 36 points and 11 rebounds, and the Philadelphia 76ers hung on to beat the Toronto Raptors 114-109 on Tuesday night. “They’d be tired under normal circumstances, but under these circumstances, they were pretty gassed, I would imagine.”

After Toronto took a 78-76 lead on Svi Mykhailiuk’s 3-pointer with 2:02 left in the third, the 76ers responded with a 19-5 run, including a 10-2 spurt to begin the fourth that was fueled by eight straight points from Niang.

The Raptors battled back, and Trent hit a 3-pointer with 1:41 remaining to put Toronto up 107-106.

Harris answered with a pair of free throws, Siakam scored for Toronto, and Embiid replied with 51 seconds left to restore Philadelphia’s one-point lead.

Harris was fouled after grabbing the rebound on Trent’s miss with 21 seconds left, and made two more from the line to put the Sixers up 112-109.

Embiid scored 15 points in the third but Boucher shot 3 for 3 from 3-point range as Toronto closed the gap.
