Sixers to meet Pelicans working on top seed

The surging Philadelphia 76ers will look to take one step closer to the top seed in the Eastern Conference as the playoffs approach.

The first-place Sixers (45-21) hold a two-game lead over the second-place Brooklyn Nets and will be in search of their seventh consecutive victory when they host the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday.

Philadelphia completed a three-game road trip by routing the depleted Houston Rockets 135-115 on Wednesday thanks in large part to Joel Embiid's 34 points and 12 rebounds.
