Joel Embiid scored 24 points in his return to the lineup after a one-game absence, Ben Simmons and Furkan Korkmaz added 18 points apiece, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Detroit Pistons for the second time in four days, winning 116-102 Monday in Philadelphia.

Jimmy Butler, who had 38 points to lead Philadelphia to a 117-111 victory in Detroit on Friday, exited in the first half because of a strained groin and did not return.

Coach Brett Brown said postgame that he hadn't met with his medical staff for an update on Butler.

"I don't know the detail of it," Brown said, "nor do I know what's going to happen in relation to the longevity, how long he's going to sit out."

Luke Kennard finished with a career-high 28 points and Andre Drummond had 21 for the slumping Pistons, who have dropped five straight after five consecutive wins.

Detroit was missing Blake Griffin, 10th in the NBA in scoring. Griffin, who had 50, 38 and 31 points against the Sixers this season, was rested after Detroit hosted New Orleans the previous night.

Oklahoma City 122, Utah 113: Paul George went 5-for-6 on three-pointers and scored 31 points and the host Thunder beat the Jazz.

Boston 113, New Orleans 100: Marcus Morris had a season-high 31 points to lead a depleted Celtics lineup in Boston to its sixth consecutive victory.

Denver 105, Memphis 99: Nikola Jokic had 27 points and 12 rebounds, reserve Monte Morris tied a career high with 20 points and the Nuggets beat the Grizzlies in Denver.

Indiana 109, Washington 101: Myles Turner had a season-high 26 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks to help the host Pacers beat the Wizards, who were without All-Star John Wall (injured heel), for their season-best fourth consecutive victory.
