Surging Sixers set for 2-game set vs. slumping Pistons

Thanks to Joel Embiid, the Philadelphia 76ers collected back-to-back victories against one of their main Eastern Conference rivals. They now get a chance to fatten their record with a two-game set against the NBA's worst team.

Following home victories over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday and Friday, Philadelphia travels to Detroit to play the Pistons on Saturday and Monday.

Embiid powered for 42 points and 10 rebounds in the first game against the Celtics, then put up 38 points and 11 rebounds in 30 minutes during Friday's victory. He shot 11 of 15 from the field Friday and made all but one of his 15 free-throw attempts in the 76ers' 122-110 win.
