The Suns (61-14) have little to play for, beyond staying sharp, having already secured the top seed throughout the entire playoffs. Meanwhile, the Sixers are in perhaps the tightest Eastern Conference race in history — at least, in recent memory.

As it stands, Philadelphia (46-28) is tied for second in the East with the Bucks, with each just a half-game behind the Celtics and Heat.

Joel Embiid led the Sixers with game-highs of 37 points and 15 rebounds. Tyrese Maxey added 18 points, Tobias Harris scored 17 and James Harden had 14.

Phoenix also received 14 points and 12 boards from Deandre Ayton. The Suns have won eight in a row.
