Embiid scores 24 in uniform No. 24 for Bryant in 76ers' win over Dubs

By  | 

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Joel Embiid scored 24 points in his first game in three weeks, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 115-104 win over the Golden State Warriors. Embiid wore No. 24 instead of his usual No. 21 in honor of Kobe Bryant. Bryant was killed Sunday in a helicopter crash. Embiid asked for permission from Hall of Famer Bobby Jones to wear the retired No. 24. Embiid also had 10 rebounds in his first game since he suffered a torn ligament in a finger in his left hand. D'Ángelo Russell led Golden State with 28 points.
