PHILADELPHIA -- Joel Embiid took some inspiration from a 76ers great.Embiid scored 17 of his career-high 33 points in the third quarter and hit a pair of crucial free throws with 12.5 seconds left to lead the Philadelphia 76ers over the Brooklyn Nets 108-107 on Sunday night in a matchup of two of the leagues worst teams.Embiid added 10 rebounds and also dived over the first row in an effort to save a loose ball, a hustle play that thrilled Philadelphias gritty fans. A leading Rookie of the Year candidate, Embiid said plays like that are modeled after Hall of Famer Allen Iverson, who the 76ers honored during Friday nights game against the Lakers.A.I. kind of helped me with that, Embiid said. It was like, `Play like its your last game. Thats what I think Ive been doing. Im sorry for that person. I think I stepped on his shoulder. Im sorry, but Im going to give my all every time Im on the court.Embiid was 12 for 17 from the field, including 2 for 3 from beyond the arc, and 7 for 8 from the free-throw line.He wanted to dominate the game, Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said.Ersan Ilyasova had 22 points for the 76ers, who snapped an eight-game home losing streak while winning for the third time in 13 games.Brook Lopez had 22 points, nine rebounds and eight assists for the Nets, who lost their ninth in a row on the road.We just couldnt get over the hump, Lopez said. I dont know if theres that much analysis to it.The Sixers (7-20) and Nets (7-19) are tied with Dallas and Minnesota for the fewest wins in the league.Philadelphia scored the first 11 points of the fourth quarter to take its largest lead, 94-86, with 9:09 remaining on Ilyasovas long jumper. Embiid, restricted to 28 minutes by the team, went to the bench at the tail end of the run. He re-entered with 4 1/2 minutes left and Philadelphia clinging to a 97-96 lead.Lopezs drive gave the Nets a 98-97 lead before Embiids 3-pointer from atop the key ended a nearly five-minute field goal drought and put Philadelphia in front 100-98 with 2:43 left.Lin later stripped Embiid with the Nets down by one, but Brooklyn failed on two attempts to go ahead -- Trevor Booker missed a 3-pointer and Sean Kilpatrick misfired on a short jumper.Embiid got the rebound, was fouled and made both free throws with 12.5 seconds left to give the 76ers a 104-101 lead. Lins tying 3-point attempt went off the rim.Lin, playing in his eighth game of an injury-riddled season, had 16 points.Joe Harris tied his career high with 19 points for the Nets.I like our competitive spirit, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. Thats been us all year. Were a team that fights and competes. Down the road, I think its going to pay off, that attitude and grit.EMBIID, OKAFOR STARTEmbiid and Jahlil Okafor started alongside each other for the third straight game. After saying Saturday that incorporating three big men -- Embiid, Okafor and Nerlens Noel -- into the lineup together would be an extreme challenge, Brown said before Sundays game that Noel only would play if Embiid or Okafor got in foul trouble.Okafor went 0 for 10 from the field with three points but had 11 rebounds.NOEL BENCHEDNoel complained about the crowded situation following Fridays 100-89 loss to the Lakers in which he scored two points in eight minutes.I think Im too good to be playing eight minutes, he said. Thats crazy. They need to figure this (stuff) out.Browns solution was to bench a healthy Noel, who missed the first 23 games while recovering from offseason knee surgery.He hasnt been part of us, Brown said. I dont believe at this moment (playing Noel) is best for our team.In his 2 1/2-year career, Noel has averaged 10.4 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 29.8 minutes per game. He didnt appear at all against the Nets.TIP-INSNets: Lopez played in his 511th game with the Nets, moving into fourth on the franchises career list. ... Brooklyn is 1-12 on the road this season.76ers: Nik Stauskas (left knee soreness) didnt play. ...

Youve heard it all: the stories of Chicago Cubs fans who have been waiting their entire lives to see a title. But if you arent from Chicago, its hard to get a grasp on how not winning it all has affected these people and how the dream of one day winning it, which could be realized Wednesday night, consumes them.All it takes is a stroll around Wrigley Field to see their very short stories, and prayers, written on dedication bricks, which the Cubs started selling in 2006. After renovations at Wrigley, when many such bricks wound up in a landfill, the Cubs redid them this year and placed most of them behind the bleachers on Sheffield Avenue.4 GENERATIONS OF SUFFERING RALPH PEARMANRalph Pearmans father, Ralph Sr., went to the 1907 World Series with his father, Frank. The following year, Ralph Sr. asked his father if he could take him again, to which his father famously replied, Dont worry, the Cubs play in the World Series every year.Those, of course, turned into some fateful words, as the Cubs won in 1908 and never again.The love of the Cubs was passed down from Frank to Ralph Sr. and eventually to Ralph Jr., who became a judge in Paris, Illinois, about 185 miles south of Wrigley Field. The attachment was further fostered by the Cubs having a minor league team in the town.Still burned by the moment in 1908, Ralph Jr.s father wanted to take him to the 1945 World Series, the Cubs most recent Fall Classic before 2016, butt young Ralph was laid up in a back brace after hurting himself playing sports.ddddddddddddRalph Pearman Jr. said hes a real Cubs fan and watches every game. His son John (and Johns siblings) bought his father the brick as a Christmas present. Hes a man of few words, but whatever he says is really impactful, John said.Reached Wednesday, Ralph Jr., now 87, said he was really nervous, saying that the brick is an accurate portrayal of my sentiment.John notes that there are now five generations of suffering Pearmans, thanks to Ralph Jr.s grandchildren, but they havent suffered for that long.WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR - ED GUINAN FAN SINCE 1926As has been chronicled plenty, the Cubs have had a long history of not winning title, stretching back to 1908. Not all fans could out live the drought, as was the case with Ed Guinan, born in 1926, who died in the summer of 2009.PETER MASSON IN HEAVEN AND STILL WAITINGPeter Masson, a World War II Navy veteran, loved his Cubs. He died July 21, 2004, at the age of 86.WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT 40 YEARS! JV - 11/11/66We dont know who JV is, but its a safe assumption that the 40 years since 1966 came from the fact that most of the bricks were ordered in 2006. If the Cubs do win it all on Wednesday night, it will be nine days short of 50 years from the date on the brick.
