Embiid scores 47 as 76ers beat Jokic, Nuggets 126-119

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Joel Embiid won the battle of MVP candidates with 47 points and 18 rebounds as the Philadelphia 76ers extended their winning streak to seven games with a 126-119 win over Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets on Saturday.

Jokic and Embiid have finished first and second in voting for the NBA's Most Valuable Player award over the last two seasons. Both are among the top candidates for MVP as this season hits the halfway mark, although Embiid was not named among the All-Star starters from the Eastern Conference.

"I'm used to it and it's not the first time," Embiid said. "I think it's more of a motivation to go out there and try to win the whole thing. That's the only way that I'll get that respect."
