Shamet, Embiid lead 76ers to 132-115 rout of Wizards

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Philadelphia rookie Landry Shamet was putting on such a stellar shooting display that Joel Embiid took a seat in the second row to watch it with the rest of the 76ers fans.

Shamet made eight 3-pointers and scored 29 points, both career-highs, and Embiid had 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead the 76ers to a 132-115 rout of the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night.

''He was hot,'' Embiid said.

The Philadelphia big man put his hand to Shamet's forehead, as if to take his temperature, while on the court. With the 76ers up big in the second half, Embiid retreated to the second row and put a young 76ers fan on his lap to watch part of the show.

''It was amazing,'' Embiid said of his view.

Jimmy Butler added 20 points and Ben Simmons had 19 points, nine assists and five rebounds for the 76ers, who won their fourth straight and for the seventh time in nine games.

''We're good right now,'' Simmons said. ''We're on the right track to where we want to be.''

Bradley Beal scored 28 points for the Wizards.

Philadelphia improved to an NBA-best 18-3 at home.

Embiid, Simmons and Butler rested for most of the second half.

Shamet took a leading role with sharpshooter JJ Redick (back) sidelined for the first time this season.

''He more than replaced JJ,'' Embiid said.

Shamet, who entered averaging 7.7 points and 38.5 percent from the arc, said he didn't do anything differently.

''It felt like another game,'' he said. ''I came out shooing and these guys told me to keep shooting.''

The 76ers trailed by as many as eight points early, but pulled away with a strong second quarter that continued their home dominance over Washington. The 76ers have defeated the Wizards in six straight in Philadelphia. The Sixers shot 57 percent from the field in the period while outscoring the Wizards by 20 points to take a 68-45 advantage at the break. Butler's alley-oop tip of T.J. McConnell's pass early in the second quarter was one of many first-half highlights for Philadelphia.

''We couldn't get any stops and we couldn't score,'' Washington coach Scott Brooks said of the second quarter. ''We fell apart.''

The halftime score was nearly identical to the first matchup between the teams this season when the 76ers had a 68-46 advantage on their way to a 123-98 home victory on Nov. 30.

LET'S PLAY TWO

The contest was the first game of a rare consecutive-day, home-and-home. The teams will meet Wednesday night in Washington, where the Wizards have won eight in a row over the 76ers. Philadelphia's last win in Washington came Nov. 1, 2013.

BUTLER'S BACK

Butler returned after missing the last two games with an upper respiratory infection. And the four-time All-Star was back on the court for the first time since a report said that Butler was displeased with how he's being used in Brett Brown's offense and let the coach know in a film session exchange that was reportedly ''disrespectful.'' Brown and Butler denied the report.

Brown acknowledged that he is working on making some subtle changes to the offense to accommodate Butler. And Butler was on target Tuesday night, making his first six shots before finishing 8 for 9 from the field.
