(Associated Press) - November 14, 2017 - 7:08am

LOS ANGELES — Joel Embiid scored 32 points, Robert Covington added 31 and the Philadelphia 76ers outlasted the Clippers 109-105 on Monday night (Tuesday Manila time) to hand Los Angeles its sixth consecutive loss.

Ben Simmons had 22 points and 12 rebounds for Philadelphia. Embiid grabbed a game-high 16 boards.

Lou Williams led Los Angeles (5-8) with 31 points off the bench, and Blake Griffin had 29. The Clippers started the season 4-0 but have lost eight of nine.

Philadelphia trailed 101-100 when Covington hit his fifth 3-pointer to give the Sixers (7-6) the lead for good with 33 seconds remaining.

The 76ers outrebounded the Clippers 51-34 to snap a two-game skid.

Powered by Embiid's 19 points and seven rebounds, the Sixers threatened to make the game a rout early, going up by 14 in the second quarter.

The Clippers were getting pushed around and seemed a step slow until Griffin gave them a lift with 16 points in the second. Los Angeles closed to 55-53 at halftime.
