Sixers vs. Heat; Score, highlights, updates, news

Both the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat are reporting for Christmas duty at 100 percent.

The Sixers will travel to Miami without the NBA's leading scorer, Joel Embiid, while the Heat will be missing leader Jimmy Butler. Nicolas Badum, Josh Richardson and Haywood Highsmith have also been dropped.

It's not quite the matchup the NBA was looking for when it slotted two of the Eastern Conference's best teams into a prime-time slot, but there's still plenty at stake with the Sixers sitting in third place in the East.

In earlier action, the New York Knicks defeated the Milwaukee Bucks, the Denver Nuggets steamrolled the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics steamrolled the Los Angeles Lakers.
