The San Antonio Spurs and Philadelphia 76ers are both in search of consistency -- especially defensively -- when they square off Sunday evening in an interconference dustup in the Alamo City. The 76ers head to San Antonio after a 102-101 loss at home to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday in which Philadelphia squandered a 24-point second-half lead. Joel Embiid racked up 40 points, 13 rebounds in defeat, with Tobias Harris scoring 20 points and Tyrese Maxey adding 19 for the 76ers, who lost for just the third time since Dec. 26.
