New York Daily News - - SPORTS -

Joel Em­biid notched 37 points and 14 re­bounds, To­bias Har­ris scored 22 points in his sec­ond game with Philadel­phia, and the new-look 76ers beat LeBron James and the Lak­ers, 143-120, on Sun­day.

JJ Redick added 21 points for the Six­ers, who have won two straight af­ter ac­quir­ing Har­ris and four oth­ers at Thurs­day’s trade dead­line. Jimmy But­ler fin­ished with 15 points in front of a packed Philly crowd that brought a play­off-like feel to the na­tion­ally tele­vised game.

“The East bet­ter watch out,” Lak­ers pres­i­dent Magic John­son said. “This is a stacked team.”

Kyle Kuzma led the Lak­ers with 39 points while James to­taled 18 points, 10 re­bounds and nine as­sists.

DUCKS FIRE COACH

Ana­heim Ducks gen­eral man­ager Bob Murray tried to give Randy Car­lyle as much time as pos­si­ble to turn things around. But a seven-game los­ing streak and freefall into last place in the West­ern Con­fer­ence showed Murray that a turn­around wasn’t com­ing soon.

Murray an­nounced that he would take over as in­terim coach for the re­main­der of the reg­u­lar sea­son af­ter fir­ing Car­lyle on Sun­day. Ana­heim will hire a new coach fol­low­ing the sea­son.

“What has hap­pened here lately and how we have played, it was time for change,” Murray said dur­ing a con­fer­ence call. “Some people thought I waited far too long, but this team has a his­tory of com­ing on and charg­ing late. I re­al­ized it wasn’t go­ing to hap­pen a few days ago.”

Af­ter no fir­ings last year, the Ducks are the sixth team to make a change this sea­son, join­ing Los An­ge­les, Chicago, St. Louis, Ed­mon­ton and Philadel­phia.

BOISE ST. FROSH BOOKED

A Boise State Uni­ver­sity fresh­man guard has been ar­rested and charged with two mis­de­meanors af­ter fight­ing with a bar em­ployee who asked him to leave be­cause he’s un­der­age, po­lice said.

Jayc­son Be­real, 19, was booked early Sun­day and charged with bat­tery and a loi­ter­ing-re­lated charge, ac­cord­ing to on­line ar­rest records from the Ada County Sher­iff’s Of­fice.

Be­real was in a 21-and-over bar, ac­cord­ing to a Boise po­lice ar­rest re­port, and “when an em­ployee at the busi­ness found out the sus­pect’s age, the sus­pect was asked to leave and the sus­pect be­gan phys­i­cally fight­ing with the em­ployee.”
