Curry had 41 points, six rebounds and four assists for the Warriors, while Kelly Oubre Jr contributed 19 points and James Wiseman had 13 points and 10 rebounds.
The win lifts GWS to 24-27 after a recent slump, having lost seven of their previous nine coming in, including a record 53-point hiding from the Toronto Raptors.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was absent for the Bucks due to a knee soreness.
Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said: “He was warming up tonight and just felt it a little bit. Just made the decision that tonight was not a good night, it was a night he should be out.”
Khris Middleton managed 28 points and seven assists in Giannis’ absence, while Jrue Halliday scored 29 points as the Bucks slipped to 32-18 but they remain third in the East.
Embiid scored 35 points and had six rebounds for the 76ers who return to top in the East, while Jayson Tatum scored 20 for the Celtics.
LA’s Montrezl Harrell and Toronto’s OG Anunoby were both ejected out of the game after an altercation also involving Dennis Schroder.
