The Sixers were up to 14 points behind, missing almost every imaginable shot in the first half, and saw Joel Embiid grab his right leg and head into the locker room in the third quarter. We have seen this film before. But wait, change of plot! Joel Embiid returned to the bench and re-entered the game. He looked perfectly fine. Philadelphia took an 11-0 lead to lead the game into the fourth quarter. In the bowels of the game, the Sixers met Big Shot after Big Shot and eventually prevailed with 100-93. Bell ringer time!
Embiid was great at both ends of the court tonight, adding to the consistency « If Joel plays, the Sixers win ». The Sixers’ star center was a perfect 11-of-11 off the foul line in the first half, which was the only reason the game came anywhere near close. NBA. Com’s glossary entry for « efficient offense » is now a clip from Embiid performing the tear motion when the defender reaches into their airspace. On the track, Joel did the right readings and found his open teammates, none bigger than the climatic Seth Curry 3.
Defensively, Joel worked like a rim protector. One piece in particular defined how effective it can be. Embiid stepped forward to file an indictment and was quick to react when Anunoby turned to his husband behind him, Aron Baynes. Joel denied him perfectly on the edge and then hurried on to collect the subsequent offensive rebound. I’m incredibly happy to know that cramps or light hamstrings or whatever happened in the third weren’t that serious.
Great defensive game from Joel Embiid. He was ready to bring the charges against Anunoby, then immediately turned and blocked Aron Baynes’ attempt at dunking. picture. Twitter. com / 75EFJtwVdb
Speaking of great two-way gigs, nobody is complaining about Tobias Harris’ contract tonight (or at least very quietly to themselves). Tobi got off to a hot start and scored nine of the team’s first eleven points. Throughout the night Harris was determined to shoot immediately when he got the open gaze or to realize the wrong pump was the right game and duck for the open elbow sweater. And Tobias not only played offensively, but was also solid on the defensive. He went into the fast lane and stood between his man on the edge. Tobi’s biggest game arguably came when he split by himself in a quick 2 on 1 break in the last two minutes (which was probably a foul, but the effort was great). . Even three-quarters of what we’ve seen from Harris on a regular basis tonight would suit the Sixers well.
Here was the Seth Curry everyone had imagined after the night trade draft. A giant Dagger 3 was dumped out there to make a 5 point game by just over a minute ahead. Not only did the best curry have the biggest shot of the night, but it also keeps showing great moves in its capacity as a secondary creator. Curry flashed an absolutely gorgeous pass behind the back to find a cutting Simmons for a bucket. I have a feeling this will be the first of many great moments in Seth’s Sixer’s career.
Ben remains incredibly offensively frustrating. He often shies away from contact and tosses some kind of weak swimmer or barrels upside down into battle like Mike Alstott looking for ten feet and a cloud of dust only to be called in for an offensive foul. However, if Ben puts up defense equipment like this, I have to put him on the list.
