Embiid single-handedly outscored the Hawks in the fourth quarter to propel the Sixers to a 129-112 win.
“I said it right before All-Star break that I was going to have a different mindset and it wasn’t just about tonight. Since the Clippers game, I’ve had the mindset of just being aggressive just trying to dominate offensively and defensively,” Embiid said. ”
When Embiid plays like he did against the Hawks on Monday night the Sixers are extremely tough to topple. Moving forward until Simmons returns – and even after he’s back – they need Embiid to continue to be aggressive and assert himself from the opening tip, and they need the players around him to step up, like Tobias Harris did on Monday night.
