Sixers have two different teams: one for Joel Embiid, one for Al Horford

USA Today


Article Summary:

As the season gets set to resume, the Sixers will now have yet another chance to see what the big man duo of Horford and Embiid can do on the floor together. “I’m going to go into the three weeks and figure it out. I think that it’s true that we have learned a lot of some of the things that either don’t work and you really in your head and heart feel like ‘I don’t care how much time we have, that’s probably going to be tough to pull off’ versus, ‘we need to do a little bit better I need to do a little bit better.'”

When it comes to Embiid and Horford, specifically, the two of them have an offensive rating of only 101.1 which is in the fifth percentile per Cleaning the Glass. “It’s easier to truly believe that when you have Ben’s health at a stage that it is, but yes I do and I feel like I’m going to Orlando certainly mindful of all the things that are really going on in the world and the health climate that we’re in and amongst that, an excitement to restart, to reload a team that I think we have as good a chance as any [team].”

Philadelphia brought Horford in an effort to team him up with Embiid and win a championship.
