The shot came off some action with Embiid as the two worked a nice two-man game down the stretch.
“It’s feeling pretty good,” Curry said of his relationship with Embiid. “We’re just figuring it out as we go along, and it’s good to make some clutch plays the first game of the year and tonight while we’re figuring out our end of game offense.”
It is Embiid’s job to be sure he gets Curry open off of that action. The ability of Embiid to set the screen and immediately get himself open, draw the double and find Curry open for the 3 was a big factor in the win.
