Sixers star Joel Embiid finds joy, love in passing out of double teams

USA Today


Article Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid has made strides in passing the ball out of double teams.

To begin the new season, the team has been helping him with those double teams with the supporting cast of shooters plus the guidance of coach Doc Rivers. “Last year, at times, a double, a pass and you miss a lot of shots. You get frustrating and then you start thinking that you got to do everything by yourself because everybody’s not making shots.”

That is not the case with this team. Embiid had four assists in Monday’s win over the Charlotte Hornets, and he only had one turnover despite the aggressive waves of double teams the Hornets threw at him.
