3 observations: Joel Embiid returns, but Sixers blown out by Hawks

USA Today


Article Summary:

Despite having Joel Embiid and Mike Scott return, the Sixers still only had nine players including four rookies to rely on.

The result was predictable as they fell to the Hawks 112-94 on the road. Embiid had 24 points and 11 rebounds while playing 23 minutes in this one with the team having to play Tuesday in Philadelphia, Tyrese Maxey had 15 points and six rebounds, Isaiah Joe had 18 off the bench, and Dakota Mathias had 14 points as well. Whenever Maxey went to the bench, the Sixers had a tough time trying to bring the ball up the floor either with Danny Green or even Embiid in some instances. The Hawks applied a full-court press and the Sixers did not handle it well.
