Embiid hyperextended his knee in first quarter, landing awkwardly on a chasedown block of Enes Kanter. Worst-case scenarios flashed through the minds of Sixers fans as Embiid went to the locker room. Not only did Joel return to the game a few minutes later, he went on to score 25 points in the second quarter alone, tying Andrew Toney’s franchise record for most points in a quarter.
