At this point, any time Joel Embiid has five seconds to stare down the rim and jab step once or twice from the mid-range, it feels like an automatic two points. Across a two-minute stretch early in the fourth quarter, Joel shifted into takeover mode, scoring eight straight Sixers points as he tried to drag the team back into the game. Joel finished with 16 points in the fourth quarter alone, but unfortunately, the Sixers were never able to string stops together towards the end of the game to seriously threaten Phoenix. You can include Joel among the group of many Sixers not at their best defensively in the second half.
