The Jazz ran pick-and-rolls and launched a ton of 3s. The Sixers posted Joel Embiid early and often.
Despite an onslaught of Utah Jazz 3s, the Sixers were able to topple the NBA’s best team behind Joel Embiid’s MVP performance. After a Sixers run with baskets from Curry, Simmons, and Embiid, the Jazz found themselves calling timeout as well. Embiid made a huge block on Gobert at the rim and hit a 3-pointer to retake the lead.
The Jazz ball movement and shooting appeared to be too sharp for Philly coming down the stretch.
