The Philadelphia 76ers received a big night from Joel Embiid in order to force overtime against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday, but in order to pull out the 131-123 victory, they needed help from the other guys.
Tobias Harris made his return to the floor after missing two games with a right knee contusion, and he made a big impact late in the game. He had 11 points through the first four quarters, but he dropped 11 in overtime to finish with 22.
Harris was understandably out of rhythm after missing a few games. “They had Bogdanovic guarding Tobias is tough, so we liked the match up before the game started. We tried to get to it a couple of times in the first half and Tobias missed two games so he didn’t have great rhythm, but once we felt like he had his rhythm going, we wanted to feed that and it came through for us.”
Once Embiid made the 3 to force overtime, the Jazz turned their defensive attention to the big fella.
