Joel Embiid, Sixers feeling inspired to face NBA-leading Jazz at home

USA Today


Article Summary:

The teams met on Feb. 15 in Salt Lake City, and the Sixers suffered a close loss despite a career-high 42 points from Ben Simmons. “Hopefully, my ankle gets better as the days go. They’re a great team that’s dominating the league right now, so it’d be a great way to go into the break. Like I said, great team that’s gonna give us a lot of confidence to come out with a win.”

The Sixers lead the Eastern Conference as the Jazz lead the West so that makes this a big prime time matchup.

With the way these two teams are playing, maybe they will see each other again. “If we continue to play and they continue to play, I think we would all be thrilled to death if we played a third time. That would mean we’re all in the right place. We had a heck of a game there. We need to try to return the favor.”

Tipoff from Philadelphia is set for 7 p.m. EST on Wednesday.
