So far, the Sixers have played two games without Embiid.
While most of the Sixers’ roster has a hand in that success, 76ers veteran forward Tobias Harris has been leading the charge as he’s seizing the opportunity to step up and take over.
“I try to just find motivation in different areas,” Harris explained on Tuesday night after the Sixers defeated the Knicks at home.
“I think just the challenge of having Joel out, it’s a new challenge that’s presented for us as a team, and I want to embrace that challenge. I know how good of a team we are with him. I know how good of a team we are even without him.”
During the first half of the season, the Sixers crumbled more often than not when Embiid wasn’t playing.
