Coming off of an illness, Embiid hardly looked like himself in the 25 minutes he played as he scored just six points on nine shots and collected only two rebounds in comparison to Bam Adebayo’s 12 boards.
Considering the Sixers are playing again on Friday night, one might think Embiid could sit out since he didn’t look like himself on Thursday. “We wouldn’t play if he wasn’t one-hundred percent. Joel, nobody played well, so I would love to say it was Joel, Ben, or Tobias… I thought we all were bad. We all looked like we were stuck in the mud tonight. No explanation for it, but that’s how it looked.”
The Sixers flew back to Philly following Thursday night’s beatdown in South Beach. While Embiid’s playing status remains unclear, it seems there is a chance of him getting redemption on Friday night as Rivers believes he could possibly play again.
