Philadelphia 76ers coach Doc Rivers has yet to reveal his hand ahead of Monday’s Game 4 of the team’s Eastern Conference semifinal series against the host Atlanta Hawks.
“I don’t think there’s any better motivation than starting the game, because you know you need to set the tone with the starters and you need to be good,” Korkmaz said. “I’m standing up, I’m walking. I finished the game. I’m going to keep getting back up. I’m going to keep fighting. That’s been me since I started playing basketball, so I’m going to keep fighting. That’s been my motto. Whatever happens, get back up and keep it going.”
Embiid finished with 27 points on Friday and Tobias Harris added 22, extending the latter’s streak of 20-point performances to a career-best six in a row. The Hawks made a franchise playoff-record 20 shots from beyond the arc in the series opener before totaling 17 in the next two games.
