“I thought in the beginning of the game, when I went back to the locker room, I just felt like I didn’t have it tonight,” Embiid said.
“I got hit last game, and it’s been kind of sore,” Young said. “We’ve been fighting all year and this team never gives up, no matter what the score is throughout the game. We know it’s a long game. The NBA is a long game. It’s a 48-minute game. For us, it was just staying level-headed throughout the whole game.
“Every team is gonna make runs.
“The hustle game, the scrap game was one of the keys that we felt we had to win tonight to beat Philadelphia,” Hawks interim head coach Nate McMillan said.
