I love injecting any semblance of vivacity into a Sixers squad that had become the worst thing you want from your favorite sports team: both bad and boring.
That 28-12-4 performance from Embiid is something Sixers fans were accustomed to during his MVP-caliber campaign last season. The Sixers outscored Atlanta 20-9 in the final period. The Sixers’ season hasn’t been what fans wanted, but how much worse would things be without Curry in Sixers red, white and blue? What would Sixers fans be doing? Running lottery simulations on Tankathon?
it’s the pump fake for us.
