Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers leave Charlotte in one piece



Article Summary:

Anytime Joel Embiid hits the deck during a Philadelphia 76ers game, it’s worrisome.

If the last three games are of any indication, Joel Embiid has to get used to the reality of his situation: He’s going to be double-teamed on basically every post touch.

Maybe one day Maxey will demand enough respect from opposing defenses to ease up Embiid’s burden in the paint, but for now, when he’s averaging eight points per game instead of 25.4, staggering the minutes Philly’s top-two players share the court in any given game – yes, I said it – could be as beneficial as closing out games with Danny Green at small forward instead of Matisse Thybulle. In the six games he’s faced off against the Philadelphia 76ers’ best player, Gobert has allowed Embiid to average 23.8 points, 12.8 rebounds, and three assists per game, all the while recording a /- of 38, which is very good.
