Considering the team was without Joel Embiid for the entirety of the West Coast swing, had Danny Green out for four games, and saw Tobias Harris and Seth Curry miss time, a 2-4 trip isn’t all that bad. Even better, Embiid is looking more and more likely to make his return from his COVID-related absence. Tyrese Maxey has done more than his fair share to make up for his teammates’ absences, now averaging 18.7 points per game on the season, with 4.6 assists against just 1.2 turnovers.
The first game back home after long road trips can sometimes serve as letdown spots, and we’re still not 100 percent sure Joel Embiid will be back or if Tobias Harris will play, as he is listed as questionable with his hip soreness. The Wolves are playing at the top of their games at the moment, so victory tonight is by no means assured.
