The fact that the Sixers were able to rally and come out on top against the team with the best record in the NBA truly shows just how good they can be.
“Yeah, considering everything else, that’s the best team in the league as far as record goes,” said Embiid when asked if it was the team’s best win of the season. “We didn’t play well today, but we did a good enough job. We can get way better. Like I always say, we don’t take enough 3s and we gotta make them too. I think last game, we didn’t make anything at all, and tonight, we made a few, but not enough.”
The focus entering this game was the run that Warriors star Steph Curry is on.
“I asked them after the game, ‘Are you not entertained?’ because I told our guys before the game, I felt like this was our home floor, and you felt like Maximus,” said Rivers.
