PHILADELPHIA – After beating the Boston Celtics to win for the ninth time in 11 games Friday night, 76ers superstar Joel Embiid said “There’s really no urgency to change anything” with his team with just under four weeks to go until the NBA’s trade deadline.
But Embiid said he believes the Sixers are good enough to win with the players they have available to them right now – though he admitted that it would require the 76ers to play near-perfect basketball.
“We need consistency, and everybody coming in every single night with the goal of just doing their job and chipping in offensively and defensively and just playing together and we’ll be fine.”
Philadelphia was more than fine against Boston Friday night, jumping on the Celtics with a 28-2 run in the first quarter and never looking back.
“If you compare, you know, tonight from the other night, it’s kind of easier to guard,” Embiid said.
