Sacramento Kings Discuss Difficulty of Facing Joel Embiid

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

Ever since he’s stepped foot on the court to compete for the Sixers, Embiid has been a problem for the opposition. While the Kings don’t have an All-Star caliber big man to counter Philly’s dominance at the position, Sacramento sent double and sometimes triple teams at Embiid. Sacramento head coach Alvin Gentry actually believed his team had a successful outing against Embiid specifically, which goes to show just how dominant he’s been. “We held him to 36, and that’s below his average, so I don’t know if anything else needs to be said other than that. He’s a little bit of everything. He’s part Shaq, part Olajuwon. One part, you know, whatever you want to say. He’s just a tremendous player, and he came back.”

Gentry got a good idea of Embiid’s dominance watching from the sidelines, but Sacramento center Damian Jones experienced guarding Embiid first-hand.
