Joel Embiid scored 11 points on 4-of-16 from the floor to go with 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and three turnovers in the Sixers’ loss to the Celtics on Friday night.
Embiid looks uncomfortable to start the season and is forcing it a bit, especially from 3-point land. In two games, Embiid is 0-10 from beyond the arc. A good sign is that he’s been a force on the boards and swatting plenty of shots. Plus, he’s received over 25 minutes in each game. A man this talented, he’ll figure it out.
