Joel Embiid (sore left ankle) played through a questionable tag on Friday and was able to post 14 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in 23 minutes.
Embiid also committed five turnovers and five fouls, so it wasn't all perfect, but he was able to stay in rhythm and on the floor as the Sixers get ready for their series against Boston. While Philly is the underdog given their rocky season and the absence of Ben Simmons, the Celtics have had trouble guarding bigs all year. Embiid will be the focus of the defense but he might just feast anyway.
