Joel Embiid was horrific on Monday night, going 0-for-11 from the field and 0-for-3 from the line to finish scoreless in 32 minutes in a loss to the Raptors.
One wonders if Embiid will have another excuse after this one, or if he used all those up in last year's playoffs. Marc Gasol continued to wreak havoc on the young star and Embiid ended up making things easier by forcing himself into stupid shots. He had 13 rebounds, two assists, four turnovers and no other stats. There will be better nights ahead. This is the first scoreless game of Embiid's career.
