Joel Embiid shot an ugly 9-of-23 from the floor on Saturday but made 10-of-13 from the line and finished with 29 points, 16 boards, two assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer.
His shot was off, but Embiid was aggressive and did his work at the line. He came into the game nursing a mild ankle injury and left briefly after slipping and tweaking his knee a bit, but returned with about five minutes left to finish out the win. The Sixers are in the playoff mix in the East and are going to need Embiid if they want to stay there so hopefully he can stay on the court and continue to reward fantasy owners who took the gable on him.
