Late in the Sixers’ romping of the Toronto Raptors in Game 3, Joel Embiid
baptized the Raptors threw down a vicious windmill that sucked the life out of the Raptors:
Embiid led Philly to victory, dominating on both ends while racking up 33 points (9-18 FG/3-4 3PT/12-13 FT), 10 rebounds, 3 assists and 5 blocks.
Some Thoughts & Notes
- Joel Embiid stood out, but the Sixers’ played well tonight top to bottom.
- For a team I thought was #deep, the Raptors are struggling to find contributions outside of Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam. The Raptors looked bad.
- Following the game, Brett Brown said his mind goes to defense when asked what he thinks of Embiid’s performance.
- During the broadcast, ESPN highlighted flashes of Jimmy Butler’s verbal communication throughout the game, encouraging Joel:
