Embiid keeps playing
Embiid left the game before returning with a wrap around his finger, where he continued to play his normal allotment of minutes.
He logged 18 points, nine rebounds and eight assists while playing 32 minutes and shooting 7-of-17 from the field in the 120-113 victory.
‘It was pretty bad’
“It was pretty bad,” Embiid said. “I was basically playing with one hand. In the midst of the losing streak, I just wanted to make sure to do everything possible to try to get us a win.”
With the win, Philadelphia improves to 24-14, good for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
