The Sixers have no answer for Embiid. If healthy I really like their odds against Brooklyn but there isn't nearly enough time for him to get healthy.

Embiid is playing great, but man, it looks like he’s miserable and laboring on that knee.

I hate the crap he pulls (for ref calls) but man is that guy special. We'll never see a fully healthy Embiid but if there were such an animal, he'd be one of the top 3 players of all time IMO. He's two way dominant. He's also either the biggest softie or the toughest guy to ever take the court. Gets what appears to be career ending injuries every other game and just as you start to throw dirt on his body he's back dominating the game.

The 76ers have come alive tonight and lead Atlanta 95-75 at the end of 3rd.
This game just makes me appreciate our defense... *Knocks on wood before game.

The hawks are playing atrocious on the defensive side. It still wins championships after all. O gets ya there...D finishes it off!

Suns will need to bring the defense tonight. I'm expecting the Nuggets to come out fired up.

That should be a fine for KD. Can’t control your hired personnel? Here’s your fine.

I didn't realize it was his personal security. At least that explains why Durant was so willing to get all up in PJ's face and talk trash to a guy that could have ended him.

He's KD's personal security but on the Nets payroll. So KD may end up getting a pass. If he weren't on the Nets payroll though I'd think that would be a huge fine or suspension for Durant. Its not right either way, he was the escalator and should have never have gotten involved in a player incident.

KD has proven to be such a cupcake though it wouldn't be surprising to learn he's directed the guy to get involved if he ends up in an on court altercation. If that can be proven then I think there should be a penalty of some sort.

As Shaq would say, Embiid is like the Pythagorean Theorem: there is no answer.

KD's reputation is now deep in the tank, probably with the rest of the players in the league. That security guy should be fired and banned from arenas. The Nets should be fined--seven figures.

And if I was reffing the game, I would have let PJ just whack away at KD the rest of the game. Its good I am not a ref I guess.
