Regardless of the diet, Embiid claimed his dominance and efficacy in the Sixers' 127-111 triumph .
Embiid's creation was critical to Philadelphia's assault on Friday night, but his flexibility as an offensive player paced the Sixers to their most remarkable performance this postseason. A main reason Embiid did not equal his output attempts at Game 3? He had been discovering teammates from the Hawks' double-teams. On three occasions, he struck on the Sixers' perimeter players to get blank 3-pointers.
Since the largest body on the ground, Embiid supplied the displays and rubs that fueled the Sixers' competitive assault. All night , the Hawks found themselves pancaked by choices from Embiid. Because of this, the Atlanta defense spent a lot of the nighttime scrambling.
"It was just like a downhill match tonight for us, in which they had been turning the corner on these displays together with Embiid and [Ben] Simmons, and essentially just playing our paint," Hawks coach Nate McMillan said. "We have got to do a better job of providing aid, being on the displays -- but the guards must make it through those displays "
"Playing a torn meniscus isn't simple," Embiid explained. "Pain will be there. You just must handle it. Tonight, rolling in my ankle, and falling in my spine, it is tough. I am here to playwith. I have mentioned previously, whatever I could do, I am gonna give it the best I got. Even if I am playing hurt, I got to do my own job. That is why they pay me, and I wish to win the tournament "
