Marcus Smart believed ‘flails’ from Joel Embiid led to the star’s 42-point performance

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Marcus Smart and Joel Embiid exchanged verbal jabs postgame. The free throw disparity between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics was staggering Wednesday night. Led by Joel Embiid, the 76ers were frequent flyers to the charity stripe, making 36-of-45 attempts as Embiid went to the line 21 times by himself as part of a 42-point performance. In contrast, the Celtics went 13-for-20 from the free-throw line as a team. Just in the fourth quarter, Boston didn’t attempt a single free throw while Philadelphia shot 17. That advantage...

Joel Embiid Chirps Marcus Smart For Flailing Comments: ‘Come On’

Celtics Wrap: Joel Embiid’s 42 Points Pulls 76ers Over Boston 117-109

Jayson Tatum was out, and Jaylen Brown got himself in foul trouble early for the Celtics. But that’s the luxury of having Kemba Walker back in the starting lineup, because he and Marcus Smart are there to pick up the slack. That was the case Wednesday, despite a 117-109 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. Smart […] The post Celtics Wrap: Joel Embiid’s 42 Points Pulls 76ers Over Boston 117-109 appeared first on NESN.com.

Sixers made a tough call by bowing out of the James Harden sweepstakes yet it was the right move

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ So the Sixers wound up not making a blockbuster trade yesterday for perennial MVP candidate James Harden. As such, many Philly fans are understandably disappointed. Over the last few years, we’ve had the chance to see and accept that the fit between Joel Embiid, and Ben Simmons is not seamless. As such the Sixers yesterday (and many fans) were hoping to swap Simmons, along with some sweeteners for Harden. After all, given Embiid’s combination of size, talent, age, contract, and injury history, a ten-year plan isn’t the way to go. You...

Sixers look for second win vs. Heat with more players nearing return

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via The team is (gradually) getting back together. The Philadelphia 76ers have been heavily depleted due to various injuries and COVID-19 health and safety protocols recently after Seth Curry’s positive test. Now, it looks like they’ll be able to start getting back on track in Thursday’s matchup against the Miami Heat. Tobias Harris, Shake Milton and Matisse Thybulle have all been upgraded to probable, which would give the Sixers some much-needed depth on the perimeter again.

Previous inconsistencies have paved the way for Joel Embiid to dominate at a level that should have the Philadelphia 76ers dreaming big.
