Al Horford lives in Joel Embiid’s head

On Tuesday, another standout performance against Joel Embiid reminded us how Al Horford provides a crucial advantage against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Boston Celtics scored one of their most substantial victories of the season on Tuesday night, a three-point win (on the road without Kyrie Irving) over the Philadelphia 76ers that secured them both the season series over the Sixers and the tiebreaker in the Eastern Conference standings. While you can pick any number of highlights to focus on, the core of the Celtics’ victory came in the paint, where they flustured Joel Embiid for much of...

Video: Knicks’ Mitchell Robinson rejects Sixers’ Joel Embiid on back-to-back plays

New York Knicks rookie Mitchell Robinson just rejected Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid, not once, but twice. In their game on Wednesday, the 20-year-old Robinson perfectly timed Embiid’s shot attempt in back-to-back plays: Among rookies, Robinson is the leader in blocked shots per game with 2.03. Overall, he’s the sixth in the league which makes […] The post Video: Knicks’ Mitchell Robinson rejects Sixers’ Joel Embiid on back-to-back plays appeared first on ClutchPoints.

76ers 126, Knicks 111: Please get Mitchell Robinson some better teammates

The kid can play. Another day, another loss for the New York Knicks. They came back from a 26-point third-quarter deficit to make it interesting, mostly thanks to the brilliance of rookies Allonzo Trier (team-high 19 points) and Mitchell Robinson (14 points, 13 rebounds, 4 blocks and 2 steals). The play of the game, in my opinion, belongs to Robinson. Up seven with the game still in reach, Philly called a timeout and then went to their old reliable, All-Star center Joel Embiid.

Havlicek Stole the Pod: Celtics have fun vs. 76ers

Marcus Morris set a tone, Al Horford followed and Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum dunked to cap off a victorious night followed by Philly cheesesteaks. The Celtics finally had fun. Boston trounced the 76ers behind maybe the dunk of the season by Jayson Tatum. Marcus Smart dunked off one leg, Al Horford held it down on Joel Embiid and the new Sixers additions made a quiet debut against Brad Stevens and company. The C’s have won 21 of 24 against Philly, and 11 of 14 overall, so why the panic? Is the fun that big of a factor, as Marcus Morris says? How much stock do we put in the two Lakers...

Joel Embiid won’t give Boston Celtics center Al Horford any props for keeping him in foul trouble and rendering a 9-of-22 shooting night out of him during a 112-109 Celtics win at the Wells Fargo Center. “He’s not doing anything,” Embiid said when asked about being guarded by Horford, according to ESPN’s Tim Bontemps. “I […] The post Joel Embiid isn’t giving Al Horford credit after Celtics’ win over 76ers appeared first on ClutchPoints.
