Sixers pumped up with Embiid, 'flat' without him

ATLANTA - It's obvious why the interest in the 76ers shrinks when Joel Embiid doesn't play. When he's on the court, the Sixers are an exciting team, capably of upsetting most squads in the Eastern Conference. There's no quit in the scrappy group that plays with a swagger.

Orlando was hanging in there, down 79-70 with the ball with under three minutes left in the third quarter, when they suddenly became a victim of the improving Stephen Curry. Quick review of Stephen Curry’s slump Okay, it’s a relative slump.
