There is life beyond Embiid

If anything is leaving the Sixers-Nets playoff after the first two games it’s the feeling that this year in Philly there isn’t a group of players swarming around Joel Embiid who are completely and utterly dependent on what he does. On the contrary, this year there is a team capable of finding solutions to the problems that the rival puts them, even if those problems are focused on Embiid himself. Those from Brooklyn have a clear idea, the Cameroonian cannot score at the rate he has done during the regular season (he has been the top scorer in the League). At the moment they are getting it. In the first game he shot 15 times to the basket. Today he has done 11. His course average is 20.1. Between these two games he averages 23 goals (26 + 20). In the regular season, 33.1. There is nothing left but to applaud the defensive effort of a team that is managing to stop what will surely be named the best player of the season in a few days.

But all that effort isn’t helping the Nets win games and they’re already down 2-0 in the series. And the worst news for them is that their rival, whom they capsized for the first time in the first two quarters of the second game, is going home today 100% convinced that this tie is theirs and that they are not willing to give away even a point. That he does not want to make the mistakes of the past, with which he was leaving victories against inferior teams that later took a physical toll on him in later rounds against bigger rivals. The biggest news is that this time it looks like the Sixers really believe in themselves. They believe that this year they can go far. And they believe it because they have realized that there is life beyond Embiid.

And it is not that the Cameroonian was a zero to the left precisely. In fact, his 15 rebounds in the first half (more than any Sixers in history) were one of the keys to keeping his team afloat in the worst moments. He finished the game with 19, 7 assists and 3 blocks. He is capable of adding beyond scoring baskets. We all knew that. The novelty is that the team does not panic if they do not put them in. The first day they had a triple festival, with James Harden in sniper mode. and today what The beard He did not give one (3/13 in field goals, 2/8 in triples for 8 points) it has not been a problem either. Well, a little yes until the break, when the Nets went up 44-49 in what, at the time, was a magnificent result for the locals. But because this team believes in itself, he came back calmly from the locker room, making his plays, warming up little by little. When they wanted to realize it, a few minutes later, the Nets were down 8 (64-56) with the Wells Fargo stands standing.

This time it was Tyrese Maxey, with 33 points, and Tobias Harris, with 20, who shot their team on the scoreboard. And while Embiid raised his fist celebrating the baskets of his teammates: “Many people think that I love to score a basket, but it is not true. What I love is winning.” At the moment they are 2-0 winning. I’m sure you’ll be happy.
