Joel Embiid: 'I'm Going to Be a Nightmare for

Joel Embiid

The Blazers racked up 12 turnovers by halftime, all while rattling 3-pointers off the back iron. Portland rushed its offense in the face of unlikely success by the Pelicans, who continued to rain down from deep. Joel lasted 4:12 in his first stint, scoring four points all from the line. Philadelphia came out on top, 128-108.

"I felt like it was the time to come back, especially how physical [the Sixers' Game 2 loss] was", Embiid said.

Embiid, who scored 23 points in Game 3 with seven rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes, has moved his attention elsewhere. Simmons shot free throws at a rate of 4.5 attempts per 36 minutes in the regular season.

"I'm trying to figure that out right now", he said.

It was annoying. But that was the only way I could play in this game, if I wore the mask and protected my face with goggles. I kind of shut him up a little bit because he was talking big time when he did block me.

"I am proud of what [Embiid] did on the court and the professionalism he showed", Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

SAN ANTONIO - Kevin Durant had 26 points, nine rebounds and six assists, and the Golden State Warriors beat San Antonio 110-97 on Thursday night for a 3-0 series lead over the Spurs, who were still reeling from the death of Gregg Popovich's wife, Erin.

Luckily Embiid doesn't have a secret identity to protect, so he won't have to order 10,000 of them at a time.


Let's walk through the best beefs to emerge from Philly's hard-fought Game 3 win over the Heat.

Whiteside said there were things he could do to be more productive but also suggested that he'd like to play more minutes.

"It's clear that the first game and the third game were played on their terms", Spoelstra told reporters after the game. Since that second quarter collapse in Game 2, they have outscored the Heat by 32 points. Of course, the loss was by no means Wade's fault.

The saga began in Game 2 when Heat guard Goran Dragic hit a layup with one second left - the shot clock was off - to make Miami's win a final score of 113-103. Miami's bench-Wade included-combine to go 11-for-37.

Afterward, Embiid had a bold message for the Heat.

"It's just different, man".

The Sixers and Heat will return to the American Airlines Arena in Miami tomorrow afternoon for Game 4 at 2:30pm ET. Expect those trends to continue. Yet rather than take blame for his poor play through the first three games, he points to the offensive game plan being different from what it was in the regular season and says he wishes he had the chance to contribute the same way Embiid does for the Sixers.

Embiid was listed as doubtful for Game 3 on Thursday morning and was upgraded to probable two hours before tipoff. The Heat were 6-for-18 from within five feet of the rim during his postseason debut.
