Former Jayhawk Joel Embiid has monster playoff debut
Apr 21, 2018, 00:41
Whiteside, Miami's $100 million franchise center, had a particularly rough evening. Embiid's swashbuckling style is key to covering up the Sixers' lack of playoff know-how. The big man finished his National Basketball Association playoff debut with 23 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three blocks on the night with 10 of his points coming from free throws. The series is tied 1-1. Sixers coach Brett Brown thought the whole incident was amusing.
Rightly so, too. Embiid started the day doubtful, ended it dominant, and had plenty of help as well.
Embiid averaged 22.9 points, 11 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game during the regular season, earning his first All-Star appearance. Embiid also participated in shootaround Thursday morning but had yet to be cleared for full contact, Brown said.
The 24-year-old will sport a mask and eye goggles to protect the eye from anymore potential damage on the court. Before he got his face broken in a collision with teammate Markelle Fultz, the Sixers were just 3-8 in games Embiid sat out, and had been outscored by 3.9 points per 100 possessions when he wasn't on the floor.
"It definitely matters because you can just dribble it out, everything", Philadelphia forward Robert Covington said.
How quickly things have changed for the Trail Blazers.
Game 4 of the series tips off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at AmericanAirlines Arena. Embiid was not going to allow that physicality to go unmatched on this night, and his presence will likely spell the end of the line for the Heat, who rely on rough-and-tumble play to cover their offensive deficiencies. Dwyane Wade, who Miami needed to be superb in the win at Philadelphia in Game 2, shot 2 for 10.
"I felt like it was the time to come back, especially how physical [the Sixers' Game 2 loss] was", Embiid said.
