Philadelphia does not give Boston an option with a dominant Embiid

What was supposed to be an exciting matchup in the Eastern Conference was only a duel. The Celtics visited Philadelphia after three consecutive wins with the idea of ​​hitting the table and having a positive record again. They weren’t even close to it.

The 76ers, who have won eight of their last ten games, did not give their rival a chance. In a crushing first quarter they left the game almost closed by getting 18 points up (32-14). From that moment on, everything was a pleasant trip for the Pennsylvanians, who knew how to manage their income while Boston was unable to close the gap until 111-99 with which time expired.

A lot of blame for the victory and the current streak of the Sixers is Joel Embiid. The pivot went up to 25 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists to lead his team at all times. It is true that he did not reach 30 points, so I cannot set the record for consecutive games scoring at least thirty points. He is still tied with Allen Iverson and Wilt Chamberlain with eight straight games, but for him it is nothing more than anecdotal.

“I was aware of it, but it wasn’t really a goal I was chasing. We talk about legends. I’m surprised Wilt hasn’t done it more than eight times. My concentration was focused tonight on getting another victory. We got the win and that’s what makes me happy, «he says.

Along with Embiid, he also highlighted the performance of a very successful Tyrese Maxey who went up to 23 points and 5 assists. Tobias Harris and Seth Curry also reached double scoring figures, both with 17 points.

Udoka intones the mea culpa

Boston was never in a position to win. More was expected of them, and such was the understanding of Ime Udoka, who believes it was her fault that her boys did not jump onto the parquet prepared for battle.

“The bad start we had condemned us. I have to do a better job of preparing our guys to play. They were coming off a loss and played a little harder than us. It’s up to me, «he says before explaining the reason why he retired his starters losing 89-72. «There wasn’t much to do out there, so I was looking for a little spark from our younger guys and I’m going to fight tomorrow’s game.»

Regarding the individual performance, Jaylen Brown went to 21 points and Jayson Tatum signed a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds; yes, between the two they accumulated up to 12 losses.
