Embiid opened his account with a deft fadeaway jumper before showcasing his three-point accuracy and low-post scoring. A muscular first-quarter drive earned the Cameroonian and ‘And 1’ while a powerful second-quarter dunk from a Ben Simmons pass kept the scoreboard ticking.

Embiid’s best moments came in the fourth quarter he was first to react to a missed three-pointer to score with an emphatic put-back dunk then, minutes later, latched to a JJ Redick to ram home a one-handed baseline slam.
