Joel Embiid on Matisse Thybulle: “You can tell he loves these types of matchups.. We played Boston three times, JT has really struggled against him. He has length and he’s athletic, getting to passing lanes and able to recover. That’s huge.”

Joel Embiid on the @Philadelphia 76ers after winning 8 of their last 9:

“We’ve just gotta stay healthy, & keep doing what we’re doing..

During this stretch, we’ve been very good offensively, moving the ball. These guys: they just allow me to do what I do best, offensively and defensively.” – 11:21 PM Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann

Joel Embiid: “When I look at where we are, when we got most of the team healthy and me in the lineup, we’re 21-9. All that tells me we got to stay healthy.”

“There’s really no urgency to change anything. I think got everything we need. We’re gonna keep on going and I’m happy.” PM

Embiid, on the state of the team at the halfway point of the season: “I feel great (about where we are)…when we got most of the team healthy, especially me, in the lineup, then we are 21-9. You know, that’s not bad.” – 10:43 PM Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck

Joel Embiid: “There’s really no urgency to change anything. We’ve got everything we need.”

Joel Embiid, on their improved defensive execution tonight: “Charlotte, they move the ball extremely well and they have shooters all over the place, and they made a bunch of jump shots. Boston is more of an iso heavy team, so it becomes easier to load up and try to stop them.” – 10:36 PM Noah Levick @NoahLevick

Joel Embiid says he feel good about where the Sixers are at through 41 games. Points to how well they’ve done when he and other key players are healthy.

Embiid, in part: “There’s no urgency to change anything. We’ve got everything we need.” – 10:24 PM Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen

Joel Embiid on the @Philadelphia 76ers’ continued growth and rising ceiling:

Tyrese Maxey is giving off serious SGA vibes. And I love how Embiid has subtly taken on more play initiation himself in the last two months to accommodate his game. – 9:20 PM Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann

Joel Embiid’s 30-point streak will end at eight. He finishes with 25 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists as Andre Drummond will check in to close out a Sixers win against Boston. – 9:16 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

I don’t blame the Philly fans for booing. I’d want Embiid to get 30 points too. His teammates have to get him a shot here. – 9:14 PM Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe

Offensive foul on Embiid and Nesmith lives to tell about it. #Celtics #76ers9:12 PM Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP

Celtics win challenge…offensive foul on Embiid. – 9:11 PM Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps

Joel Embiid just tried to end Aaron Nesmith’s life on that dunk, and nearly took himself out in the process. Scary looking play, though he appears to be fine. – 9:10 PM Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

The Celtics may not want to drive and challenge Embiid but it’s so important to get the ball into the paint. They have to drive and at least collapse the defense and then try to force some rotation – 7:59 PM A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely

Celtics getting their ass kicked badly, down 32-14 after first quarter to Philly. And the worst part for Boston? Joel Embiid (8 pts, 4 reb, 4 asst) isn’t even going hard at them…yet. – 7:41 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

Doc Rivers, with a smile, when asked what has allowed Joel Embiid to be so consistently dominant lately: “He’s really good.” Says he gets a lot of calls from former players, including Kevin Garnett, who are effusive in their praise of Embiid’s talent level. – 5:23 PM Austin Kent @AustinKent

More on this storyline

But Embiid said he believes the Sixers are good enough to win with the players they have available to them right now — though he admitted that it would require the 76ers to play near-perfect basketball. -via ESPN / January 15, 2022 Howard Eskin: The Ben Simmons fiasco continues. He has found another facility to workout and it’s not at #Sixers facility. I have confirmed the sighting of Simmons at the Fitler Club court at 2400 Market St,Philadelphia. I’m assuming he found working out with St Joe’s was a problem. #Pathetic -via Twitter / December 2, 2021 SiriusXM NBA: Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers continue to be in limbo with each other. @PompeyOnSixers tells @BGeltzNBA and @SamMitchellNBA he thinks this saga will impact how future free agents look at Philadelphia as a destination. -via Twitter @SiriusXMNBA / November 27, 2021
