Philadelphia 76ers: Joel Embiid is central to the process

Despite blowing a 24-point lead on Saturday, the National Basketball Association as a whole has started to recognize the talent the Sixers have on their roster.

After swatting away rookie Donovan Mitchell's layup, Embiid turned and said something to the fallen Mitchell, who got up and shoved Embiid to the floor. Current holders of a 9-7 record, which includes two one-point losses, the Sixers are setting a pace that is leaps and bounds ahead of their 28-54 record of last season. Philadelphia's 47-point first quarter was the most points the Warriors allowed in any quarter since November 14, 1992 against Portland (48 in the fourth quarter). They stayed steady in the third quarter and then dominated the final few minutes. On offense, they have two serious matchup problems and complementary shooting. However, after an exceptional 31 games from the big man from Cameroon, the process hit yet another bump when Embiid suffered a torn meniscus prior the All-Star break and was forced out for the rest of the 2016/17 season.

After the game, Kevin Durant * a href="http://www.totalprosports.com/2017/11/18/kevin-durant-wanted-to-beat-the-76ers-to-keep-joel-embiid-from-talking-sht-on-twitter-video/" *hilariously told reporters that he was glad the Warriors won the game, if for no other reason than not having to see Sixers Twitter MVP Joel Embiid talk trash on Twitter.

So far this season, the Sixers have had the most hard schedule.

It was not until Embiid's third season in the league he could finally feature for the 76ers. Utah has been without Joe Johnson and Dante Exum all year and just recently lost center Rudy Gobert to a right tibia contusion. He finished 12 of 21 from the field, including 7 of 13 from 3-point range.

Embiid was coming off a career-best performance - 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven blocks, seven assists - in a 115-109 win at the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. Two more Curry free throws and a deep three-pointer gave him 20 points for the quarter, his highest-scoring quarter of the season, and helped him eclipse the 30-point threshold in a game for the fourth time this season. "You can't just be playing for 24 minutes". The Sixers were without G/F Justin Anderson (shin splints) and G/F Nik Stauskas (ankle sprain). Bayless hasn't played since November 3 due to a left wrist contusion.

The Warriors ended up winning the third quarter by an absurd 32-point margin, and hanging on to win thanks to several key contributions from their bench.
