Joel Embiid Impresses In 1st Meeting Against Dwight Howard
Although the Hawks destroyed the 76ers by 32 on Saturday, rookie Joel Embiid gave 76ers fans plenty to cheer about. The 7’0 rookie started the game off with a 3-pointer and finished with 14 points, 2 rebounds, 2 blocks and a steal in just 15 minutes. He was also 5 of 9 from the field and 3 of 4 from the line.
Dwight Howard was decent on the defensive end with 3 blocks and 7 boards but was just 1 of 4 from the field and never attempted a free throw in 19 minutes. 1 of his 3 field goal misses was a layup rejected by Embiid.
