Embiid took it off the dribble and was just too strong for any of the Hawks players to contest and the crowd erupted in epic fashion, perhaps shifting the momentum towards the Sixers.
The Sixers led by three at the end of the 1st quarter and with the dunk Embiid brought his points total to 13 with six rebounds halfway through the 2nd period.
Trae Young was struggling from the field, although that isn’t likely going to last very long knowing his explosiveness.
Embiid, the MVP runner-up and heartbeat of this team, is doing everything he can to advance to an ECF match against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks with an NBA Finals trophy appearing in their dreams.
Expect more fireworks from Embiid and the Sixers, who aren’t going to go down without a fight.
