There’s nothing like a colossal showdown between two giants down on the block. Jarrett Allen certainly isn’t one to just back off and he deserves applause for going at the Sixers star. He did almost come close to turning the highlight around to his favor, falling perhaps just an inch short to sending the ball back to Joel Embiid’s face.
Nevertheless, at the end of the day, Allen had the last laugh, with the Cavs coming out on top over the Sixers. Cleveland pulled off the upset with a 112-109 overtime victory, securing its 13th win of the season.
Allen, acquired by Cleveland just over a month ago, certainly had his work cut out for him defending the Sixers MVP candidate. Embiid carried majority of the load for Philadelphia with a monster 42-point outing, to go along with 13 rebounds, six assists and two blocks. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers were led by their backcourt tandem of Collin Sexton and Darius Garland, who scored 28 points and 25 points, respectively. Allen notched a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
