Embiid returns to form for 76ers in 'do-or-die' win

Drake, Raptors fans mock Joel Embiid's airplane celebration (VIDEOS)

For all of the "trade Ben" talks that emerged after sub-par showings over the first five games of the Eastern Conference semi-finals, they were quickly shut down with 21 points, eight rebounds, and six assists; the Philadelphia 76ers forcing a deciding Game 7 against the Toronto Raptors.

With Game 5 ahead in Toronto on Tuesday night, the Sixers are no longer saying how Embiid is feeling. "All during pre-game film you can hear him sneezing and sneezing and sneezing, and you try to ignore it and just coach through it and show the players the pre-game tape, but I'd be lying if I were to tell you it wasn't completely on my mind as I'm talking to the team", Brown said.

It's sure to be a contentious topic when the game releases at some point in the future. The game was originally planned to come first on Playstation 4 and then on the PC.


Outside of his 33-point showing in Game 3, Embiid has scored a total of 52 points in the other four games. "That's what I got to keep on doing - do the little things, and everything's going to follow". This time, Embiid's issues are diagnosed as an "upper respiratory infection.' It was unclear that Embiid was sick during his time out on the court on Sunday, but it was obvious that the Sixers" big man wasn't playing as well as he typically would.

"I think it's grossly unfair, some of the criticism that he gets". Seeing as though he played through his sickness on Sunday, it would be a shock to see Embiid miss any matchups moving forward. "Everyone on the team wants to win, and when we have that mindset, we're a pretty risky team", Nuggets guard Will Barton said.

After Game 4, Brown explained that his 25-year-old centre had been struck by a virus, details of which were naturally fuzzy. That would be an incredible loss considering the fact that a flagrant-2 comes with a mandatory ejection. On a conference call with reporters on Monday afternoon, Brown would only say that he had no update on Embiid's condition.

Do not expect many Get Well Soon cards in Scotiabank Arena on Tuesday. "It means a lot to me, to be honest". "We don't feel like we've played our best basketball yet and with our back against the wall, we don't really have a choice".

The presidents of General Motors Canada and Unifor announced the automaker will invest $170 million in the Oshawa Assembly Plant. Others will find help finding new work through a new job action centre connecting them to some 40 employers in the Toronto area.


That's a far cry from the 27.5 points, 13.6 rebounds and 18.7 shots per game he averaged in the regular season.
