Joel Embiid: They call me 'Clutch' for a reason

11 November 2018

He has earned the confidence of the Sixers to aggressively seek out shots there. All but eight of the NBA's second-leading scorer's points came in the fourth quarter or overtime. He made all six of his free-throw attempts in the final two minutes of regulation, and hit arguably the biggest shot of the game, a 28-foot 3-pointer with 34 seconds remaining to tie the contest at 117.

They have beat the Over/Under 2 times in this two-week span, while falling under 5 times.

Ben Simmons had 22 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds for the 76ers. "I don't know what to tell them when Embiid shoots 16 free throws in the fourth quarter and overtime, I don't know what to say to them".

Jazz 123, Celtics 115: SALT LAKE CITY - Joe Ingles matched his career high with 27 points and added a season-high seven assists to help Utah beat Boston in Gordon Hayward's return to Utah. He shot 43.8% from the field, making 7 of his 16 attempts (5/6 from the line, 1/5 from three-point range).

That's why Embiid couldn't just settle with claiming the upper hand last week in his second battle of the season with longtime nemesis Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons by outscoring him in the first half, 32-0.

The Charlotte Hornets have played in five games decided by four points or less so far this season, only winning one of those games.

Bellemare was brought on board in 2015 to shore up the company that was in serious financial trouble with the CSeries program. The Company also announced a number of strategic actions, including the launch of an enterprise-wide productivity programme.

Donovan Mitchell had 21 points, former Celtics forward Jae Crowder scored 20 points and Ricky Rubio added 17, as the Jazz won consecutive games after losing four in a row. On Charlotte's next possession, however, Walker drilled a 3-pointer and the Sixers' lead was cut to 100-94. Washington fell to 2-9.

Aside from Pacers guard Victor Oladipo having his way offensively yet again, cruising to a season-high 36 points, seven assists and six rebounds, the Sixers were resilient until the final buzzer. They'll learn as the season goes on, but they need to figure it out quickly, because you can't let too many games slip away from you in this league.

Elsewhere, Caris LeVert nailed a clutch shot with 0.3 seconds left to spoil a slump-breaking night by Nikola Jokic as the Brooklyn Nets defeated the Denver Nuggets 112-110. Jeremy Lin had 19 points for Atlanta. Hornets starting center Cody Zeller fouled out in regulation after committing five fouls in the fourth.

A 15-point loss in Milwaukee has given the Sixers an 0-3 clip on the road against the only three Eastern Conference teams ahead of them in the current standings.

After averaging 21.6 points in October, Jokic saw his offense disappear in November.

Iman Shumpert scored 17 points, De'Aaron Fox had 16 points and 10 assists and Buddy Hield added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings.
