Joel Embiid playing exclusively￼ in the post exposed one of Atlanta￼’s major weaknesses! This is the second time this year were the opposing center had a career night against y’all. ￼👇🏽
The Philadelphia 76ers unleashed their beast. Atlanta started double teaming Joel Embiid. But that didn’t work￼. He would kick it out to shooters. Also players were able to slash to the rim because of clear driving lanes created by Joel Embiid. Or they would pass the ball back to Embiid for a repost. I believe that was the game plan going into last night’s game. A formula for success in my opinion! Now play like this against a good team.
For the Sixers going forward, will they continue with this formula of using Joel Embiid more in the post?

NBA (bballscholar) Terminology :
Repost– This is when a player in the post passes it out to a wing player. Then the post player can now establish a deeper post position. The wing player then passes it back to the post player as he has deeper post position with a 1 on 1 match up.
