Philadelphia 76ers had a tough night in the offensive end during the game vs. Raptors with Joel Embiid struggling in the fourth quarter of the game.

The Sixers went without a field goal for seven minutes in the last quarter of the game in Tampa with Embiid unable to convert his attempts.


“I just missed shots that I usually make,” said Embiid. “As soon as I cross half court, they send two or three guys on me and the whole night, I made the right play. I shared the ball, I passed it to my teammates. We could have made more shots, a lot of shots were in and out.”

The Sixers’ superstar finished the contest with 25 points, however he only shot 6-of-20 from the field. He also had 17 rebounds and two assists.

After Sunday’s loss, Doc Rivers’ team dropped to 20-11 with the Brooklyn Nest being 0.5 games behind the Sixers in the Eastern Conference standings.
