Joel Embiid scored 26 points in 33 minutes of play as the 76ers opened the first round series against the Nets with a win (121-101).

Brooklyn’s head coach Jacque Vaughn thought that the referees turned the blind eye on the Cameroonian superstar’s rule violations, namely travelling and three seconds.

“Hopefully they’ll be calling travel and three seconds on the big fella (Joel Embiid) next game. So I’ll be looking forward to that,” Vaugh said, via Kristian Winfield.
