Watch Joel Embiid reject Derrick Favors at the rim

3 Comments

Another game, another Sixers loss — and another night with Joel Embiid highlights.

The Sixers’ star rookie held his own against an elite defensive center in Rudy Gobert, scoring 14 points on eight shots and grabbing nine boards. He also blocked one shot — rejecting Utah’s Derrick Favors at the rim.

Utah, however, had little trouble with the Sixers winning 109-84. Philly has lost 43 straight games in October and November. They have a couple against a struggling Pacers team later in the week that could break that streak.
