Players should do this more often. Joel Embiid had an easier path to the basket without dribbling, and only he – not defenders – knew where his toss was headed. So, he had a head start at re-collecting the ball.

Plus, it looks awesome.

The 76ers eventually beat the Nets on Jimmy Butler‘s game-winner.
