Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia Sixers took Game 2 against the Toronto Raptors on Monday night, 94-89.
Embiid was questionable to join the game, both because of his nagging knee issue but also because of gastroenteritis. The Sixers big man said as much after the game while at the podium with teammate Jimmy Butler.
Of course, in his own special way, Embiid described what was happening to him before the win.
Warning, NSFW language ahead.
That’s one way to put it.
Embiid came out of the contest against the Raptors with a statline of 12 points, six rebounds, six turnovers, and five assists.
He didn’t play his best game, but the Sixers came together and beat Toronto on their home court.
Game 3 is on Thursday back in Pennsylvania.
