JOJO’S HEROIC RETURN: 18 POINTS, 11 BOARDS, LEADERSHIP!

By Lewis Gould

Joel Embiid (facial fracture) returned with 18 points on 5-of-12 shooting (8-of-10 free throws) and 11 rebounds with one assist, one steal, and one block as the Sixers beat the Heat 99-79.

He did take a whack on the head from Bam Adebayo late in the fourth quarter, but he stayed in the game and sank two free throws after briefly laying on the floor in some pain.

Coach Doc Rivers let Embiid play a few more series before subbing him out for the night. Game 4 is Sunday night in South Philly.
