Sixers center Joel Embiid led the NBA in scoring last season, and this season he leads again with a 33 PPG average.
And he has made the elbows — the twin spots on the court where the free-throw line and the corners of the lane meet — his home office.
From there, he can shoot over smaller defenders or use his strength and quickness to drive past them.
“And the second part is his passing,” Rivers told the New York Times.
“His passing has gone from a four to a nine in that area.”
Embiid is averaging 4.6 assists per game and 9.9. rebounds per game
