The Sixers only needed Joel Embiid for 31 minutes in Sunday’s 121-99 win over the Nets; he posted 32 points (11-of-24 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), 12 rebounds, nine assists, one block, and one 3-pointer.
The reigning MVP fell one assist shy of his first triple-double of the season, with the nine dimes being a season-high.
Embiid’s providing top 5 per-game value in 9-cat formats heading into Week 5, with the 76ers scheduled to play three games (Tuesday/Wednesday back-to-back).
Nicolas Batum, who missed the prior two games for personal reasons, was back in the starting lineup on Sunday, finishing with three points (1-of-1 FGs), three rebounds, three assists, and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.
