Joel Embiid finished the Sixers 115-103 win over Boston with 33 points (10-of-23 FGs, 10-of-11 FTs), seven rebounds, three assists, four blocks, and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
The 76ers are now one win away from the Eastern Conference Finals, as they controlled the action for most of Tuesday’s Game 5.
And Embiid had plenty of help.
Tyrese Maxey put up 30 points, while Tobias Harris (16/11/1 with one 3-pointer) and James Harden (17/8/10/2 with one 3-pointer) recorded efficient double-doubles.
Philly consistently created clean looks on offense while limiting Boston to 39.8% shooting on the other end of the floor.
They’ll look to do the same in Game 6 on Thursday, as a win would close out the series.
