After bitch-slapping the Celtics last night for 35 points (9-19 FG) and 16-of-20 free throw attempts, Sixers center Joel Embiid saidIt doesn’t matter who’s in front of me.”

His 20 attempts were more than the entire Celtics team.

“As we’ve seen all season, it doesn’t really matter who has been in front of me. I just attack every single game I want to be aggressive. I want to get the other bigs in foul trouble, I want to get to the bonus early so now they’re going to stop playing physical. Even if they play physical I’m going to use that to my advantage to get the free-throw line.”
