Sixers 112, Spurs 106: Joel Embiid's huge impact and other quick observations

In the third quarter after a pump fake, he had a short baseline jumper, but interestingly, he decided to shoot it with his opposite (right hand).

In the second quarter, Sario threw a behind the back pass in the lane to Amir Johnson, who laid it up.

The Sixers learned a great lesson from a veteran Spurs team that has qualified for the playoffs 20 consecutive seasons and has won five NBA titles in that span.

San Antonio was truly playing with a depleted lineup after competing in the second game of a back-to-back, after Tuesday’s 100-91 win over at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks.

Against the Sixers, veterans Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Kawai Leonard were among the key Spurs getting rest.
