The Philadelphia 76ers managed to win Game 6 against the Atlanta Hawks, despite the fact that Joel Embiid had an off night in terms of shooting the ball. What matters is that the 76ers got the win, and will now get to go back home for Game 7 in Philadelphia.
Joel Embiid has claimed that he would be better in Game 7. In Game 6, Embiid shot 9-24 but finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds. There's no doubt that playing in front of the home court will help a player like Embiid, who often feeds off the energy of the fans, and he mentioned the home crowd in his statement.
There's no question that Joel Embiid has been dominant all season and for the majority of the playoffs. He is one of the best big men in the game, and he is a menace on both ends of the court, scoring well inside while protecting the rim on the other end. Hopefully, Joel Embiid will bounce back from his off night, and Game 7 looks like it could be one of the best games of the playoffs.
