Embiid finished with 27 points (9-18 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 9-11 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and four blocks in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 114-112 loss to the Celtics. Embiid capped off his second full season with a dominant performance in the narrow Game Five loss. Embiid lived up to the hype, for the most part, this season despite the odd injury. His major layoff was due to a freak injury as opposed to any setbacks from his previous long-term injuries. This bodes well for his future and if you are looking at grabbing him next season, he is likely to be a borderline first-round player.
Embiid delivered 15 points (6-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds and two assists across 35 minutes during Philadelphia's 103-92 win over the Celtics in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal-round series. Embiid actually served a complementary offensive figure on a night when the trio of Dario Saric, Ben Simmons and T.J. McConnell combined for 63 points. While Embiid's scoring total was a series low, he managed his sixth consecutive double-double, while also posting his best shooting percentage over the last three contests. His contributions will once again undoubtedly play a pivotal role in the 76ers' attempt to avoid elimination in Wednesday's Game 5.
Embiid managed 22 points (10-26 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 19 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 41 minutes during Philadelphia's 101-98 overtime loss to the Celtics in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal-round playoff series. Embiid had trouble with the defense of both Al Horford and Aron Baynes, as his 38.5 percent success rate from the field was his second sub-40-percent tally. However, the 24-year-old now has five consecutive double-doubles dating back to the first-round series against the Heat, and he'll look to help the Sixers avoid a series sweep in Monday's Game 4.
Embiid scored 20 points (8-22 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-6 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 37 minutes during Thursday's 108-103 loss to the Celtics in Game 2. It's his fourth straight postseason double-double, and it's quickly becoming clear that Boston had no answer for Embiid down low. Expect another big performance from him Saturday as the series shifts to Philadelphia for Game 3.
Embiid totaled 31 points (12-21 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Philadelphia's 117-101 loss to the Celtics in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal-round series. Having dominated the Celtics during the regular season, Embiid picked up right where he left off in his first postseason encounter with Boston. His stellar performance was one of the few bright spots for the overmatched Sixers and served as his third consecutive playoff double-double. Embiid also put up a postseason-high 21 shot attempts, and he could be in for a similar level of usage as Philadelphia tries to avoid falling into a 2-0 hole during Thursday's Game 2.
