As dominant a game in the NBA as I’ve seen all season tonight from Joel Embiid. Just destroyed the Hornets. Killed them on the block. Had some impressive grab-and-go stuff, and had 7 assists. Overall, 43/15/7 line, and the 76ers needed every bit of it for an OT win in Charlotte. pic.twitter.com/vaLuoJ3XXn12:50 AM

John Karalis @John_Karalis
Tonight saw losses by the Wizards, Hornets, Heat, and Cavs, which means Boston jumps into 6th. If they beat LA tomorrow, they’ll jump into a tie for 4th with Miami/Washington.
The C’s are encouraged by still being in the mix after all their struggles:

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
“That’s what I have to do. My teammates and my coaches, they trust me to put me in those situations.”
The Sixers fended off the pesky, undermanned Hornets Monday night. And naturally, Joel Embiid pushed them across the finish line.

Joel Embiid: “Especially the last two games, really imposed myself inside.”
“I gotta get easy ones. And easy ones doesn’t necessarily mean getting drop-off passes from my teammates. It means I gotta work harder to get deeper position on that block.” pic.twitter.com/rsqYtUH5nJ11:30 PM

Believe Joel Embiid dropped “fiancée” tonight when talking about his family post-game, which I’m not sure was known? Either way, good for him. – 11:20 PM
Charlotte Hornets @hornets
“Fantastic effort. I’m just so proud of them… with another man down, take these guys to overtime, have a shot to win it, I couldn’t be prouder of the group. Their spirit, their resiliency, it’s who they are. It’s not going anywhere.” – James Borrego

If the 76ers let this season ride out without trading Ben Simmons for someone who can help Joel Embiid win right now, it should be considered organizational malpractice. PHI has to do all that it can to avoid letting some stalemate result in them squandering these dominant years. – 9:59 PM

Sixers win, 127-124. I would say start the getaway bus but they’re playing here again on Wednesday.
Joel Embiid, who couldn’t buy a jumper the entire season, completely bailed the Sixers out with some insane shotmaking down the stretch: 43 points, 15-20 FG, 12-14 FT – 9:41 PM

Dan Burke, @Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach, on this 76ers team:
