Josh Lewenberg: Pascal Siakam on those plays with Joel Embiid in the 4th: “I’m a competitor. I love competing. This is the playoffs, the highest level. I’m cool with the talking, I just don’t want those dirty plays. I don’t like that. Keep it basketball… At the end of the day, it’s all fake toughness”

Lots from Joel Embiid’s post-game: Will get an MRI tomorrow but says he “imagines” he’s going to keep playing, thought the officials “did a great job,” talked about Toronto’s double teams.

We’ve seen Miami throw so many bodies at Trae Young to bother him
Curious to see the plan on Embiid if that series presented itself
Frustrating him is the key as we see, and Miami has the personnel for that it feels – 4:22 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I fully understand Joel Embiid is frustrated today, but you can’t do that. That’s just silly. – 4:21 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Joel Embiid gets a technical, and Gary Trent Jr. hits Toronto’s 26th free throw of the game. Raptors are 26-32 from the line, Philly is 16-18 – and James Harden has taken 11 of them. Certainly a reversal from earlier in the series, when Toronto was frustrated about FTs. – 4:21 PM
Eric Smith @Eric__Smith
Embiid took a bit of a forearm shot at Siakam…as Pascal called timeout. Play reviewed….
Tech on embiid. Trent hits FT.

Raps are getting too slow in their offence. On the other hand, Pascal Siakam is heading for 44-45 minutes and might pass out. – 4:06 PM

Toronto Doubling Embiid on the flight of the ball. Now it’s a scramble to the shooters. Make them miss. – 3:21 PM
Malcolm Miller @MalcMili13
Embiid has been sealing deeper in the post and making quicker moves on the post up before the double. Early gameplan could be speeding him up – 3:10 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
Joel Embiid had been playing like *the* best player in the league. This version today, in this much apparent discomfort with the thumb, isn’t going to cut it if the Sixers want to win another 13 games. #Turninjuriesoff3:10 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Embiid grabbing his thumb after every play seems suboptimal – 3:04 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Raptors lead 54-49 at half. Combined 33 points from Gary Trent Jr. (17) and Pascal Siakam (16) for Toronto, but the focus for the Raptors will be on whether Fred VanVleet can return from what looked like a flareup of his ongoing knee issues. Joel Embiid had 8 for Philadelphia. – 3:03 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Raps lead 54-49. Embiid is 3-10. Trent has 17, Siakam has 16. Harden and Harris keeping the Sixers in it. – 3:02 PM
Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun
54-49 Raptors at the half. A bunch of key players are in pain, including, but not limited to VanVleet, Embiid, Barnes. – 3:02 PM
Eric Smith @Eric__Smith
Embiid misses under the tin / knocked away. Winces. Noticeably in pain and favoring his thumb.
Sixers have battled back from down 12 to cut it to 5 – 3:01 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Embiid was grabbing that thumb in pain after the ball was knocked away under the basket a bit ago. But he’s staying in the game. – 3:00 PM
Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun
Embiid was either holding his thumb or flexing it from time he missed last shot, to time Anunoby went to free throw line. Even hunched over in pain at one point. – 3:00 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Embiid really holding his thumb after missing the last shot. – 2:59 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Joel Embiid is starting to wake up. Couple of nice moves for him to score here late in the second, including that and-one through two defenders. Philly back within five late in the second. – 2:59 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Maxey’s first bucket comes with less than two to play in the first half. He, Embiid and Harden are a combined 7-of-21 and Sixers trail by just five after that And-1 finish by Embiid. – 2:59 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Gary Trent Jr. is up to 17 points and Pascal Siakam has 16. The Raptors have a 50-38 lead. Timeout Doc Rivers. #Sixers2:52 PM

embiid went to get the ball and thad legit backed away to ensure he couldn’t draw a foul – 2:50 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Interesting. Thad Young is on Embiid, at least for now. He’s got experience guarding bigs but hasn’t done it much with the Raps this season. – 2:48 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Embiid is back in the game at the 7:30 mark of the second quarter, with the Sixers trailing 38-32. – 2:46 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Raps will have Thad as primary Embiid defender for a bit. We will see about that! – 2:46 PM
Malcolm Miller @MalcMili13
Higher pick up points, more ball pressure, extending catches. Toronto doing the little things that will get the W. Corner closeouts and contests are the key. They’re fine with Maxey, Embiid, Harden not beating them. Make everyone else take tough shots – 2:45 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Raptors were +6 in Embiid’s 4.5 rest minutes. Much better, and some good stuff from Boucher and Thad Young over that stretch. – 2:45 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Embiid back in. Raps go 14-8 in 4:30 without him. – 2:45 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps

Here comes the Harden-Maxey second-quarter minutes with Embiid on the bench. Might be particularly crucial today, considering Embiid is 0-for-5 to start. – 2:39 PM
Malcolm Miller @MalcMili13
Double Embiid from the nail back to the basket. Full rotate out. Philly sends a cutter to move the nail double. Will probably start to send 2 cutters to give Embiid more time back to the basket. Looks like Toronto is plays solo on the face up – 2:33 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Embiid missed all 5 of his 1st-quarter shots and has 1 point in 11 mins. Thumb MAY be bothering him, but remember, he was quiet in the 1st half the other night before going off in the 2nd, presumably with same thumb injury. The issue for the Raps: non-Embiid Sixers are 5-9 from 3 – 2:31 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
The score was tied at 24 after one quarter. The Sixers shot 36.4% with Embiid going 0-for-5. – 2:31 PM
Eric Smith @Eric__Smith
Tied at 24 at the end of the 1st.
Crowd is more amped than Wednesday (due respect to the Wednesday folks)…hyped by Scottie’s return (& his ROY)…a solid start for Siakam…Embiid’s 1 point in the 1st…and, hey, the need for the 6th man noise in the 3-0 hole.
👍💪🦖 – 2:31 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers 24, Raptors 24 at the end of the first. Sixers shot just 8 of 22 from the floor but went 5 of 10 from deep. Harris has 7 points and 3 rebounds. Embiid is 0-of-5 from the floor and has 1 point and 2 boards. Harden is 2-of-5 from the field (both 3s). – 2:29 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Very fun quarter as it turns out, 24-24
Siakam’s got 10, Embiid’s missed all five FGAs – 2:28 PM

Embiid is shooting 0-5. – 2:26 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Tough start for Embiid: 0-4 from the field on some good looks. Maybe that’s a slow start, maybe that’s a lack of touch with the thumb injury.
Sixers still in a decent spot, though. Harris continues what has been an excellent series for him. – 2:24 PM
