John Collins (left ankle sprain) and De’Andre Hunter (right thigh soreness) will not return to tonight’s game per Hawks PR. – 8:22 PM

It was interesting to hear both Trae Young and Joel Embiid talk about the same play tonight — Embiid’s steal of Young’s attempted pass to John Collins in the closing moments of the game — and get their different perspectives on how it went down: pic.twitter.com/v2IQXrLfUU11:02 PM

Joel Embiid’s final stretch, down one: Hits a step-back jumper for the lead, baits Trae Young into a massive turnover, makes two free throws, successfully talks trash to John Collins on the free-throw line and makes one more free throw.
Sixers win, 104-101. They are 12-9. – 9:29 PM

Yet another massive defensive stop for the Sixers, Embiid retreating to the rim to deflect a lob from Trae Young to John Collins.
Embiid at the line for 2 free throws to make it a 3-point game with 5 seconds to go.
This defense is unbelievable right now. – 9:21 PM

John Collins is engaging the crowd as he heads to the bench.
An Embiid play for a block on Collins at the rim is being reviewed for a flagrant (on par for this crew tonight), although it will remain as a common foul. – 9:06 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Georges Niang and John Collins just got double techs.
This should not be a flagrant foul, imo. – 9:04 PM
