Embiid’s 37 points couldn’t help the sixers avoid defeat at the hands of Portland. He was the only sixer to reach the 20s which shows why his team lost. Not enough points contribution. The Blazers had 4 players reach the 20s led by Trent Jr with 24. It is Philly’s 7th defeat of the regular season but they still top the Eastern Conference showing no one is really the DOG. With 53 rebounds to the 76ers 37, one could see that Portland had ability to change defense into attack.
