Embiid wrote that he enjoyed competing against “one of the best to ever play” Thursday night following the Sixers’ 108-97 win against the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers.
Sixers rookie Ben Simmons added that it should be obvious to James just how good and promising Philadelphia is.
Per the AP:
Simmons is sure James knows what’s going on in Philly.
“He knows,” Simmons said. “He knows. He’s a very smart guy. His IQ on the court is amazing.”
Philadelphia nearly blew a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter as the Cavs, who never led, got within 95-94 on Kyle Korver’s 3-pointer with 2:25 left. However, the Sixers showed poise down the stretch by scoring the next eight points to seal an impressive win.
