James Harden Reveals Just How Important Joel Embiid Is

Heading into Game 3 of their second round series against the Miami Heat, the Philadelphia 76ers were desperate for a win. They had lost the first two games and it was becoming clear that this team is just not very good without Joel Embiid. James Harden has fallen off of a cliff in terms of his skill, and the Sixers basically needed Embiid back or else this would be a sweep.

Last night, the Sixers got their wish as Embiid returned to the floor. While he didn’t score a ton of points, he still had a massive impact on the game as he helped his Sixers teammates win and bring the series to 2-1.
