Achieve the Philadelphia 76ers shoe It would very likely be the biggest win of a very good season On Wednesday, but the team had to hold their breath after one game in particular.
Sixers MVP candidate Joel Embiid fell hard in the third quarter against the Los Angeles Lakers. The big guy jumped into the paint and was climbing into submersion when LeBron James pushed him into the midsection, causing him to land with much of his weight on his tailbone.

Embiid has dealt with back issues this season, most of which he missed Monday’s match due to a tight back.
The Sixers stuck in the end and 107-106 won thanks to winner Tobias Harris. Empiid scored 28 points with an 8 of 18 shot with six rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes.
