Steve Kerr on Joel Embiid: 'What he did in LA was terrifying'

In the early minutes of the Golden State Warriors' marquee matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers, it nearly looked as if the upstart Sixers would run away with it early.

"They're as explosive an offensive team as there has ever been in this game", Redick said.

He is averaging 19.9 points and 9.3 assists per game. "I came out of the timeout and didn't know the play. You can't play 24 minutes".

Curry rattled in 20 points alone in the third quarter as the Warriors erased a 22-point Sixers lead and quickly accelerated clear of their rivals.

"That was all my fault", Curry said. When Embiid finally returned to the floor, Golden State had cut its 24-point deficit down to just two points.

The Warriors continued their role late into the third quarter, and caught a break when an Embiid chase-down effort went south. The Warriors bounced back the following season with a championship - sort of killing that joke - but Embiid didn't care. Losing to the defending champions 124-116 was a tough pill to swallow for the Sixers when seeing how much they were in control over the first two quarters, but also there is plenty of positive factors to takeaway from the last week. Meanwhile, Curry made up for his mistake by finishing the game with 35 points, five assists, and five rebounds. Embiid's hand in Durant's face was enough of a contest to alter the forward's shot, and as soon as Embiid recognized Durant's attempt was bound to miss, he took off down the floor and finished off Philadelphia's first half explosion exactly the way he started it. Sixers F Robert Covington played in his first game since agreeing to a four-year, $62 million extension on Friday.
