Embiid Speaks Regarding The Win!
“I’m happy about what we accomplished, but we have a long way to go,” Embiid said. “Now’s the time to lock in and go get the whole thing.”
Philadelphia fans reigned down “M-V-P!” “M-V-P!” chants on Embiid in the first half. Sixers’ hashtag, #Heretheycome was trending. Everything was looking up for the team as they pushed forward to take the win. Philly needs this as all of our teams have been struggling. Fans need a team to root for and now the sixers seem to be that team.
“Home-court advantage helps a lot,” Embiid said. “We’ve been dominant at home; we barely lose here. It means a lot to have the No. 1 seed.”
Let’s Go Sixers!!
#Heretheycome, your 76ers. Cheer them on as they take on Orlando’ Magic as the number one seed in the Eastern Conference, tonight. Can they go the distance? Unlikely, (Philly teams records are a bit of a downer) but we all are pulling for them.
