Joel Embiid Impresses in Sixers Debut

Joel Embiid began the night as nervous as he has ever been. But by the end of his highly anticipated pro debut, Embiid was showered with chants of “Trust the process!” while already becoming the 76ers‘ go-to player.

Playing in his first regular-season NBA game after missing his first two seasons due to two surgeries on his right foot, Embiid drew oohs and aahs from a sellout Philadelphia crowd — even on missed shots — by flashing the versatile potential that made him the third overall pick in 2014 out of Kansas. Embiid didn’t disappoint, finishing with 20 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in a 103-97 Sixers loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday. In 28 games with the Jayhawks, Embiid never scored 20 points in a game.
