NBA Twitter reacts to Joel Embiid’s return as Sixers beat Hawks


The Philadelphia 76ers welcomed Joel Embiid back to the ground on Monday once they played host to the Atlanta Hawks and the large fella returned in a convincing way by going for 30 points on 9-for-18 shooting with eight rebounds and 7 assists. He made huge plays down the stretch and the Sixers knocked off the Hawks 104-101 in his return.

Embiid was in a position to carry Philadelphia on the night really on each ends. He made two huge buckets late to offer the Sixers the lead, after which on the opposite end, he broke up a lob that Trae Young and Clint Capela run often for the Hawks within the pick-and-roll. The massive fella timed the play perfectly and ruined any probability Atlanta had at taking the lead back.

As usual, NBA Twitter had their best reactions to each the return of Embiid and the best way the Sixers were in a position to get the job done at home.

That’s one hell of a win for the Sixers. Joel Embiid was an absolute monster down the stretch. Encouraging to see Tobias Harris and Shake Milton thrive with Embiid back.
