Joel Embiid: They call me ‘Clutch’ for a reason

Through the first 10 games of the season Embiid became the fourth player - after Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor and Walt Bellamy - to put up seven 30-point, 10 rebound games. He has earned the confidence of the Sixers to aggressively seek out shots there.

Kelly Olynyk led the Heat with 20 points, but missed most of the fourth quarter with an injury.

"I think he's been playing incredible", Simmons said of Embiid.

Embiid was 1 for 2 from 3 - but it was a critical one that tied the game at 117 in the final minute of regulation. They tried to beat him to spots.

Add a devastating one-point overtime loss in Detroit without Ben Simmons on October 23 that featured Blake Griffin putting up 50 points and 14 boards, and it's clear to see that the road has not been kind to the Sixers through five of their first six games.

Embiid would split the ensuing free throws, capping off what ended up as a 133-132 victory for Brett Brown's team.

Jazz 123, Celtics 115: SALT LAKE CITY - Joe Ingles matched his career high with 27 points and added a season-high seven assists to help Utah beat Boston in Gordon Hayward's return to Utah. The 7-foot center had 15 points in only 17 minutes.

Terry Rozier scored 22 points for the Celtics, while Tatum had 21.

The scoreline from different test matches this year probably shows that not to be right, but I don't think we're that far off. That's really picked up in the back end of the season, our fitness and understanding of how much of a high-paced game it is.

D'Angelo Russell led the Nets with 23 points, and Jarrett Allen had 18. Washington fell to 2-9.

Another Aussie 76er Jonah Bolden scored his first 3-pointer in the National Basketball Association, and finished with five points, four rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes on the court. Bacon, who fouled out in overtime, scored 15 points in only his fifth game of the season. They'll learn as the season goes on, but they need to figure it out quickly, because you can't let too many games slip away from you in this league.

Charlotte is on a 2 game win streak, after they beat the Atlanta Hawks, 113 - 102; Walker: 29 points, 7 assists.

The Nets overcame a big bounce-back night from Denver's Nikola Jokic to win their third straight. The total number of points scored for the over/under is listed at 225, 54.2% have picked the under. Nikola Jokic broke out of a funk to score a season-high 37 and tied a career-high with 21 rebounds, but Denver lost its first home game of the season after winning the first six.

In the Sixers' most recent game, the team suffered an embarrassing loss to the Brooklyn Nets, losing by 25 points.

Ben Simmons has been been lauded for his terrific defense in a game-saving play in an overtime thriller against the Charlotte Hornets at the Wells Fargo Center.

Iman Shumpert scored 17 points, De'Aaron Fox had 16 points and 10 assists and Buddy Hield added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings.
