The Philadelphia 76ers star big man Joel Embiid (24 points and eight rebounds) breaks down his first game back from injury for the 76ers in a 122-113 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night: “It felt great. Just trying to get my rhythm back. I’m going to blame the brace I was wearing. I just felt like I didn’t have my rhythm all game. It felt like I wasn’t smooth. I hate the brace.”
