Embiid brings 'theatrics,' dominates Gasol in win

PHILADELPHIA -- With his 76ers taking a 2-1 series lead over a Toronto Raptors team led by Kawhi Leonard and his 37.7 points per game average in the Eastern Conference semifinals so far, coach Brett Brown was asked a simple question.

Embiid certainly looked the part Thursday night, posting 33 points, 10 rebounds, five blocks and three assists in Philadelphia's 116-95 win.

He scored 24 points on 6-for-12 shooting when Gasol guarded him Thursday, including 3-for-3 on 3-pointers and 9-for-9 from the foul line, according to research by ESPN Stats & Info.

Outside of Leonard's 33 points on 13-for-22 shooting, Philadelphia held the rest of the Raptors' roster to just 62 points on 36.1 percent from the field.

"He's a dominant big," Lowry told ESPN.
