NBA Wrap: Horror fall stuns teammates; Joel Embiid takes a seat to watch ...


The night only got worse for the Thunder from there, going down 119-117 to a Timberwolves side who were led by 40 points and 10 rebounds from Wiggins in Ryan Saunders’ first game as Minnesota’s interim coach.


Philadelphia rookie Landry Shamet was putting on such a stellar shooting display that Joel Embiid took a seat in the second row to watch it with the rest of the 76ers fans.


The Philadelphia big man also claimed yet another double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead the 76ers to a 132-115 rout of the Washington Wizards.


Embiid, Simmons and Butler rested for most of the second half as Shamet took a leading role with JJ Redick sidelined for the first time this season.


Murray wasn’t bothered though, he made the second from the stripe to finish off Miami 103-99 on a night where centre Nikola Jokic was again the star for the Western Conference leaders, dropping his fourth triple-double of the season with 29 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.


Oklahoma City Thunder big man Nerlens Noel was stretchered off the court in front of his home crowd after a nasty fall he took when protecting the rim on an Andrew Wiggins drive.
