Sixers' Joel Embiid in article:"I'm trying to win a ------- title"

“Once I’m holding that [NBA championship] trophy in my hands, maybe I’ll be back to my charming self.

The Sixers headed into Wednesday’s game with a 25-16 record and in a disappointing sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings.

“I’m going to be back,” said Embiid, who had what appeared to be a protective wrap on his left hand Wednesday.

The coach was asked if he would prefer Simmons to post up the defender or drive to the basket.

“I thought in the first half [Monday at Indiana] there was a dominant, just like tank mentality that he was going to dunk on anybody in front of him.

Simmons led the Sixers in that game with 24 points to go with 14 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 steal, with just 2 turnovers.
