Sixers’ Joel Embiid remains level-headed ahead of potential series-clinching Jayson Tatum, Celtics Game 6: “We still gotta get one more win”

As the Philadelphia 76ers sit one win away from advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals, Joel Embiid remains level-headed ahead of their potential series-clinching Game 6 against the Boston Celtics. Despite his impressive performance in Game 5, where he scored 33 points and made four blocks to secure the Sixers’first-ever road Game 5 win in a tied series in franchise history, Embiid refuses to get ahead of himself.

“I honestly don’t care. We still gotta get one more win. That’s all I’m thinking about right now,” Joel Embiid said. “And then obviously, you go home, so you’re going to have a lot of energy in the crowd. And we imagine everybody plays better at home, too. I do play better at home. What we did tonight is easier said than done, but we gotta do it again. I’m excited for it.”

Despite the pressure of potentially ending the series on their home court, Embiid remains focused on the task at hand. He understands that winning requires not only individual greatness but also a collective effort from the entire team.

“We all understand that for us to win, I have to be aggressive. But that doesn’t mean shooting shots. It means attacking, creating for others, involving my teammates,” Embiid explained.

Embiid’s leadership has been vital to the Sixers’ success this season, and he has taken a significant leap in that area. As the team looks ahead to Game 6, Embiid’s calm and composed attitude will undoubtedly be a valuable asset.

The Sixers will face off against Jayson Tatum and the Celtics in a potentially series-clinching Game 6, but Embiid refuses to let the hype get to him. “We still gotta get one more win,” he said. And with his level-headed approach and determination, there’s no doubt that Embiid and the Sixers will give it their all to secure that victory.
