When the 76ers star narrowly missed a shot from deep against the Lakers on Sunday, teammate Joel Embiid had a hilarious reaction.
“I saw the ball go over, and then I was like, ‘Oh, s—,'” Embiid said after Philadelphia’s 143-120 win. “It caught me off guard. And then I’m like, I’m in the position where I’m like, ‘What just happened?’ But I thought it was in.”

Simmons hasn’t connected on a 3-pointer in his NBA career but the second-year star is still a triple-double threat every game.
Simmons had a cold shooting night against Los Angeles. He only connected on three of his 13 shots for eight points.
Philadelphia has now won two straight games since Tobias Harris joined the team after he was acquired from the Clippers.
