The 76 Celtics 109-98 beat without an injured embiid

Josh Richardson scored 29 points and Al Horford stepped in to fill an offensive void as the Philadelphia 76ers shook off the absence of Joel Embiid to beat the Boston Celtics 109-98 on Thursday. He has an average of 17.8 points and dominates the glass with a league high of 16.2 rebounds per game this season.

Embiid will be operated on Friday for a ligament tear in one finger in her left hand and examined in a week or two.

Embiid's finger overlapped his pinkie to the point that it seemed he had his fingers crossed. Oh by the way, this was without Joel Embiid as we learned he is going to need surgery on his dislocated finger.

"There were a couple of times I could have grabbed with both hands but I just couldn't".

"I think it kind of gives us a different look when I'm aggressive like that", Richardson said. He was hindered by illness and knee injuries during last season's playoff run, and the Sixers worked this season to balance his minutes with the proper amount of rest.

With Embiid out indefinitely, even deep reserves will have to contribute to keep them afloat until he returns. He was ruled out of Thursday's game against the Celtics on Wednesday.

"When he first fell, we were anxious about the ligaments", coach Brad Stevens said.

Titans to face Chiefs in AFC Championship Game: Date, time, channel
With 10 minutes and 54 seconds left in the second quarter, the Chiefs trailed by 24 points and had just 46 yards of total offense. No. 6 seed Tennessee (11-7) won its second straight road playoff game with a similar approach: feed Derrick Henry .

The tall Cameroonian said after the game that he was "basically playing with one hand", but he was determined to make a contribution when the 76s broke a four-game losing streak.

"I've always been curious how that could be", Brown said. And not for my players. "I wanted to try Ben at five, we did, and I suspect we'll see him again".

The 25-year-old Embiid has been struggling with injuries since moving in with number 3 of the 2014 draft.

He missed his first two seasons with foot injuries and hasn't played more than 64 games in any of the last three.

Embiid then missed the December 31 game against the Indiana Pacers with left knee soreness.

Andre Drummond is unmindful of NBA trade talk and prefers to just play basketball for the Detroit Pistons. He went to the locker room twice to get it treated in the quarter. "What's best for him and his future". "I care for Joel and his future".
