This is Joel Embiid's town now

There's a new sheriff in town.

Forget Carson Wentz.

Wentzylvania? Left town for the offseason.

Claude Giroux? Looks like another case of next year.

This town now belongs to Joel Embiid.

The Sixers big man now has shown he can recover from a bad start.

He had nothing working yesterday in Milwaukee, but he kept banging and once again dominated in the second half, leading the Sixers to a 113-104 win.

That makes 6 wins in their last eight games for Brett Brown's squad.

Last week Embiid joked about the possibility of the Sixers making the playoffs.

No one is laughing now.

Here is the game story.
