Embiid leads Sixers' 89-80 romp over Irving-less Celtics

The other Eastern Conference starters are Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan and LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Kevin Durant (Golden State) and New Orleans duo Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins make up the West's starting front court. That is elite company by any stretch of the imagination. But Embiid, sharing some wishful thinking, hopes that in the fairly near future he'll be playing every game. The two highest vote getters - Curry and James - will be captains, selecting teams from the pool of players.

It was a tough matchup against Joel Embiid at the five but Horford continues to perform as one of the most well-rounded fantasy bigs in the game.

Andre Drummond is having the best season of his career, but he doesn't space the floor and still gambles quite a bit on defense. In the end, who starts doesn't matter as much as who makes or doesn't make the team.

After Jayson Tatum's corner-3 pulled the game to within seven - bringing his team to single-digit territory for the first time since the first half - the Celtics failed to capitalize.

In between a congratulatory handshake and a hug, Joel Embiid, seated inside the TD Garden visitors' locker room, said he was blessed.

Colts take Bradley Chubb in Mel Kiper mock draft 1.0
He's a ridiculous athlete and really does show some NFL-caliber quarterback skills. "His numbers aren't impressive, I know". Cleveland Browns fans will have their preference at quarterback they'd like to see drafted if they haven't already.

"We feel like we're right there with them", Embiid said. The top three finishers are starters.

Embiid finished third in the fan voting for Eastern Conference frontcourt players. Each player's score will be calculated by averaging his weighted rank from the fan votes, the player votes and the media votes. The next year, Embiid tweeted that he was rejected by a famous girl.

Which lucky celebrity will Embiid have his eyes on next? Marcus Morris and Al Horford were the leading scorers for the Celtics with just 14 points each.

National Basketball Association players and media members do not believe the 21-year-old Australian rookie is worthy and the final decision will be made by National Basketball Association coaches next week.

Porzingis will likely be voted in as a reserve by the head coaches.

Overall, this can be marked down as a throw away game for the Boston Celtics. He also has a timeline in mind for being cleared to play on consecutive nights.
