Paul George may have slipped a little in the MVP conversation the last couple weeks, but that was a big time, big time shot to punctuate a huge fourth quarter. That would have been a devastating loss for OKC and he saved them from it.

There was a pretty obvious theme for the first three quarters: When Embiid is on the floor, the Sixers are better than the Thunder. When he's not, the Thunder are better, and by a good amount.

Clear intent by Billy Donovan to have Steven Adams in when Joel Embiid is. Quick sub on Nerlens Noel when Embiid came back in.
