Sixers big man Joel Embiid taught Aron Baynes a lesson about trusting the process during the second quarter of Saturday’s game with a thunderous dunk.
It happened when Ben Simmons came flying down the court with the ball, and then proceeded to dish it to Embiid with a nice behind-the-back pass. Embiid then finished off the play with authority — dunking all over Baynes, who was attempting to protect the rim.
Embiid managed to throw down the dunk — knocking Baynes down in the process — while absorbing contact and drawing the foul for a three-point play opportunity.
That was one of the best dunks of the playoffs so far. Embiid destroyed Baynes on that play.
