Joel Embiid was asked if he believed the Philadelphia 76ers have an offensive identity and replied candidly.
"No, we don't," Embiid said. "Spacing is an issue. Sometimes we play fast, sometimes we play slow. But at the end of the day when you think about it, and as we are trying to get ready for the playoffs also, the game slows down and it becomes a halfcourt game. That's where we struggle the most. Hopefully, we do a better job in the next three games before [the] All-Star [break]."
Embiid believes the Philadelphia offense worked better last season.
"When you look at how we played last year, obviously different structure, the ball movement was better. This year we've got different players, I've sacrificed a lot trying to make everybody feel comfortable," Embiid said. "And that's normal, we all got to sacrifice, if it means taking [fewer] shots just to make sure everybody's happy and we keep winning, that's what we got to do. But at the same time, we still got to understand what's going on around us and how we can help each other be better."
