Joel Embiid

Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris thought he had a layup early in Tuesday’s against with the Philadelphia 76ers. Joel Embiid had other ideas.

With the Celtics running, Morris took a pass from Marcus Smart and appeared to have an easy two points. But Embiid came flying in from behind to block the shot in emphatic fashion.

That was not only powerful, but also looked effortless.

Embiid has long been awfully hard to stop on the offensive end. If he can play like this defensively, we can only wish those attacking the rim against the 76ers good luck.
