Sixers’ superstar Joel Embiid is awestruck as he sees Kawhi Leonard dunk over Derrick Favors during his post-game interview.
The Philadelphia 76ers did not have the best night, as they lost 103-100 to the Hawks. With this loss, the series is now tied at 2-apiece. Joel Embiid scored 17 points and grabbed 21 rebounds, but had an abysmal night from the floor. Trae Young dominated the game with his 25 points and 18 assists.
On the other hand, the Clippers look to be in control over the Jazz. After having a solid 29 point lead in the first half, the Jazz have chipped and cut it to 17 points.
Kawhi Leonard leads the way with his 29 points and 7 rebounds. Paul George and Marcus Morris Sr. also have chipped in with 22 each. Kawhi came out of the game in the final quarter with a knee problem, but he assured us all that he’s fine for Game 5.
For the Jazz, Donovan Mitchell is playing at his usual excellent level. He has 33 points, and this is the 6th straight playoff game where he has scored 30 or more.
Joel Embiid is wowed by the Kawhi Leonard dunk
In the final minutes of the first half, Kawhi Leonard put Derrick Favors on a poster, as he had an emphatic dunk. It was the kind of dunk that makes highlight reels and season top-10 lists. All of NBA Twitter melted down at the Klaw’s awesome poster.
Joel Embiid, who was answering questions in his post-game conference, saw the dunk as Kawhi attempted it, and was instantly in awe. He stopped answering his question midway and talked about the poster instead.

That one poster would be one that Favors would not forget anytime soon. As for the Clippers, they would hope to win this game and make their way back to Salt Lake City with the series all tied up.
