Joel Embiid made his long-awaited debut on Tuesday vs. the Celtics, scoring six points on 2-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, two blocks in just under 13 minutes.

Embiid missed his first three shots of the night, but finally hit his first bucket with 50.6 seconds left in the first quarter.

"After that first basket, everything kind of opened up," Embiid admitted. "I felt that I had more energy, I felt my mentality changed. I felt like I was free and everything opened up."
