WATCH: Joel Embiid posterises Celtics off slick pass from Ben Simmons

#Joel Embiid

If you weren't sure the 76ers would bounce back with good energy after a demoralizing loss Thursday, Joel Embiid got rid of those thoughts with authority in Game 3 Saturday.

The 76ers center threw down one of the best dunks of the playoffs right on top of a helpless Aron Baynes in the second quarter.

Check it out:

As amazing as the dunk was, Simmons was pretty darn slick on the pass too.

What made it even better was ESPN play-by-play man Dave Pasch. He rattled off a reference to the 76ers' "Process," which in this case was more than fitting.

The 76ers eventually fell to the Celtics 101-98 in an OT thriller.
