Since the Sixers traded for Jimmy Butler they have gone 8-3, outscoring teams by 4.1 points per 100 possessions in that time. Joel Embiid, however, is not comfortable an altered role in a Jimmy Butler world. He said he played like “trash” in his last game and was given Friday night’s game against Detroit off for rest. Embiid’s counting stats are off just slightly since the trade — his offensive and net ratings are up — but from what he told Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer he is not comfortable in a new role that has him on the perimeter more.

The one clear difference between Wednesday night's game and the 22 that preceded it for the Sixers was its stress-free nature - the team finally played a complete game, leading from start to finish in a 117-91 win over the Knicks. The other, more subtle difference is who took Joel Embiid's minutes when the big man went to the bench. Mike Muscala stepped into the backup center role Wednesday night, as Amir Johnson was relegated to the bench until the final eight minutes when he replaced Embiid with the outcome already sealed.
