Joel Embiid is playing tonight, so it will be a tough game as the Detroit Pistons look to rebound against the Philadelphia 76ers. Detroit is coming off what will hopefully remain its worst game of the season, while Philly is likely already smelling blood after handling Detroit 110-102 earlier this season. In that game, Embiid scored 30 points and added 18 rebounds as Detroit had no defensive answers. Hopefully, tonight will be different.
