When defending Joel Embiid, #Suns forward Dario Saric, a former teammate of his in Philadelphia, said you have to take away his midrange, don't be "scared," compete, but added you have to be "a little bit lucky," too. Embiid scored 35 on #Suns in 1st meeting Phoenix won at home.

Dario Saric says his left ankle is a little stiff, but he went through shootaround as he's listed as probable for tonight's game at Philadelphia where he started his #NBA career. Said he'll know for sure about his availibility later tonight before the game. #Suns 1-0 vs. 76ers
