Don't expect a Warriors-type collapse from the Sixers, according to Joel Embiid.
After making a joke about that possibility after a dramatic Game 4 win at Barclays Center, Embiid was caught stopping at Shake Shack for his postgame meal.
Like the gentleman in the video asks roughly 9345298570235 times: Is it over?

Well, none of this should come as a surprise. Embiid, who's been dealing with left knee soreness that caused him to miss Game 3, has been physically imposing his will in the games he has played and has now laughed(!) at two postgame press conferences. He's clearly ruffled the Nets' feathers, causing Jared Dudley to charge at him and Brooklyn's GM to burst into the referees locker room postgame.
He's probably right. But you probably don't want to give the Nets any extra fuel for Game 5, but the Sixers have given them plenty throughout the series and here we are at 3-1.
The Sixers are the villains and they don't seem to care. In fact, it seems to be galvanizing them.
