Joel Embiid said that with defenses aggressively double-teaming him this season, he's "not even allowed to dribble the ball." "[Defenders] just come on the catch, and it forces me to give it up," he said. Tracking data from NBA.com reveal that Embiid is actually holding the ball slightly longer this season, at 2.7 seconds per touch, and his total possession time (2.9 minutes) is identical to 2020-21. He's shooting 43.5% from the field but is at a career-best 39.4% from deep, and it's only a matter of time before he regains his touch inside the arc. There's another silver lining, too, since the constant double-teams have allowed Embiid to dish a career-high 4.0 dimes per game.
