When Philadelphia signed Horford away from the Boston Celtics this past summer as a free agent, bestowing upon him a four-year deal worth $100 million, the hope was that he could both buoy the team when Joel Embiid went to the bench and play alongside him for significant stretches. The first part of that -- despite the noise that has followed Horford all season -- has actually worked out rather well. Philadelphia is outscoring teams by three points per 100 possessions when Horford is on the court , and the Sixers are actually slightly outscoring teams when Embiid is out of the game this season -- after they were famously outscored by 12 points in the three minutes Embiid sat in a two-point Game 7 loss in Toronto in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
But playing alongside Embiid? That has been a disaster. The combination has been outscored by 2.1 points per 100 possessions in 487 minutes together this season. The 98.7 offensive rating the Sixers have when the two of them are on the court together is more than five points worse than the Golden State Warriors' league-worst 103.9 rating this season.
