Last night the Hawks fell to the Philadelphia 76ers and Joel Embiid had a career night pouring in 49 points and grabbing 14 rebounds.

The Hawks made a few trades at the deadline to prevent that exact situation, getting torn up by an opposing big man, and while Clint Capela is still sidelined for now, Hawks GM Travis Schlenk admits he'd have made a difference if he was able to defend Embiid last night.

"Last night he would have been a help in the lane guarding Joel. When Joel's motivated he's extremely skilled, he's a tough cover."
