"The Process" completed the complicated combination in the closing seconds in the first quarter of the Sixers' 132-127 triumph on Wednesday at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix.
Sixers guard Zhaire Smith passed to Embiid at the top of the 3-point arc at the start of the play. Embiid drew Devin Booker on defense before blowing by the Suns guard. He took a dribble just in front of the paint before hitting Suns swingman Richaun Holmes with a shake-and-bake hesitation move.
Embiid then finished with a strong, right-handed slam over the Suns' 6-foot-10 forward/center. The flush gave the Sixers a 44-30 advantage with 18 seconds remaining in the frame.
"The Process" had a game-high 42 points and 18 rebounds in the win. Booker led the Suns with 37 points and eight assists.
