Even if Embiid does return to his normal self on Sunday while helping Philadelphia earn a major win over IN, this still won't take away from the frustration since All-Star Weekend over the knee injury.

After missing eight games, Joel Embiid returned to the Philadelphia 76ers lineup and made his presence felt right away with a dominant display in their 106-89 win over the Indiana Pacers Sunday. He led all scorers in the contest.

Embiid hasn't played since the All-Star Game, where he scored 10 points in 23 minutes.

With the win, the 76ers (42-25) move to into the third seed in the Eastern Conference, winning the season series 3-1.

Both teams now have identical records and are tied in the third place in the East (42-25).
