Triple H Rings The Bell For Philadelphia 76ers Playoff Game; Sixers Lose

The friendship between Joel Embiid and Triple H went to a new level on Sunday as Triple H rang the bell for the Philadelphia 76ers playoff game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Embiid has spoken highly of his love for D-Generation X and Triple H in the past, even performing crotch chops after drawing an "and-one" on an opponent. Triple H has taken notice of Embiid's shouts to DX during the playoffs, starting a Thrust The Process hashtag.

Embiid was a game-time decision with a knee injury for Game One against the Hawks, but he was ready to play a different kind of game in the pre-game intro.

Trae Young, who must've been a WCW fan, was not impressed as he dropped 25 points to help the Hawks build a 20-point lead at halftime.

The Sixers responded in the second half, but still lost 128-124. Embiid finished with 39 points in the game.

Philadelphia now trails the series 0-1, but remember Sixers fans, it's a seven-game marathon, not a sprint.
