As Nerlens Noel made his return to Philly and received a start for the Pistons, he went up against old friend Joel Embiid. They discussed their friendship and how close they are. #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2023/01/11/six… Street @SixersWire10:42 AM

Joel Embiid on playing against Nerlens Noel: “It was good, that’s my guy. Obviously a lot of good years with him, it’s good playing against him. He got me a few times with him reaching, so I was kind of pissed about it because that’s all he does defensively.” – 10:17 PM

Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2

Not sure if I had a Nerlens Noel 3-pointer on my bingo card for this season, but here we are. – 8:02 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann

Nerlens Noel came into tonight with two made 3s in his NBA career.
He just pulled two in three possessions, knocking down one of them. – 7:59 PM

Nerlens Noel 3 to stop the Pistons’ five-minute scoring drunk? Sure. – 7:58 PM

Not something we’ve seen a ton this year but we have seen it from time to time since maybe Xmas… Embiid spotting up in a corner to space floor for Harden. Jo drives and draws a foul on his old buddy Noel. pic.twitter.com/dU3RRF8D6z7:52 PM

Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2

Noel made that way harder than it needed to be, but he gets the reverse layup to go lol. He’s playing really well so far. He has a steal and he’s drawn an offensive foul on Embiid. – 7:15 PM

Justin Grasso @JGrease_

Nerlens Noel on the #Sixers before tonight’s game:
“I genuinely am happy for everybody here. From Joel to even… I’m proud of Sam Hinkie and what he was able to start. He doesn’t get enough credit for it. So yeah, just I’m proud of everybody that’s doing well here.” – 7:06 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

#Pistons center Nerlens Noel, a former Sixer, on Joel Embiid: “I don’t know why he’s not higher up there in the MVP votes. Somehow the media does n’t show enough love, but you can see it every time he’s out there, he gives his all. ” – 6:49 PM
James EdwardsIII @JL Edwards III

Piston starters: Hayes, Ivey, Bey, Knox and Noel.
Hearing Beef Stew, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury, is a late scratch. – 6:48 PM

More on this storyline

I don’t think Alec Burks is going anywhere. I also don’t think Saddiq Bey does, though he may be more likely than the first two. Nerlens Noel is the only player I see getting traded, and that’s not even a guarantee. Teams may just wait to see if he gets bought out.” -Street The Athletic /January 11, 2023

The No. 6 pick in the 2013 NBA draft, Noel helped Embiid through injuries and gave him pointers in order to help him succeed. As he made his return to Philadelphia on Tuesday, he reminisced on his time with the franchise. “Philadelphia is like a second home to me,” said Noel. “I got a lot of memories here. Lots of relationships from Joel, especially. Having him come in and helping him learn a couple of early-on things when he was a rookie being a year or two after him. I took a lot of pride in that and helping him build the foundation that he has today.” -Street Sixers Wire /January 11, 2023

Noel drew the start on Tuesday with Detroit being down both Isaiah Stewart and Jalen Duren and he drew the assignment of Embiid. He got to the big fella a bit early with a steal, but Embiid ended up going for 36 and 11 rebounds in the win for the Sixers. “It was good,” Embiid said afterward of facing Noel. “That’s my guy. Obviously, a lot of good years with him. It’s good playing against him. He got me a few times with him reaching so I was kind of pissed about it because that’s really all he does defensively, but I’m just glad to him get minutes.” -Street Sixers Wire /January 11, 2023
