Joel Embiid led the Philadelphia 76ers into the NBA Eastern Conference playoff semi-finals on Tuesday with 23 points in a 122-120 blowout against the Brooklyn Nets.
After an ill-tempered Game Four where Embiid was at the centre of a mass brawl, the Sixers ruthlessly dispatched Brooklyn to claim a 4-1 series victory at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center.
The Sixers, who will now face the Toronto Raptors in the next round, were always in control after surging into a 17-point lead at the end of the first quarter.
They led 60-31 at half-time as Brooklyn's challenge effectively collapsed.
Embiid was again immense for Philadelphia, hauling in 13 rebounds to go with his points tally.
