Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid suited up with an ankle ailment for Friday's game at the Wells Fargo Center, but he still rose for a highlight block on New Orleans Pelicans forward Nikola Mirotic.

With seconds to go before halftime, Mirotic approached the basket, but the Sixers' 7-footer rejected him in the paint and then did a little shimmy shake over him before pointing to the locker room.

Philadelphia took a 56-41 lead into the break.
