Sixers big man Joel Embiid had the game of his life on Wednesday night, and showed what he can do when fully healthy.
Embiid scored a career-high 46 (!) points on an incredibly-efficient 14-of-20 shooting performance. He also hauled in 15 rebounds and dished out seven assists. Embiid was the total package in Wednesday’s 115-109 win over the Lakers.
He also treated us to a few highlight-reel plays in the game, including this sick Eurostep to blow by Brook Lopez for the bucket.
Embiid also showed that the Hakeem Olajuwon comparisons are valid. Check out this move.
Should Embiid stay healthy during the remainder of the season, the Sixers would likely be on track to make the playoffs — something they haven’t done since the team’s 2011-12 campaign.
