Phialdelphia 76ers, legendary night for Joel Embiid

Yet another monstrous night for Joel Embiid, author of 51 points and 12 rebounds in the Philadelphia 76ers’ 113-127 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. An anthology-like performance with 17/25 shooting and 17/18 at the line.

This performance fuels a month of December sumptuous from the Cameroon-born player who is traveling at over 40 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists average with 61% from the field. Only he and Antetokounmpo have signed more than one 50-point game this season.

The one against Minnie was. the 12th consecutive game with more than 30 points and 10 rebounds for Embiid, something not seen since the days of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The contest with the T’Wolves also represented the fifth in a row with more than 35 points scored, something only Wilt Chamberlain and Allen Iverson had previously managed to do in Sixers jerseys.

If, on the other hand, one looks for players capable of scoring 40+10 three times in a row in a Philly jersey one will find only Embiid and Wilt himself on the list.

In short, a legendary run that represents the icing on the cake of a magical time for Joel Embiid.
