Joel Embiid Scores Career High 50 in 76ers Win Over Bulls
Joel Embiid once again proves his case for the best player in basketball this season with the best game of his career tonight against the Chicago Bulls. The 76ers defeated the Bulls 112-105 on Friday night, in a game that proved many things about the team as a whole.
First- Joel Embiid is the MVP of the NBA this season. He’s unstoppable. Embiid finishes off his night with 50 points, 17 rebounds, 5 assists, along with 4(!) blocks and 2 steals. This is undeniably the best performance we’ve ever seen from the Big Fella, and he shows again how unguardable he is. He shot 17/26 from the field and 15/17 from the charity stripe. If you aren’t seeing his case for MVP, certainly you have to now.
Tobias Harris was also very impressive tonight, continuing his all-star caliber season with 22 points, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists. Zach Lavine was the brightest spot for Chicago tonight, scoring 30 points along with 5 rebounds and 5 assists.
For the 76ers, this becomes their 2nd win in a row and they move up to 20-10 on the season. Their next game is Sunday, February 21st against the Raptors.
