Pacers coach Rick Carlisle calls Embiid a ‘walking NBA cheat code’ after the Sixers destroyed the Pacers on Saturday night
Joel Embiid scored 31 points on 10-of-15 shooting from the floor with seven rebounds and seven assists to lead the Sixers to a 141-121 win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night.
To note, Embiid did all of his damage in Indiana in just three quarters. He didn’t step foot on the floor in the 4th quarter for the second straight game, and the third time over the last four games.
After the game, Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle was in awe of Embiid and what he has been doing on the basketball court this season, stating that he’s probably the MVP and he’s basically a “walking NBA cheat code” right now.

The Sixers have now won eight-straight games and are in a second place tie with the Boston Celtics and just 2.5 games behind the East-leading Milwaukee Bucks.
The Sixers will look to win their ninth straight game tonight as they host the Chicago Bulls in South Philadelphia.
His major negative is his body. If he learns to tend to the up keep better there’s no telling what he will accomplish.
