Joel Embiid is a center but he has the ability to be a playmaker as well. With James Harden out of the lineup, the Cameroonian made team-high 7 assists (along with Tyrese Maxey) in the 76ers’ win over the Pacers.

After the game Embiid said that it is fun for him to be playmaking but he does not have to do that when Harden is playing.

“I feel like, if I wanted to be a playmaker, I could be,” he said, per Gina Mizell. “But I don’t need to, because I’ve got the best playmaker in the league. In the games that he doesn’t play, I take on that role and it’s fun.”

This season Embiid is averaging 33.5 points, 10.2 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 34.9 minutes per game.
