The Philadelphia 76ers handed the 42nd loss of the season to the Atlanta Hawks after they won the game 129-112. Joel Embiid had a monster performance with a career-high 49 points and 14 rebounds. Hawks’ All-Star Trae Young was impressed.
“To be honest, he’s probably the best big in our league. Super skilled, super strong. When he’s in attack mode, it’s hard to guard him,” Young said after the game.
This season, Embiid is averaging a double-double with 23.8 points and 12 rebounds per game.
