Joel Embiid continues to impresses

This was the 31st NBA career game for Joel Embiid, and he looked amazing. He contributed 18 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, and one block in 27 minutes. He shot 46.7 percent from the field, zero percent from beyond the arc, and 77.8 percent from the free throw line.
