Joel Embiid got 23 points (one trey), 14 boards, four assists and three blocks in Fridy’s 100-99 win over the Hornets.
He beasted Dwight Howard all game and is really paying dividends for owners who drafted him. We’ll note Embiid shot 6-for-11 from the line and has been quite Dwight-like the last two weeks, shooting just over 60 percent. Maybe’s he’s a little tired after playing so many games, or maybe it’s a bit of randomness. Either way, keep throwing him out there, especially that’s he’s playing in both games of back-to-backs now. Ben Simmons complemented Embiid with 15 points, eight rebounds and six assists.
