Embiid's 46 leads 76ers past Lakers

Embiid's 46 leads 76ers past Lakers

The beloved comedian from Philadelphia was in attendance for Embiid's unforgettable night in which the big man delivered 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists and seven blocks in the Sixers' 115-109 win over the Lakers in Hollywood (see observations).

Embiid also tweeted "I like Lonzo's shots towards him #TrustIt", further showing he wasn't trying to troll LaVar Ball's oldest son, who finished with 2 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists. The NBA didn't record blocks before 73-74. He seemed able to, at will, get to wherever he wanted on the floor, via a litany of post moves with his back to the basket and facing up. "Embiid is a handful down there and obviously if you get a nice whistle it makes it even more challenging".

Ball isn't as happy as he used to be. Meanwhile, he would add 18 points, 9 rebounds and 10 assists.

For the second consecutive game, prized rookie Lonzo Ball sat out the fourth quarter for the Lakers. I love what he's doing, especially with his own shoe.

Embiid, 23, told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne earlier this week that he "loves" Ball, and that his social media posts are just trash talk.? I just wanted to be aggressive. "I can't wait to keep the same momentum".
