NBA: Monstrous Embiid with Philadelphia



Joel Embiid panicked the counters this Saturday during Philadelphia’s success against Indiana in the NBA (133-120). Paul George also impressed with the Los Angeles Clippers against Sacramento (117-98).

Saturday night in its hall at the Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia unsurprisingly dominated Indiana (133-120) thanks to its All Star duo Embiid-Harden. Once again monstrous, the Cameroonian pivot split a high-flying double-double with 41 points and 20 rebounds! His sidekick for his part also signed a double-double but in a very different style (22 points – 14 assists). This success maintains the hope of the Sixers, 4th, to finish the regular season in 3rd position in front of Boston in the Eastern Conference. As a reminder, all the teams will play their last match this Sunday. Joel Embiid and others will receive the Detroit Pistons, eliminated from the race for the play-offs for a very long time.

During the night from Saturday to Sunday, like Joel Embiid, Paul George also impressed. With a well-made double-double, brushing the way to the triple-double (23 points, 12 assists, 8 rebounds), the former Pacers equaled his career assist record with 12 offerings to his partners. He showed the way to the Los Angeles Clippers, very happy to chain a 4th victory in a row at the Arena at the expense of the Sacramento Kings (117-98). Rather discreet, the Frenchman Nicolas Batum, however, participated in this success with 5 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists in 26 minutes on the floor.

In the other meetings of the night, the Golden State Warriors took the measure of the San Antonio Spurs without its “Splash Brothers”. Stephen Curry still injured and Klay Thompson rested, it was the Congolese Jonathan Kuminga who took matters into his own hands, returning a copy of 18 points and 4 rebounds. This result keeps the Californians in 3rd position ahead of Dallas in the Western Conference. At the same time, the Memphis Grizzlies showed no mercy with the New Orleans Pelicans (141-114) with no less than three players at 20 points or more. Among them, the inevitable Ja Morant, in the race for the title of MVP, validated 21 points and 9 assists.
