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. 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 Crypto.com 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.
