Current MVP Joel Embiid had another gala night in the NBA. The pivot achieved the best points record for an athlete in the current season.
The Cameroonian scored 70 points in the Philadelphia 76ers’ 133-123 victory against the San Antonio Spurs, at the Wells Fargo Center, on Monday (22).
In Monday’s game, Embiid also recorded 18 rebounds and five assists. Watch the moment when the Cameroonian reaches 70 points, lifting the entire gym.
As a result, this was the best performance of Embiid’s career and the highest scoring performance in Philadelphia 76ers history. Joel Embiid is also the first player since Michael Jordan in 1990 to record 65 points and 17 rebounds in a game.
The Pennsylvania franchise is having an excellent season. The 76ers are in third place in the Eastern Conference, with 29 wins.
