Joel Embiid vs Lakers, Nov 15

76ers won in LA, 115-109.

Embiid finished with 46 points, 15 rebounds, 7 assists and 7 rebounds.

Simmons supported with 18 points, 9 rebounds, 10 assists and 5 steals, falling just short of a triple double.

Lakers were in touch and even had the lead near the end, but Philly settled and took the road win.

Not a bad game for younger players - Ingram had 26 for the Lakers and Kuzma had 24.

I love how he taunted the Clippers bigs the other night. Adds entertainment value on top of his superior play!

Did Lonzo play poorly again?

Lonzo had a shocker.

Lonzo needs to start that jumper back from scratch. Maybe try with the offhand or something.

Simmons meanwhile is basically doing everything that the Lakers thought Lonzo would do.

Bogey with his most productive game of the year! I might have written him off too early.

46, 15, 7 & 7 is Shaq like numbers. Impressive by Embiid.

I can't recall a time where there were this many legit superstars in the making all together, all 22 or under

Watching Embiid is like watching some custom player on a video game. He's ridiculous

We've definitely entered the next "2003 Draft" phase of the NBA, and interestingly these guys are all hybrid bigs. I hope they stay healthy.

The move at 5:08 made me feel things I haven't felt in a while

Funny that since Embiid plays himself on NBA2K!

Does he play for the Cameroon national team?

Gotta love that the international flavour of the NBA and how the talented up and comers aren't American

well done Joel, now can you tell us how we are meant to pronounce your name

Philly basketball fans must be happy - Villanova 2 years ago now the 76ers going strong.

Manu I know it's the NBA but surely that move at 5.08 is just a straight up travel. Starts pivot on right foot outside free throw circle and then lifts his pivot foot off the ground and puts it down again inside the circle. He was amazing either way!

Kr, I didn't see a travel at all. Kept the same pivot the whole time

Lifted the pivot foot once but that was when he dribbled the ball
