Good company for Embiidplay1:45Embiid’s career-high 50 lead 76ers to win

Joel Embiid drops a career-high 50 points to go with 17 rebounds as the 76ers defeat the Bulls 112-105.

The only 76ers’ centers to score 50 points in a game: Moses Malone, Wilt Chamberlain and Embiid. Embiid joins Russell Westbrook, Michael Jordan and James Harden as the only players with multiple games of 45 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists since the NBA-ABA merger. Wendell Carter Jr. and Thaddeus Young weren’t much help defensively against Embiid, allowing him to score 40 of his 45 half-court points.

And unlike Murray, Embiid racked up free throws, scoring 15 points from the line.
