Joel Embiid: 42 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal
After seeing his 23-game streak with 25 or more points snapped in Tuesday’s blowout loss, Embiid began a new run, notching 40-plus points for the second time in three games.
Midway through the second quarter, the Sixers replaced Matisse Thybulle with Furkan Korkmaz in the starting unit and Embiid feasted amid the four-out spacing. The Bucks routinely sent help on Embiid and Niang was ready to quickly fire open looks, whether he was one pass away or converting a hockey assist from the big fella. Korkmaz made good on that trust and effectively spaced the floor for Embiid to cook.
