“Obviously, Wilt accomplished … everything [in] the history of this league, and basketball in general,” Embiid said.

According to ESPN, Embiid added 18 rebounds and five assists. “I had it going. I mentioned a few times, a lot of teammates are extremely unselfish and they just kept giving me the ball, and I just finished it.”


Before the game, Embiid had the Internet laughing once he stood next to Victor Wembanyama for the first time. That height didn’t impact Embiid, but he added 33 points and seven rebounds.
