In a standout performance, Joel Embiid showcased his multifaceted skills, recording his 2nd triple-double of the season and 7th of his career. The star center led the Philadelphia 76ers to a convincing 110-97 victory over the Chicago Bulls, finishing the game with an impressive stat line of 31 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists.

Maxey and Harris Shine in Support

While Embiid took the spotlight, Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris played crucial roles in the victory. Maxey contributed 21 points and 5 assists, while Harris added 20 points and 8 rebounds. The dynamic trio combined for 72 points, proving to be a formidable force for the 76ers.

DeRozan’s Efforts Not Enough

Despite a solid performance by DeMar DeRozan, who tallied 16 points for the Chicago Bulls, it wasn’t sufficient to overcome the 76ers’ dominance. The Bulls struggled to contain Embiid and failed to secure a victory, falling to the 76ers with a final score of 110-97.

Historic Milestones for Embiid

Joel Embiid’s stellar performance not only secured the win but also propelled him into the record books. With 5 triple-doubles of 30 points or more, Embiid now holds the 2nd most in 76ers franchise history, surpassing Charles Barkley. Only Wilt Chamberlain stands ahead with 15 such impressive performances.

Unprecedented Streak for Embiid

Embiid’s consistency and excellence were further highlighted by his 14 consecutive games with 30+ points and 10+ rebounds. This remarkable feat puts him in elite company, as only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain have achieved a similar streak in NBA history. Abdul-Jabbar had a 16-game streak from February 2, 1972, to March 1, 1972, while Chamberlain’s incredible run spanned 65 games from November 4, 1961, to February 22, 1962.
