In 30 minutes of play, Joel Embiid scored 31 points (10-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 10-13 FT), grabbed 7 rebounds, dished out sev7 en assists, and blocked 2 shots.
The 76ers have won eight in a row and are in first place in the Eastern Conference thanks to Embiid’s late-season dominance.
He’s now scored 30 points in nine consecutive games, making him a leading candidate for league MVP. On Monday, the first of four games he has scheduled for the following week, he will take on Chicago.

Spin: Embiid dominated the game on both ends of the court and was head and shoulders above everyone else. The 76ers took control of this game early on, which gave Embiid more time to rest in the second half.
After having the best season of his career, Embiid is in the running for MVP. This would be a good thing to happen. If you look ahead to next season, there’s no reason why Embiid won’t be one of the top three picks in fantasy drafts again.

The big man had already scored 30 or more points in six consecutive games heading into Wednesday’s matchup against Cleveland. The Cavaliers had no answer for “The Process,” and Embiid was a game-changer from the get-go.
Embiid is on pace to finish with career highs in points per game (33.5) and field-goal percentage (54.1 percent).
