NBA Twitter Reacts To Joel Embiid’s INSANE 70-Point Game Vs Spurs


In last night’s 133-122 victory over the San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid joined an extremely exclusive group of NBA players, with his impressive 70-point performance.

Exactly 18 years, after Kobe Bryant’s 81-point game – the second highest scoring output in NBA history, behind Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game – the reigning MVP became only the ninth player to reach the 70-point mark in an NBA game. The 29-year-old made 24 of his 41 field goal attempts, as well as 21 out of 23 attempts. Additionally, Embiid secured an impressive 18 rebounds, and dished out five assists.



While Embiid not only set a personal record, he also surpassed legendary big man Wilt Chamberlain with his 70 points and now is the Philadelphia 76ers’ new franchise record holder.


“Obviously, Wilt accomplished … everything [in] the history of this league, and basketball in general,” Embiid said after the game. “So to be in the same conversation, that’s pretty cool.

It was just a great night,” he said. “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.”


As you can imagine, the basketball world was in awe after Embiid’s insane performance. Here’s how NBA Twitter reacted to Embiid’s historical milestone.
