Second best scorer in the NBA, Joel Embiid has again led the Sixers to success against Portland (108-95). Meanwhile, Pascal Siakam could not over impress during the Raptors' loss against the Wolves (126-128).
Mixed fortunes for the two Cameroonian stars of the NBA. While Joel Embiid continues to shock the counters at each of his outings, Pascal Siakam has sometimes known difficult nights. Such was the case last night during the defeat of Toronto against Minnesota (126-128). The native of Douala had difficulty in setting the target. Clumsy, he wanted to force his shot and in the end, Spicy P finished with 13 points at 6/16. However, he was able to compensate with his vision (9 assists) and his energy under the circle (7 rebounds).
Toronto who will receive Boston on Saturday night remains in 11th place in the Eastern Conference with 20 wins and 26 losses. Philadelphia on the other hand recorded its 29th success by coming to the end of Portland (108-95). As every night, Joel Embiid has greatly contributed to the victory of his team. The native of Yaounde finished top scorer of the game with 32 points. He also grabbed 9 rebounds and 3 assists. He also became the 8th best counter in the history of the franchise with 600 counters. The Sixers are now third in the East with the same number of wins as the Bucks (2nd).
