Joel Embiid torched the Wolves for 39 points (13-for-22 FGs), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, three blocks and four 3-pointers in a 117-94.
The 76ers dominated the final three quarters of this game, which only allowed Embiid to play 28 minutes in this game.
Without James Harden in the lineup, Embiid led Philly to their third straight win, as they now sit a game and a half behind Boston for second place in the East.
39 PTS | 7 REB | 4 AST | 3 BLK
all in 28 minutes. @JoelEmbiid is unreal.
