Joel Embiid rang up 29 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in the Sixers win over the Cavaliers.
Embiid was listed as questionable, but he played through his foot injury and appeared in an 11th straight game.
Embiid and James Harden each nearly posted a double-double in the first half of what appeared to be a blowout.
Cleveland made things slightly interesting at the end, but this game wasn’t as close as the final box score would have you believe.
Embiid will head into the All-Star break as the NBA’s leading scorer and fantasy’s third-ranked player on a per-game basis thanks to his massive contributions in most categories.
