SIXERS JOJO PAINTS 31 POINTS IN 30 MINUTES

By Amy Madsen

Joel Embiid shot 10-of-16 from the field and 11-of-13 from the foul line in the Sixers’ 123-103 win over the Kings, scoring 31 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one blocked shot in 30 minutes.

Embiid attempted just one 3-pointer as he focused on punishing the Kings in the paint.

And the approach paid off, as Kings starting center Domantas Sabonis was limited by early foul trouble.

By the time Sabonis could get untracked, Embiid and the 76ers were ahead by a comfortable margin (they scored 80 points in the first half).

Embiid has scored 30 points or more in five straight and 10 of his last 11 games.
