Shouldn't have left him off the starting lineup. I'm all in for an Embiid revenge tour!😂
Big facts how tf he not the east starting center 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️ that's a big joke
Never mind “trust the process”. RESPECT THE PROCESS. Joel gives his heart and soul every time. What a win for the 76ers.
The best way to respond to perceived disrespect (MVP vote, not being an All Star starter) is to do exactly what Joel Embiid is doing right now. Masterclass.
That cross over reverse dunk, one on one, was savage
Bro at his size it’s just insane. Especially since you have to think, can you imagine jok ever doing that to him?
That's an MVP performance
@Novak Djokovic jokic is still a better shooter. more effective.
@rb9888 this is not his best game this season. Or last season or the season before. He is the highest scorer in the league for a reason.
While I was watching the game, I was telling my cousin that the last time these two teams met in Philadelphia Embiid won the battle but Joker won the game, and some people think that it cost Embiid the MVP. So, I was saying, this game Embiid needs to win both the Battle and the game. And that was a tremendous effort from both Embiid and the 76'ers. 👏👏👏
I hope he can win MVP this year. This guy has been a top 3 seed, lead the game in ppg, and been one of the leagues best defensive players as a rim protector.
Embiid when he's motivated is a force
Just like Shaq
@Ishyne123 I watch almost every Sixers game n you can tel he’s not motivated sometimes 😂. The problem is he’s STILL dominant even when not motivated.
Motivated??? Y’all act like he hasn’t been ballin like that since last season. This game is not even his best game of the season. He had better games than this.
I guess you can say this with Irving and Ben Simmons but Embiid? LOL. You don't watch basketball, he's probably the most consistent player for the last 2-3 years besides Giannis
I guess he is always motivated since he leads the nba in scoring with 34ppg
This is probably the biggest statement game of the season thus far. God bless The Process, man. What a monster.
I’m a laker fan but man I would love to see this two team battle it out in the finals.
The sequel to the Doctor and Magic/Kareem goin at in the 80s
Two best big man would be a great finals
@Benkei warriors or clippers coming out the west this year
@Benkei uhhhm yeah the defending champ dynasty warriors. It's between warriors or clippers making the nba finals this season
@Gerald Taylor Warriors? Hell no! 😆
When a 7 foot 300 pound man is crossing up players, driving for dunks, and hitting stepback 3s, it's pretty much a wrap.
No one in the league beats him 1v1 I’m convinced at this point
Exactly.. been saying it for YEARS now lol
NBA: “You’re not a starter”
Embiid: “And that’s when it got personal for me”
34-10-4 on 54% shooting and not an all star starter. Snubbed THREE times from first team all NBA. Runner up twice for MVP and once for DPOY. STOP disrespecting this man for gods sake
Yea shoulda been him over Tatum, but Tatums balling too so it's a borderline toss up. KD and Giannis are gonna grab those other spots regardless
@Zac Oh ok I thought you were talking about this game but 34 10 and 4 while being that on 54 percent shooting is insane while being a a contender for dpoy
@Levi Season stats
@Levi those are his numbers on the season is what I’m stating. Absolutely ridiculous to put up 34-10-4, be an elite defender, 2x runner up for MVP, the second seed and not be named an all star starter
He had 47 18 and 5 wdym
If you’re not down with that, Embiid has two words for ya…
@Water Bottle273 that's technically 3 words no?
Is it “I’m gay”?
This was a statement game if i ever seen one
I don't even like Embiid but this was a monster and dominant game. He totally cooked no defense Jokic today sadly.
Why u say sadly its one game jokic will be fine and my nuggets we got second best record on nba and sixers lost to magic tonight 1 game means nothing
@Joe 70% is above Dončić level
@Лука Т. ……you mean 3??? Wow that’s a lot.
@Joe Joel missed a lot of free throws Today😂
@Joe Giannis Runanddunkpo 😂😂😂😂😂.
Give my guy his respect
The people’s MVP
@Secret your Coca Cola drinking idol is a traffic coke on defense. Embiid > Nicocacola Sweptic
S2pid people? Yeah, I agree. 🤡
So much respect to the two-time MVP, but a healthy and motiviated Imbiid is a monster. There's no way Jokic can stop him. And he's doing it on both ends of the floor. Much stronger, quicker and better defender. The only advantage the Joker has (imo) is his passing. Would love to see more duels from these two.
@Montana Mac at least im not cheering for a flopper jeez
@Fahmi Aulia Rachman damn you’re coping HARD. EMBIID is better and proved it the other night. Go cry about it.
@josh n joker is the better playmaker he knows when to shoot or not. On the other hand when Joel goes against a good defender he flopped so hard he might win the oscar
How is he this good 😮
I think Joel wanted to remind to everybody who is the beast in the league. I loved this game because embiid is so disrespected in the NBA
A most exciting month for 40+ games. The gift 🎁 that keeps it coming.
And “supposedly” this guy isn’t good enough to start in the All star game…… put some respect on Embiids name!!!
He looks like the best player in the world right now 😱
@atPOPMUSIC! best player in 5 on 5 is wildly different than 1 on 1.
@YoungBae 518 curry is the best player in the world 🔥 facts
@YoungBae 518 curry defense is good fool and curry has a steal title
@atPOPMUSIC! steph is the best player in the nba that's facts 💯💯💯
Joel for MVP....would be well deserved!!
@Tim Simmons look at you. You’re still coping over the fact that Embiid outplayed your obese point guard
@Joe i forgot who got mvp the last 2 years???? And who has a better record? 🤡🤡
@Joe embiid just lost to a rookie🤣 cry
Simply true MVP
76ers top 3 seed in east. Embid most definitely winning mvp this season and he might win the scoring title back to back
its levels . it been levels. all the vorp in the world cant undue what we all saw today. one passes the ball. and does it well . the other dominates the game on both ends. and been doing that, mans carried ben simmons to the playoffs ....
@Francisco Pizarro because of Embiid. Look at him now alongside KD and Kyrie. Dude can’t even play in the fourth quarter lol. He was always carried by Embiid
To be fair, Ben Simmons was a perennial all star in Philly.
Imagine handing a defensive player of Jokic caliber multiple mvps lmaooooo
@atPOPMUSIC! My boy who? 🤣
@Secret we demolished ur boy . 😢
Joel Embiid keeping on playing with physical and effort to get enough confidences from quickness and becoming a MVP!
This was meaningful after Jokic saying Embiid should have been picked on the allstar starting roster. Respect for Jokic for tellin the truth and respect for Embiid for proving Jokic right. 👏👏👏
Embid shows why his the best Center in the League he dominated jokic on both ends and the only thing jokic got over Embid is passing that’s it
They expertly remove "humiliating the fraudulent MVP" from the title.
This is possibly the biggest beatdown of an MVP ever since 1997 NBA finals
Damn embidd just proved who is the best big man in the game bro he took that all star starter snub personal
Oh my goodness! Give this man the MVP award already
@The Sound of Animals Fighting joel embid just drop back to back 30 vs magic 🔥. Joel embid leading the nba in scoring and averaging 11 rebounds per game. Embid winning mvp fasho
@The Sound of Animals Fighting Mark Jackson was asked who was a better center than Embiid in the NBA and he said 'no one'.
Give him MVP for winning just 1 game vs Nuggets? He got demolished by the Magic after this game lol
@TR Hansen joel embid should win mvp
he has one of the smoothest jumpers in the league.
Embiid proving once again why he’s better than Jokic.
As a Jokic fan gg Embiid 😭
B-Bu-But Jokic has a higher Box Plus/Minus!!! STAT GEEKS ARE CRYING RN
@minnuss there’s not trying and then there’s letting a man drop 47-18-5 on you. Almost doubled Jokic on everything. But hey. At least Jokic’s VORP, PER, BPM, RAPTOR and LEBRON stats were all higher than Embiid’s!!!
@minnuss if he does I bet he beats down Joker again ….
@Trust The Process it's not about the stats, one was highly motivated, and the other was not.
It's one game, will see the result in Denver in the end of the March if Embiid shows up…
@Wiger Toods I love Jokic. Stat geeks just gotta relax
LoL Embid had a good night props to him. He is a force not to be messed with. The only thing I blame Jokić for is not contesting for more shots. He shot 12 times, Embid took 31 shots (Jokić scored 24 and Embid 49). Yes Murray and Hyland did have a bad shooting night (2/7 for three and 1/7 for three), but still Jokić has to put more responsibility when his teammates can't. It wasn't a bad night, but he has to be the main cast in this situations.
That dunk was insane
Embiid baked Jokic 😂😂😂
Embiid is the first center since Shaq to win a scoring title. This season, he's going back-to-back. Add MVP to his name.
Embiid is just showing everybody how an all star reserve should play 😂 It's ridiculous man
Dont give me all these advance stats when you cant even look like an mvp against another player
Embiid is much more watchable when he's not foul-baiting and flopping. He really made Jokic look like a little kid out there.
Embiid be like: Is this your MVP??
The REAL MVP! Let’s not forget about all of Jokić’s advanced metric stats tho 🤣
He deserves an mvp
Embiid is too good i thing that he is in the top 3 best players at the moment
Hopefully, he keeps this same momentum during the playoffs, he needs a chip under his belt to be up there with players like Kareem.
Joel Embiids game is turning into Michael Jordan. Joel Embiid is turning into a 7 foot 2 inch Michael Jordan. If this is what he wants to become than the sixers will win a championship for sure. Embiid needs to continue watching all Michael Jordan past games.
I was saying this 2yrs ago. There game is similar but Embiid 3pt shot is better.
I’m convinced no one in the league beats Embiid in a 1 v 1.
Only thing giannis got is speed and a higher vertical embiid is better at everything else giannis could never do a crossover step back 3
You forgot Giannis who almost get your man career ending by blocking
Embiid is saying he’s the MVP by destroying your MVP😂😂😂
Best big in the league
What more do they want from him?! Give him a damn MVP already
I'm guessing triple doubles since Jokic went on a rampage with those
@Joe its a season game lol im sure he will sleep fine with that mvp trophy
@Ken123168 lmk when Jokic recovers from that absolute ass whooping he just received then we can start comparing 😂
@Joe lmk when Embiid gets his MVP then we will start comparing 🤣
@Ken123168 hey remember when Nicocacola Jokic got swept last year in the playoffs? And remember when he got carried to a WCF in an empty gym by Jamal Murray? Btw Embiid is his father now so you’ll have to accept that.
Isn't it steps? Bec Embiid stops with right foot as a pivot foot, then even jumping on his other foot, NOT step-back. As i know, to count it as step-back he should hold it, while changing foot. (Last possession) Still appreciate him for all game.
Yeah this one was personal for sure especially with him not being named a All Star Starter on top of the disrespect from ESPN
I respect the hell out of Jokić but I would take Embiid over him six days a week and twice on Sundays ya’ll. He’s just more dominant in my opinion and that was a statement - fun game
Twice on Sundays? You do realize that Sunday is a day for rest, right? Not a day for playing basketball. It is Allah's day.
@sunky Embiid bullied him it’s like jokic is like a pinkie of embids finger but there’s a tight schedule but I’m really excited for that 76ers verses Celtics “IF” were healthy man if were healthy Celtics might be looking at a problem
If they match up together… Jokic cannot stop him
Embiid when HEALTHY and MOTIVATED is as good as peak Shaq.
Lol, Jokic can't do 💩 with Embiid like I've been saying, Jokic 😂😂😂😂
Jokic should wear a collar cause embiid owns him.
Embiid gave Jokic that work. He does not want to settle for runner up for the MVP for a 3rd year in a row. That said, Jokic might still hold a slight edge in the eyes of some of the media.
This mvp basketball right here
A guy that big shouldn't have a shot that good. People, rightfully, respect and are amazed by KD's shooting at 7'. Well this dude is like 2" taller and 60 lbs+ heavier, and he shot as well as I've ever seen KD shoot. Embiid just might be the best player in the league, although LeBron still gets that title until someone absolutely proves it for a few years in a row. Embiid just might be that next guy though.
Big man shooting like 🤯🎯 can’t keep him of the paint, can’t keep him on the perimeter smh 🤷🏾♂️
"You Ran your mouth like a tough guy. Hope you can keep the same energy when it's crunch time" Joyner Lucas
@wretched excess you got that right. Embiid killed it.
Playoffs sixers always taken down in 2nd round.
you mean like how Embiid led them to a comeback in the fourth quarter, in crunch time?
Healthy Embiid over a healthy Jokic all day any day.
And yet he’s not in the starting lineup for the all star game
He will replace kd
Embiid > Jokic got to be aggressive!!! Centers are suppose to be glad y’all waking up
Cooked tf outta jokic Ngl
Is this the good jokic defence ive been hearing about?
completely cooked jokic tonight and i say this as a huge jokic fan
MVP. Just obliterated jokic
Jokic can’t mess with Embiid. It’s not close. The media fell in love with Jokic but he can’t deal with Embiid, no center can.
Legend shit man.
Embid was putting jokic in the blender fr
i cant even imagine if it was jokic with these stats against embiid
they would have said he was the best player of all time over jordan and lebron lol
glad embiid exposed the ovverated by the media
embiid would destroy Jokic if they were playing one on one.
If they play one on one 10 times embiid will beat him 10 times
Embid better than jokic and Anthony Davis
Jokic is only high iq and passing ability that's it to matchup with Embid he teamp player not iso I 🤔
He destroyed him every time he had Jokic on him this game. Jokic really has no defense, he was struggling to even move his feet.
if embid leads the league in scoring why the media treat him like a benchwarmer
joel was the original, wembaya can emulate this
And fans choose not to vote him for the starting 5 in ASG!
Double the points of Jokic, and more than double the rebounds
@NationOfAfrica Just say 'uncle' next time.
@NationOfAfrica I can see you are now in full overcompensation mode since I clearly hit a nerve.
@NationOfAfrica I have to wonder if you are defending Embiid because Jokic is white. And you are jealous that Jokic has won two straight MVPs and is going to win a third. I am right. Aren't I!
@TR Hansen Nope, nope. You can't use "I think" to argue -- report facts. The facts, according to the box score on ESPN: Jokic played 38 minutes and got 24 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists. Embiid also played 38 minutes, got 47 points, 18 rebounds. You can even see clearly in these highlights that Jokic was on court for most of the game.
Misleading. I think Jokic only played 10 minutes because of an allergy attack.
ok, how long can he be motivated like this..?
usually not very long
How’d he finish 2nd in MVP last two seasons “unmotivated “?
Embiid can't win. If we would have lost they would be saying Jokic's better. Now that he won they are saying Jokic doesn't care
@rb9888 he was snubbed
@rb9888 he’s averaging 34 and 10 wtf are you saying lol, literally averaging most points by a center since shaq
@Beede Bawng he has been very unstable this year. that's why he's not even in all-star starting line-up.
Shouldn't have left him off the starting lineup. now he's gonna show why he should've been a starter
Facts. Watch joel embid win mvp this season 💯
If you think Joel doesn't deserve MVP... I got two words for ya
He won’t win it though, can’t even stay healthy
What's the 2 words lol
And this dude isn’t an all star starter 😂 best center should jump over Jokic in the MVP race 💯💯
Embiid is more than MVP.
Again he showed the difference between the two centers… it’s levels JoJo >>> the rest
Jokic is Steve Nash 2.0
@Damian Szubski Hes a stat padding rim runner
The difference between them is that Jokic got better stats than the rest
Yup the most overrated MVps I’ve ever seen in this league.
Embiid's like "WHAT MORE DO Y'ALL WANT FROM ME!!?" "IS THIS NOT ENOUGH!?"
Consistency? Staying healthy? Especially in the playoffs.
This game was a statement by embiid, he is better than jokic and he just showed us
💥💥 Joel Embiid embarrasses Nikola Jokic
He killed Jokic all game 😭
@ALMIGHTY don't tell me to shut up, you shut up ! LOL
@minnuss he outplayed em the whole game shutup
He played awful in the first quarter, shooting below 50%.
He outplayed him in second.
i like this game🎉
crazy how hes not a starter 🤦♂ ppl are so delusional... embiid > jokic
The NBA voters really gave an assist stat-padder who refuses to play defense the MVP two years in a row over a true two-way force in Embiid who happens to dominate him in every game they play against each other. Throw out any irrelevant nerd stats like VORP or RAPTOR all you want. Real basketball fans know who the better player is by actually watching the games.
@Time Lapse Master look at you typing essays justifying a traffic cone defender. “But but but his VORP RAPTOR LEBRON RATING!!!!” 😂🤡
@philly_sports Ok then explain why Jokic have the second best plus-minus in the league, after his teammate KCP? It's literally the most basic stat. It literally shows that Jokic's team win more with him in the lineup comparing to Embiid. Even if you use "Eye test", Jokic is the nuggets offense, while the typical 76ers offense starts with a Harden/Embiid PnR/PnP where Embiid's only job is to finish. Jokic can not only do that more efficiently, he generates offense for the team, where as the team generates the offense for Embiid.
And also if you wanna use the "Embiid outplayed Jokic", yes I agree, Embiid was the superior player tonight there's no denying in that. But does one singular game defines everything? 6th January 2023 Bucks vs Hornets, Giannis dropped 9/4/0/0/0 on 2/7 shooting and 5/11 FTs. PJ Washington dropped 23/2/2/2/0 on 9/14 shooting. Does that means PJ Washington is a stronger MVP candidate than Giannis Antetokounmpo just because of this game? Hell no. Same thing applies here, Jokic's been great all season and although Embiid had an awesome season too, one singular game just isn't enough for Embiid to take down Jokic in the MVP race.
@Time Lapse Master VORP is a joke stat crated by people who are too busy playing Dungeons and Dragons to watch actual basketball games. Sorry.
VORP literally stands for value over replacement 💀 if one have less value over his replacement how could he be the more valuable player (That's literally what MVP stands for)...
Oh yeah and if you actually watch the games instead of ESPN you would know that Jokic plays good defense. Certainly not DPOY defense like how Embiid is, but he plays above average defense.
They left Jokic guarding Embiid? Why ? They would be better if they was playing Gordon on him . Jokic is dogwater on defense ..
Center version of Kobe.
