Sixers 2021-22 rewind: Joel Embiid drops 50 points on Magic at home

·1 min read

With the 2022-23 season right around the corner, now is the time to take one final look back at the 2021-22 season and take a look at some of the highlights of the season for the Philadelphia 76ers.

This one takes everybody back to Jan. 19 when Joel Embiid took his game to another level in a matchup with the Orlando Magic. The young and pesky Magic have a lot of length on the frontline led by Mo Bamba and Wendell Carter Jr. and Embiid shook all of that off to explode for 50 points on 17-for-23 shooting and 15-for-17 from the free-throw line with 12 rebounds in a 123-110 win at home.

After the huge performance from Embiid, the Magic had no choice but to give their respects to one of the best players in the game. The big fella made their lives pretty miserable, but that is what great players do and Orlando had to just tip their cap to him.
