Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid scored a season-high 43 points as he helped the team defeat the Charlotte Hornets in overtime (127-124).
Despite its overwhelming performance, the Cameroonian center admitted that after recovering from the coronavirus, it was not close to 100 percent after the match. Embiid still feels an impact on his body, but is slowly progressing.
“I’m not even near [100 percent].. I still feel that, “Embiid said in a post-match walk-off interview. “I feel tired and pretty weak, but every day [I’m] It will get better slowly. So I had to keep pushing myself. My teammates, they push me. They want me to make all plays aggressive and defensive. As long as I have that trust, I’ll still push. “
This season’s Embiid averages 22.5 points, 11 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game for the Sixers.
