The Philadelphia 76ers dealt a heavy blow to the Washington Wizards, winning by a final score of 146-101. The dominant victory marked the Sixers' 15th win of the season, while the Wizards stumbled to their 15th loss, their heaviest loss of the season.

Leading the offense for Philadelphia was the unstoppable Joel Embiid, who turned in another impressive double-double performance. He dominated the game, scoring a record 34 points, along with 11 rebounds and six assists. The performance was especially significant for Embiid as it marked his 129th career game with at least 30 points and 10 rebounds, surpassing the legendary Charles Barkley (128 games) for the most such games in Philadelphia franchise history.

Truly a record and an achievement to be respected.

Embiid doesn't stop bombing opponents

Joel Embiid recorded 30+ points and 10+ rebounds in seven consecutive games, which is the longest streak since Shaquille O'Neal, who in the period from March 28 to April 17, 2001, had such an effect in 11 games Tyrese Maxey provided valuable support with 24 points, while Tobias Harris and Patrick Beverley scored 12 points each.

Their combined contributions ensured that Philadelphia's offense was firing on all cylinders. In contrast, the Washington Wizards struggled to keep up with the Sixers' offensive attack. Despite a valiant effort from Kyle Kuzma, who had 21 points, nine rebounds and an assist, the Wizards lacked the firepower to compete with the incredible Embiid and the team.

There were some good moments for Washington, but Philadelphia was simply the better team and in the end deservedly got a dominant win. Led by the unstoppable Joel Embiid and a supporting cast, Philadelphia looks like a team to be reckoned with.

Their dominance promises to be the main story in the NBA landscape, no one will be looking forward to a game against them in the rest of the season. The Philadelphia 76ers next face the Detroit Pistons, while the Washington Wizards take on the New Orleans Pelicans on December 13th.

The 76ers will try to continue the great results this season on the wings of the incredible Embiid, while the Wizards should consolidate their ranks while there is still time.
