Joel Embiid if he loses MVP: 'I'll feel like they hate me'
© Provided by HoopsHype Embiid has 11 games with at least 40 points and 10 rebounds this season; only Russell Westbrook (12) and Moses Malone (12) have had more in a single season since the 1976-77 merger. Both players won MVPs in those seasons. “If it happens, great,” Embiid said of winning his first MVP. “If it doesn’t, I don’t know what I have to do. I’ll feel like they hate me. I feel like the standard for guys in Philly or for me is different than everyone else.”

It wasn’t easy on Sunday as Philly had to grind out a win over the Cavs, but Joel Embiid and company were able to do so. They react to the win. #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/lists/joel-emb… via @SixersWire – 12:01 AM Gina Mizell @ginamizell

Joel Embiid on his fourth-quarter mindset: “It’s time to deliver. They all look up to me, and I’ve got to figure it out. I’ve got to make things happen, whether it’s offensively or defensively. So when you get to that point it’s like, ‘Well, I’ve got to focus even more.” – 10:31 PM Austin Krell @NBAKrell

There are legitimate arguments for Embiid, Jokic, and Giannis to be MVP. It isn’t that any one of them is undeserving. It’s that the others have made their impacts in different ways and are doing just as much. That’s why there are so many votes. Voters value different things. – 9:57 PM Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP

* Miami snaps Toronto’s 5-game win streak.

* Sixers (Embiid 44-17-5b) win in Cleveland.

* The Celtics magic number to clinch at least the 4-seed is now just 1.

Georges Niang on why Joel Embiid should be MVP:

“It’s the most valuable player – And he is the most valuable player. How do you guard him?

He’s been doing this all year. He’s always answered the call. I think he’s more than deserving of the MVP award.” – 9:32 PM Serena Winters @SerenaWinters

Lamar Stevens admitted his body was hurting after tonight’s game.

@Joe Vardon asks Lamar Stevens what it’s like getting hit by/run into Joel Embiid?

“Like a truck, he’s the biggest person I’ve ever seen in my life, that can move that well & do the things that he does.” – 9:20 PM StatMuse @statmuse

Joel Embiid today:

Hell of an effort by shorthanded #Cavs, too much Embiid (44pts, 17reb), costly late turnover – Sixers sweep szn series w/112-108 win; FTs: CLE, 23-32, PHI, 35-42; 14 ties, 11 lead-changes; reb: PHI, 50, CLE, 41; CLE, 39 bench pts, 15 3ptFG. pic.twitter.com/ecvAOJBlX0 – 8:35 PM

Sixers survive poor shooting from all three of Harden, Maxey and Harris to get the season series sweep of Cleveland, 112-108. They are 48-30 and have officially clinched a playoff spot.

Joel Embiid: 44 points, 17 rebounds, 5 blocks, +16. He bailed them out alright. – 8:34 PM StatMuse @statmuse

Only 3 Sixers have recorded a 40/15 game in the last 40 seasons.

The Sixers are avoiding the Play-In. Embiid with perhaps his most dominant 2-way game of the season. – 8:32 PM Jon Johnson @jonjohnsonwip

MVP night for Embiid – 8:32 PM Joe Vardon @joevardon

It took Joel Embiid making his case for MVP for the Sixers to beat the Celtics. On a night when his teammates faltered, Embiid carried them with 44 points and 17 rebounds in a 112-108 win. Cavs were led by Darius Garland’s 23 points. Cleveland’s hold on 7th down to 1 1/2 games. – 8:32 PM Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen

MVP chants for Joel Embiid, at yet another away game. – 8:31 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Embiid came in to cle with a sore left ankle, clearly rolled that right one a bit. Such a dominant performance begging for a little more help than he’s gotten. Big theme this season. – 8:22 PM Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers

Embiid appeared to twist his right ankle on the block attempt. He remained in the game. – 8:18 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Felt like the Sixers were ready to roll over but Embiid just kept hammering on both ends. – 8:16 PM Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers

Embiid has 12 of the Sixers’ 20 fourth-quarter points on 5-7 shooting. He has four rebounds. Sixers lead 101-97 with Harden going to the foul line. – 8:16 PM Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen

Joel Embiid is playing with a ton of emotion out there. His fourth quarter has been an absolute masterclass so far.

43 PTS / 16 REB / 3 AST / 4 BLK

The @Philadelphia 76ers lead, 101-97, 2:57 to play. – 8:14 PM Austin Krell @NBAKrell

Embiid might need to get 50 to pull this one out. – 8:12 PM Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers

Embiid with 12 fourth-quarter points and the Sixers lead 101-97 – 8:12 PM Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers

Embiid up to nine points in the fourth. – 8:11 PM Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers

Embiid with seven of the Sixers’ 15 fourth-quarter points. They lead 96-95 – 8:10 PM Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor

#Cavs won the Embiid-on-the-bench minutes, 7-6. – 8:03 PM Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers

This game is the latest example of Embiid keeping the Sixers in the game. His squad takes an 81-80 lead into the fourth quarter. James Harden is shooting 2-10 and Tobias Harris, 2-7. But Embiid has 31 points and 12 rebounds. – 7:54 PM Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen

The @Philadelphia 76ers trailed by as many as 12 but now lead, 81-80, headed into Q4.

Embiid: 31 PTS / 12 REB / 4 BLK

Harden: 13 PTS / 7 REB / 6 AST

Maxey: 11 PTS / 3 AST

Niang: 8 PTS / 5 REB – 7:54 PM Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann

Incredible third quarter from Embiid still only gives the Sixers a one-point lead. Danger minutes coming up. – 7:54 PM Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor

#Cavs best stretch of the game was when Joel Embiid rested at the start of the second quarter. Can they capitalize once again with Embiid (+12 in 30 minutes) sitting to start the fourth? – 7:53 PM Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen

Joel Embiid’s first 28 minutes tonight:

30 PTS / 12 REB / 3 AST / 4 BLK

…read that again – 7:47 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Embiid is now 30/30 on end of shot clock step back 3s this year. Has to be. – 7:42 PM Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck

Sixers are in this game because Embiid is a superhuman and basically no other reason – 7:42 PM Austin Krell @NBAKrell

Embiid loves that left wing 3. – 7:41 PM Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann

Joel Embiid, pretty good. – 7:31 PM Gina Mizell @ginamizell

That punch pass from Embiid to Harden for the 3 was something. Sixers cut the Cavs’ lead to 63-60 with 8:40 to play in the third, and Embiid pumps both fists while walking back to the bench for the timeout. – 7:30 PM Eric Koreen @ekoreen

I see the Sixers continue to handle the non-Joel Embiid minutes well. – 7:14 PM Gina Mizell @ginamizell

Halftime: Cavs 55, Sixers 49. Feels like the Sixers should be down much more than this, considering they shot 30.8 percent from the floor, Maxey only played 8 minutes because of foul trouble, Harden is 1-of-9 from the floor and Cavs went 9-of-17 from 3. Embiid has 17 and 8. – 7:09 PM Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

Philly should feel lucky they’re only down 55-49 at the half with the way they’ve been shooting the ball. They’re shouting 31.6% at halftime and 6/22 from deep. Joel Embiid has 17 and 8 and James Harden is 1/9 from the floor. #Sixers – 7:09 PM Gina Mizell @ginamizell

Cavs on a 14-4 run to start the second to open up a 37-25 lead. Embiid is coming back with 8:56 to play – 6:46 PM Gina Mizell @ginamizell

Cavs 23, Sixers 21 at the end of the first. Sixers have to feel OK about only being down two after a quarter they shot 26.3 percent and turned it over six times. Embiid is 1-of-6 from the floor for 4 points, 4 boards and 2 blocks. Harden is 0-for-3 with 3 rebounds and 1 assist. – 6:39 PM Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor

Joel Embiid looks frustrated early. Hasn’t gotten some foul calls he’s wanted. Missing shots. Moses is really battling with him underneath. – 6:29 PM Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck

They should fine Embiid every time he goes for a chasedown block in transition until the playoffs – 6:26 PM Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor

#Cavs have held the Sixers to 1-8 shooting in the first 5-plus minutes. Moses Brown has been active against Joel Embiid. Philly also missing a lot of good, open looks. – 6:20 PM Gina Mizell @ginamizell

Embiid going right at Brown early, drawing a foul and then getting around him for a layup. – 6:12 PM Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

Average every MVP season in NBA history and you get 43.8 combined points, rebounds and assists per game.

There are SIX players doing it this season, tied for the most ever.

Giannis. Jokic. Embiid. LeBron. Durant. Doncic.

Just an absurd collection of top shelf talent. – 5:57 PM Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen

Sixers star Joel Embiid just came onto the court before #Cavs matchup for a pregame workout. There’s 44 minutes on the clock before tipoff. And he didn’t seem to be moving all that well. – 5:19 PM Serena Winters @SerenaWinters

Is Joel Embiid playing tonight?

“I think so, but I don’t know.”

– Doc

some things never change, philly 🙃 – 4:42 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Anthony Davis has played in only 39 games this season, but he did outplay Joel Embiid in late January, going for 31 points, 12 boards and 4 blocks with 2 steals.

Today against Jokic, AD’s off to a good start, with 12 points on 5 of 9 FG’s, w/2 boards and a block in 8 minutes. – 4:09 PM StatMuse @statmuse

More on this storyline

Lauren Rosen: Doc Rivers on Joel Embiid: “I really believe he should be MVP.” -via Twitter @LaurenMRosen / April 2, 2022 NBA reporter Chris Mannix, during the NBC Sports Boston broadcast Sunday with the Celtics hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves, shared a story about a recent phone call between Tatum and Embiid. “Let me in part a quick story about how much it means for Jayson Tatum to be MVP,” Mannix said during the broadcast. “I was speaking to Drew Hanlen, Tatum’s longtime trainer, the other day. He said he was with Joel Embiid when Tatum called him and before they got off the call Tatum said to Embiid, ‘You better win the MVP this year because I’m gonna get it next year.’ “ -via NESN.com / March 31, 2022 At this point, Khris Middleton has seen it all. For nine seasons, aside from the moments they’ve been sidelined because of injuries, he has seen every practice and every game of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s NBA career. And yet, Tuesday night, he still couldn’t believe what Antetokounmpo did on the Bucks’ final defensive possession against the 76ers. “It shocked the s— out of me,” Middleton said. -via The Athletic / March 30, 2022
