Philadelphia's star center once again leads the way in our latest look at standout international performers throughout the season.Scoring at least 25 points in 16 straight games is one way to keep the top spot in the Around the Globe report.
Embiid continues to put up ridiculous numbers without sacrificing efficiency; he managed to score 50 points in just 27 minutes in the Sixers’ 123-110 win against the Magic on Jan. 19. It’s even more amazing when you consider that he dominates primarily from the post in an era where the 3-point shot has become so important.
Philadelphia has not wasted his performances. They went 6-2 over their last eight games and have moved into a tie for fourth place in the East with Brooklyn. Not surprisingly, Embiid was named an All-Star starter for the fifth consecutive season. The Cameroonian big man has been durable this season, something that has elevated his case in the race for KIA NBA MVP.(NBA)
