Joel Embiid, Robert Covington lift Philadelphia 76ers over Los Angeles Clippers

He scored 19 in the first half, putting forth one of his more impressive National Basketball Association performances. Believe it or not, the former Kansas standout ended up playing 36 minutes in the game, which is huge for someone on a "minutes restriction" like Embiid. He tormented the Clippers in every way.

Jordan's backup, Willie Reed, also submitted to Embiid's exploits on both ends.

After a 109-105 victory, Embiid continued talking trash, even (possibly pretending) to forget Reed's name.

Reed was hit with a Flagrant 1, and Embiid walked away from the incident shouting, "He can't guard me". And on Monday night, the Philadelphia 76ers finally took the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider of an National Basketball Association center out for his first real spin.

Redick scored 10 points in his return to Los Angeles, waving to the crowd after a video tribute in the first quarter. He later made fun of DeAndre Jordan after Jordan fouled out, which came after Embiid yelled at Jordan that he couldn't "fucking stop me!"

Over the last week or two, there have been concerns over the type of shape Embiid was in after dealing with knee soreness, so to see him put together a strong performance against the Clippers was a positive sign for the Sixers. If I'm open on the 3, I'm gonna shoot it, but tonight, I just wanted to go inside especially against DJ and I Don't Know What's His Name, but they both fouled out.
