This is THE big disappointment of last night: the absence of Joel Embiid at the Ball Arena in Denver to face Jokic in a duel for the MVP trophy. The first disappointed seemed to be the fans of… Nuggets, who did not lack imagination to gently room Jojo.
It’s clashes like these that keep us up at night. But last night, no Joel Embiid in Colorado to face Nikola Jokić, a disappointment for all NBA fans, but especially for the fans present in the room who did not fail to put a few coins in the piggy bank at troll:

Suddenly, the Joker took the opportunity to heal his line of stats (25 points, 17 rebounds, 12 assists) and allow his team to sign a 51st victory this season, but it must be said that it’s still been a while. that Joel Embiid…didn’t face Denver. The last confrontation thus dates back to November 8, 2019:
Embiid’s last game in Denver?

At a press conference, Nikola Jokić in any case showed great class by praising Embiid:
“He’s a great player. He will be remembered as one of the most dominant players in the league. It’s a beast. He is so talented (…)”
Nikola Jokic on Joel Embiid:
To see Joel and Niko compete this season? It will take the Nuggets and Sixers to reach the NBA Finals. We are not saying that the pivot of Philly flees that of Denver, but we say that if the duel takes place, this time the Process will no longer be able to hide.
