. Joel Embiid, named best player of the 2022-2023 regular season, scored 50 points, his highest total this season, for a victory for Philadelphia against the poorly ranked Washington Wizards (131-126). The pivot added 13 rebounds and 7 assists to his evening festival. All without being in full possession of his means, after having missed two matches due to illness. “I didn’t feel good. My chest hurt… I started to feel better in the second half, but I suffered,” he commented.

. Another card, Desmond Bane’s 49 points to help Memphis dominate the Detroit Pistons (116-102), the worst NBA team on record (2 wins – 19 losses, including 18 in a row). Luka Doncic validated a triple-double (40 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists), the 60th of his career, to help Dallas annihilate Utah (147-97).

. Victor Wembanyama’s Spurs, back after missing a game (hip), lost their 15th consecutive game at Western Conference leader Minnesota (102-94) and are getting closer to the franchise record (16), established the last season. Clumsy when shooting, Wembanyama was rather discreet for his return (12 points, 10 rebounds). San Antonio held up well before cracking in the fourth quarter. Another Frenchman took the spotlight, Rudy Gobert, with 16 points, 21 rebounds and 2 blocks, to a standing ovation from his audience. “Playing with Victor (Wembanyama) is fun. He’s someone I like, I hope he’s successful, I’ll always be there for him, I can’t wait to see him develop,” he greeted.
