David Aldridge: When you played the Lakers the first time, you had an historic game — 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists, seven blocks. What was that like, being in a game where everything is working? Joel Embiid: I was just playing basketball. I was making plays, my teammates were finding me. They were feeding me, I looked unstoppable, and I feel like I’m unstoppable.
So I kept going at it, and they tried to make adjustments, but I felt like it was too late. It was exciting in my head. The Lakers fans, they were talking (bleep) in the stands, and I love that. That got me going. So it was just, I don’t know the feeling, but that was kind of like my first time going through that. Just bucket after bucket. It was different.
