What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Frank Vogel on AD: “It was good to see him get a rhythm. Competed and made some terrific plays on Embiid. … Anthony played a hell of a game on both sides of the ball.” – 10:07 PM
Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly
#Sixers coach Doc Rivers on Joel Embiid earning his fifth straight starting spot in the all-star game: pic.twitter.com/hMLGaFs6ZC10:05 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers beat the Lakers, 105-87. They are 29-19. Joel Embiid’s worst game in a while sees him go for 26-9-7-2-1.
Tobias Harris: 25-5-4-2 on 10-15 shooting. He’s playing much better as of late.
Four steals and a block for Matisse Thybulle. – 9:49 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
FINAL: Sixers 105, Lakers 87.
Anthony Davis (31 points, 12 rebounds, 4 blocks) was absolutely sensational in a match-up with Joel Embiid. The Lakers, as a whole, were underwhelming without LeBron James. The Lakers are again a game under .500. Charlotte tomorrow night. – 9:47 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
FINAL: Sixers 105, Lakers 87. Embiid with 26-9-7. Harris with 23-5-4. Maxey with 14-7-9. Lakers got 31 and 12 from AD with LeBron out but shot just 6-of-29 from 3-point land.
Up next for the Sixers: Saturday vs. Sacramento – 9:46 PM

this toolbag fan owes joel embiid a thank you tbh pic.twitter.com/uLKaXfYCKG9:39 PM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Not sure exactly what happened/was said there but Carmelo Anthony was not happy with a fan there. Embiid stood in the corner with him playing peacemaker – 9:32 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers 88, Lakers 68 at the end of the third. Embiid in triple-double territory with 20-9-7. Harris with 17-4-3. Maxey with 14-4-8. Sixers are 12-of-27 from 3, Lakers are 3-of-18. – 9:17 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
Joel Embiid isn’t running and working any less hard but he has been wincing a bit since that hard foul by Carmelo Anthony. – 9:09 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Uncharacteristic: Embiid has missed four FTs tonight (4-of-8). – 9:07 PM
Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers
Another swat on Embiid from Davis. This is the AD that can be potentially transformative for the Lakers. Transformative enough? Who knows? But he’s gotta be this guy for the Lakers to turn it around and really threaten for a title. BK – 9:04 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
It’s been a familiar feeling since LeBron’s heater, but watching Anthony Davis block Embiid while staying with him on a drive, seeing his 29-point, 10-rebound stat line midway through the third — it’s going to be a shame if/when the Lakers can’t pull it out with his effort. – 9:03 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
This AD performance, on both ends, has been incredible.
(It also doesn’t help that Korkmaz isn’t in the same zip code chasing Monk around these screens. Keeps putting Embiid in a tough spot.) – 9:03 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Davis just swatted Embiid for a second time tonight, as he continues to look terrific individually (29 points, 10 boards, 3 blocks in 26 minutes).
LAL haven’t had a chance to pair this version of AD with LeBron yet this season. – 9:03 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
The fan vote, in order of the top 10: LeBron, Steph, Durant, Giannis, Jokic, DeMar, Embiid, Ja, Wiggins, Paul George. – 9:02 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
An impressive performance from Anthony Davis has come mostly with Joel Embiid on him. Embiid’s been dominating the NBA for the last month and change (35 ppg), but Davis is 12 for 16 for 27 points with 7 boards and 2 blocks.
Embiid has 13, 6 and 5, but his Sixers lead 67-58. – 8:56 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Joel Embiid only has 13 points and Philly has a 67-58 lead. The others have stepped up in a big way in this one. Tobias Harris has 14 and Tyrese Maxey has 12. #Sixers8:55 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Unbelievable first half from Anthony Davis, who Embiid has played well against in his career: 23 points on 10-13 shooting. A nice mix of easy ones from his teammates but also a few tough, well-contested mid-rangers.
Sixers still lead the LeBron-less Lakers at halftime, 54-48. – 8:32 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
AD (23 points, 5 boards, 2 blocks) out-dueled Joel Embiid (13 points, 6 boards) in the first half, hitting 10 of 13 FG’s, including 7 for 7 in the paint, plus 3 jump shots.
But Philly was +15 from three, and holds a 54-48 lead. – 8:31 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
HALFTIME: Sixers 54, Lakers 48
Anthony Davis IS the Lakers’ offense tonight. He’s got a game-high 23 points despite a dinged up wrist against current MVP favorite Joel Embiid. But the Lakers haven’t helped him out much on that end. No one else has more than 7. – 8:31 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Pretty easily the best half Davis has ever had against Embiid (at least that I can remember). Defending him a lot more than normal, too. Should be a fun second half – 8:30 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Anthony Davis is really getting the most of Joel Embiid in this 1st half. This has been an impressive showing. – 8:29 PM
Synergy Sports Tech @SynergySST
Jeol Embiid is shooting 60% going one-on-one in the post over his last 10 games. – 8:26 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Joel Embiid just passed Moses Malone for 16th on the all-time Sixers scoring list. – 8:25 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers 32, Lakers 22 at the end of the first. Three-point shooting is the big difference in this one: Sixers are 5-of-10 and Lakers are 0-for-6. Harris with 7-2-2. Embiid with 8 points on 3-of-7 from the field and 4 boards. – 7:59 PM
Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
The @Philadelphia 76ers lead the Lakers, 32-22, after Q1.
Embiid: 8 PTS / 4 REB
Harris: 7 PTS / 3-3 fg / 2 REB
Maxey: 4 PTS / 5 AST (!) – 7:59 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Ball movement leads to 2 triples from Danny Green and another one from Georges Niang. Philly opens up a 30-20 lead with Joel Embiid has 8 points and 4 rebounds. #Sixers7:54 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Anthony Davis went back toward the tunnel. He had been favoring his right wrist since dinging it against the rim on a dunk that Embiid challenged him on. He removed a wrap on that wrist as he was subbed out. – 7:53 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Davis has 8 points on 4 of 6 FG’s, and Embiid 6 on 2 of 5 FG’s, with Phily taking an 18-14 lead into the first time out. – 7:47 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Would need to see a replay, but looked like Embiid came down awkward on that right knee trying to reach the full-court pass to Davis. Got up slow. Blocked/altered the next couple of shots, though. – 7:46 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Davis (8 points on 4-of-6 shooting) and Embiid (6 points on 2-of-5 shooting) are aggressive early. But so is Tobias Harris, who has 7 quick points on 3-of-3 from the floor after entering tonight questionable with a non-COVID illness. Sixers lead 18-14. – 7:46 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Shaquille O’Neal: “The difference between [Embiid] and his soft partner is he can take criticism without being a crybaby, and he still wants to play.” – 7:27 PM

Tuesday, it was Jose Alvarado vs. Joel Embiid for a jump ball. Improbably, the Pelicans won it.
Alvarado said he tried a trick he once saw Nate Robinson use. The two-way guard’s craftiness is one reason he has worked his way into the rotation. nola.com/sports/pelican…7:04 PM

Jose Alvarado already had a cut on forehead from nasty collision with MIN’s Jaylen Nowell. Now he has narrow cut by right eye. Alvarado on how it happened: “I honestly don’t even remember. I’m just trying to fight for every 50-50 ball. That’s how I get these little battle scars.” – 3:29 PM

Jose Alvarado said he told Joel Embiid after they received technical fouls Tuesday that Alvarado couldn’t afford the fine (which is $2,000, per the great @Andrew Lopez). A grateful Alvarado said today after practice that Embiid “did a generous thing” and paid Alvarado‘a fine – 2:28 PM

Danny Green implying Shaq didn’t have footwork is so off. Shaq’s feet highly underrated. His back to the basket footwork was excellent. Not the face-up guy Embiid is, but utilized his size and strength far better. – 1:12 PM

Both Jokic and Embiid are great.
But even Jokic’s one “bad” playoff series wasn’t that bad… and came against the eventual champs.

Obviously you can’t call all of them, but there’s ones where there’s clearly stiff-arms and trips and things; but on the other end there’s no consistency. It’s frustrating, but whatever. [This] was a tough one for us.” -via New York Post / January 24, 2022
