Philadelphia Sixers center Joel Embiid soars into the NBA All-Star Game in another stratosphere. He leads the league in points-per-game (29.6) and is tops in usage percentage (37.7%). The Sixers’ second-to-last game before the break against Boston ended a string of 23 straight games in which he had scored at least 25 points.
“The Process” is now the first Sixer since “The Answer” (Allen Iverson) to make five straight All-Star game starts. Newly acquired Sixer James Harden was also named to the All-Star team. However, he won’t play due to injury.
How bright will the big man shine? PA sports betting apps are filled with odds and props giving Sixers and NBA bettors ways to wager on the 2022 NBA All-Star game.
