Buckets (and dance moves) were had by Joel Embiid in this matchup against the Atlanta Hawks.
The young ATL squad had no answer all night for JoJo, who scored from inside and out. Late in the first, Embiid even swished a spinning fadeaway midrange jumper with ease. Joel’s dominance was on full display in the 4th, where he bullied his way into the paint. On one play, he spun under the rim for an emphatic dunk, flexing his shoulders afterwards. The Cameroonian center also had a pull-up and one-handed putback jam in the fourth period. Embiid capped off the night with a hesitation crossover combo that froze John Collins before sinking the three. The showman in Embiid immediately pumped up the crowd with his hand to his ear, before busting out a few dance moves.
The final statline for Joel: 49 points, 14 rebounds, 1 win, and 2 Milly Rock moving arms.
The sneaker that Embiid rocked for this moment was the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn 2 that dropped in 2020. The shoe boasts full-length Micro G in the midsole for light responsiveness. As the name suggests, the outsole pattern matches the anatomical foot for easy movements and added court-feel. The eye-catching TPU plate on the lateral side further gives stability when moving side to side.
