Embiid showcased his dominance by scoring a playoff career-high 50 points, along with eight rebounds, shooting an impressive 68.4 percent from the field and 71.4 percent from beyond the arc.

Supporting Embiid’s stellar performance, Tyrese Maxey contributed 25 points and seven assists, while Cameron Payne provided a boost off the bench with 11 points. The 76ers displayed exceptional accuracy from three-point range, collectively shooting 48 percent from downtown. Fans and analysts alike were awestruck by Embiid’s dominance, with many praising his historic performance and labeling it as one of the best in playoff history.

Despite Jalen Brunson’s impressive showing for the Knicks, recording 39 points and 13 assists while shooting 48.1 percent from the field, New York couldn’t secure the win. Although the Knicks held a three-point lead at halftime, the 76ers surged ahead in the third quarter and maintained their advantage for the remainder of the game.

With the series now at 2-1 in favor of the Knicks, both teams are gearing up for Game 4. The Knicks aim to extend their lead to 3-1, while the 76ers are determined to even the series at two games apiece. As anticipation builds for the upcoming matchup on Sunday, the focus remains on whether Embiid can sustain his exceptional form and lead the 76ers to another crucial victory, or if the Knicks will bounce back and further solidify their series lead.
