Embiid and Garland attain the 50-point milestone on NBA Day.

With 59 points in Philadelphia's victory against Utah on Sunday, Cameroonian Joel Embiid broke the previous point record this season by eight more by Darius Garland, who was equally spectacular but lost with Cleveland to Minnesota.

The Sixers' Cameroonian centre, who recently became naturalised in both France and the United States and who will have to decide for which of these two nations he wants to play in the future, was even more dominant the day after scoring 42 points against Atlanta by defeating the Jazz 105-98.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, on the other hand, lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 129-124, and Darius Garland's 51 points weren't enough to keep them from suffering their first home loss of the season.

The Cavaliers nearly pulled off a spectacular comeback despite being 20 units down after three quarters of play due to Donovan Mitchell's ankle injury, which prevented him from seeing Frenchman Rudy Gobert, his former teammate in Utah. The fourth quarter saw Garland continue to soar, scoring 27 points.

In the long distance, the base stood out with 10 triples in 14 attempts (and six assists). It was all in vain as his Cavs, who are currently fourth in the East, were unable to contain the wily Wolves (56% field goal accuracy), led by D'Angelo Russell (30 points and 12 assists), and Karl-Anthony Towns (29 pts, 13 rebounds).

On the other hand, the Wizards from the capital, who are currently in fifth place in the East, defeated the Grizzlies at home (102-92) despite being without their two best players, Ja Morant (ankle) and Desmond Bane (toe).

Gilgeous-Alexander is impressive.

Kristaps Porzingis continued to lead Washington in scoring and rebounding in Bradley Beal's absence (who was still on the anti-covid regimen), and Den Avdija provided strong assistance (21 pts).

Dillon Brooks (19 points) was the man with the aim for the Memphis team, which fell from second to fifth in the West.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, one of the best players so far this season, had a crucial role in the Thunder's 145–135 victory over the Knicks. He contributed 37 points, eight assists, and five rebounds.

In addition to Josh Giddey's "triple-double" (24 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds), and Luguenz Dort's 24 cards, Gilgeous-Alexander, who is averaging 31 points in his first twelve games and is the league's sixth-best scorer, also played a role in Oklahoma City's sixth victory (with seven defeats).

With 48 points scored in the opening period, the Knicks continued their excellent start. But after that, they started to struggle, scoring one fewer point in the following two (47) sets while simultaneously letting their defence slip (they allowed 86 pts).

For the New York squad, Cam Reddish (26 points) and Julius Randle (25 points, 10 rebounds) made significant contributions. Evan Fournier, however, failed not score in his 20 minutes on the field, highlighting the significant struggles that the club is facing.
