According to the NBA, Joel Embiid has won his third Eastern Conference Player of the Week of this season. Philadelphia is on a five game winning streak, and Embiid has been absolutely ridiculous as of late; even for his own lofty standards.

Over the last four games they played, Embiid dropped 38.5 points, 6.8 boards, 2.8 blocks, and 1.5 steals, as the Sixers swept the Pacers, Timberwolves, Blazers, and Wizards.
