Wizards’ star Kyle Kuzma electrifies the NBA Twitter as he puts Joel Embiid on a poster, and then blocks him soon
The Philadelphia 76ers made their way to Washington tonight, as they face the Wizards on MLK day. The third in the line of 10 games, the Sixers and Wizards both look to win tonight’s contest. Entering the contest, the Sixers have won 9 out of their last 10 matchups. They sit on the 5th spot in the East, with a 25-17 record. This is despite them not having Ben Simmons back, and then their stars missing multiple games due to protocols and injuries.
On the other hand, the Wizards are on the 9th spot in the east with a 22-21 record. They have gone 5-5 in their last 10 games. Kyle Kuzma has been a revelation in the new year. He has been putting up excellent numbers so far.

He has not let us down tonight so far. He’s had two emphatic dunks and a lot more excellent plays so far.
NBA Twitter reacts as Kyle Kuzma posterizes Joel Embiid
The Wizards started the game off strong, going into the half with a 6-point lead over the Sixers. At a point, they had a 12-point lead, but they couldn’t manage to hit their shots approaching half-time, and the Sixers capitalized on it.
During the 2nd quarter, Kyle Kuzma electrified the entire Capital One Arena, as he put Joel Embiid on a poster.
