Joel Embiid scored a career-high 59 points as he led the Philadelphia 76ers to a 105-98 win over the Utah Jazz.
The 28-year-old set a season high for points scored in an NBA game, and also had 11 rebounds, eight assists and seven blocks.
76ers coach Doc Rivers said he had “never seen such a dominant performance when you combine offense and defense.”
The win was the 76ers’ third in four games.
Cameroonian Embiid has become the first player to record at least 50 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and five blocks in a game since blocks became an official stat in 1973.
“We did it as a team. Obviously the coaches put me in those positions and my teammates gave me the ball,” Embiid said.
“I thought we had good spacing around everything we did. Like I said, all credit goes to my teammates.”
Embiid’s 59 points came after Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Darius Garland became the first player to reach the 50-point mark this season.
Garland, 22, scored 51 points but couldn’t save his team from a 129-124 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Lakers – without an injured Lebron James – beat the Brooklyn Nets 116-103 to end a five-game losing streak.
