The Philadelphia 76ers are on fire. They won their 16th game in a row Wednesday night, cruising past the Milwaukee Bucks, 130-95. They've continued their hot streak despite the absence of their best player, Joel Embiid, who underwent surgery to repair a broken orbital bone after his face collided with Markelle Fultz's head.
It's still not yet clear when Embiid will play again—will he miss round one of the playoffs?—but he took some warmup shots with his squad Wednesday, and he looked good.
You'll notice Embiid was sporting a facial mask—something fans had eagerly anticipated after his injury. Embiid's mask quickly attention on Twitter. He even meme'd himself.
