Joel Embiid had a historic NBA night (and Twitter went nuts)

Joel Embiid had a pretty great night last night. 

After recording 46 points, 15 rebounds, 7 assists and 7 blocks, the Sixers center was the story of a game that was supposed to be all about Sixers and Lakers guards Ben Simmons and Lonzo Ball (Simmons was one rebound away from a triple double and Ball had two points.) 

Embiid was the first player in the modern era to ever record that stat line.

During and after the game, Twitter was quick to praise Embiid with multiple memes and GIFs. 

Here are just a few of those gems.
