It was a busy Wednesday in the NBA with 11 games, and there was no shortage of highlights and great performances.

NBA scores for Wednesday, Nov. 15

Embiid dominates Lakers

Wednesday's Sixers-Lakers was all about one man: Joel Embiid. The second-year center scored a career-high 46 points to go along with 15 rebounds, seven assists and seven blocks in a victory in Los Angeles. Embiid was simply unstoppable with moves like this.

LeBron, Cavs win third straight

Winning streaks have been hard to come by for the Cavaliers this season, but LeBron James and Co. might finally be getting on the right track. James had 31 points to lead the Cavs to a road victory against the Hornets, and put the ribbon on it with a huge steal and slam.

Simmons side-steps Lonzo

The No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft had no problem getting past the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft. Ben Simmons won this round against Lonzo Ball.

Wall goes five-hole on Whiteside

Well, that's one way to get the ball up the court ...

Giannis says 'No sir'

Ish Smith thought he was going to put away an easy floater. He didn't count on Giannis Antetokounmpo coming out of nowhere to swat the shot into oblivion.

You down with MKG?

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist took out some frustration on the Cavs, throwing down this massive two-handed flush.

T-Ross ready for takeoff

Terrence Ross saw Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic standing in his way, but that didn't bother him one bit.

Quick hits

  • On Wednesday, the Sixers and forward Robert Covington were reportedly closing on a four-year, $62 million extension.
  • The Chicago Bulls scored just seven points during the first quarter against the Thunder -- the lowest first-quarter point total in franchise history. The Bulls had more shot clock violations (three) than field goals (two). Yikes.
  • The Bucks set a 2017-18 season high by blocking 16 shots in their win against the Pistons.
