Russell Westbrook and Joel Embiid on court beef
Embiid intentionally fouled Westbrook with less than a one minute and fifty seconds on the clock. Westbrook hit the ground hard and to be held back on the court.
“I don’t think he just landed on me,” said the former MVP. “He had a little extra to it. But it’s OK.”
Westbrook then fouled out with 14.9 seconds remaining after he got Embiid while shooting a 3-pointer.
Then, when a reporter followed up by asking if he and Embiid were “cool,” Westbrook responded, “F— no!” When asked to elaborate, Westbrook only said, “Go home, bro.”
Embiid seemed unphased by Westbrooks feelings towards him. “I don’t know why he was mad,” Embiid said told reporters. “But he’s always in his feelings.”
Oklahoma City walked away with the win against Philadelphia 76ers 117-115.
