Joel Embiid speaks out on drawing Andre Drummond’s ejection

Will things ever start looking up for the Sixers’ Markelle Fultz? | Bob Ford

This was a bit of a sloppy night from Embiid - it never felt like he found the rhythm that he had in the previous three games.

"The whole game there were a lot of cheap shots taken", Embiid said of Drummond.

Drummond and Embiid have a history.

While the Pistons got the last laugh by winning the game, Embiid threw shots at Drummond postgame in an interview with Sixers beat writer Keith Pompey. Drummond responded by referencing Embiid's inability to stay healthy and play in back-to-back games in the past. "The next one [referee] Tyler [Ford] said he was going to get a technical foul". "All I was doing was talking and playing basketball and trying to win the game".

"Obviously, on the second [technical], you can see that he hit me and his hand actually touched my face", he said.

Drummond later responded on Instagram. I'm not anxious about him! "Was locking his ass up and running him to exhaustion". He scored 28 points on 12-for-17 shooting.

In any case, this is just the latest in what has become a little feud between the two big men.

Drummond and Embiid have exchanged words through the media in the past, with Embiid saying last October that Drummond doesn't play defense and that he couldn't shoot.

Philadelphia's Joel Embiid (left) and Detroit's Andre Drummond took the tension to Twitter. Both are strong players and under 25 years old, so they should have dozens of matchups over the next few years.

In the individual matchup, Embiid had the edge once again.
