Things got heated between Celtics guard Marcus Smart and Sixers center Joel Embiid on Wednesday. As Smart tried to fight through the screen, he was knocked to the ground by what looked like a little chicken-wing elbow to the midsection from Embiid. Smart then fell to the floor, but no call was made. Smart was ejected for his role in the fight, while Embiid was issued a technical foul.
"As you know, a time or two a year it gets the best of him".
Michigan, Michigan State meet in Big Ten finals

"Philly ain't beat us since they had [Allen Iverson] dummy", Rozier replied. That's just part of it.
Smart left without speaking to reporters. Embiid has played surprisingly passive against the Celtics over the years. Philadelphia would have 46 free-throws compared to the Celtics 16. Not to mention, he had a crucial block on Kyrie Irving in the final moments of the game that helped Philly secure their first victory of the season against the Celtics.
Embiid poured in 37 points, a career-high 22 rebounds, going 20-of-21 at the free throw line and with plenty of pre-game talk surrounding the matchup with Al Horford, Embiid was a man on a mission, sending a message ahead of the playoffs.
"I've been hearing that these guys can guard me better than anyone else, so I had to come out and show that I'm the most unstoppable player in the league", Embiid told ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth after the game.
