The Sixers Joel Embiid and Washington’s Montrezl Harrell had a scrum in the third quarter, and both were T’d up.

But evidently only Harrell was T’d off, enough to get tossed after a second tech..
Embiid loved it:
“He flopped. I don’t think he made a play on the ball, and we got tangled. I wouldn’t say I baited him into that. I’d like to think I’m a troll.”
The Sixers’ All-Star big man was not apologetic, doubling down on his trolling with a rather honest assessment.
“I’m glad I got to him.”
Joel Embiid has had his brushes with opponents in the past because of his wise-crack personality. The flare-up with Montrezl Harrell obviously didn’t affect him though as he delivered another dominant showing for the Sixers, who improved to 17-16.
