There was a fight in the NBA on Wednesday. The Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid and Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl Anthony Towns went at each other during their game at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
As a result of the fight between the two big men, both were ejected from the contest. In addition, both men are likely looking at a multi-game suspension for their actions.
It appeared – at least according to the video –- that Embiid may have hit Towns in the face. The Wolves center did not like it, so he went after the center representing the City of Brotherly Love.
“First of all, I aint no b*tch,” Embiid said after the game, according to NBC Philadelphia’s John Clark. “I like to get in people’s minds. I have real estate in their heads.
“I was built for this city. You’ve got to be a Broad Street bully.”
The 76ers won the contest with a 117-98 win over the Timberwolves. But this game will be marred by the fight that happened between the two big men.
Embiid led the 76ers with 19 points before his ejection. He also had five rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 20 minutes.
Towns had 13 points before leaving the game. He also had six rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one block in 22 minutes.
