Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers clashes with Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves. It's a known thing that I OWN YOU. It was a surprise to multiple Wolves who were asleep on the bus, such as Karl-Anthony Towns and Josh Okogie. "I think at the end of the day, we're going to be an organization that we have to work and earn the right to be successful in this league, and last night was a step in that direction". Embiid managed to take Towns to the ground, where he jammed his thumb into Towns' eye.

First, a quick catch-up: Embiid and Towns engaged in a wrestling match that also appeared to include attempted punches. It was a pretty massive spectacle that led to the ejections of both Embiid and Towns.

Not surprisingly, both Towns and Embiid were ejected for their extracurricular activities.

During Butler's time with both teams, his level of intensity was always in evidence.

"I was built for this city and they were built for me. you gotta be a Broad Street bully".

Sixers coach Brett Brown said he's not concerned that Embiid will receive a suspension.

In their latest win, a 116-109 victory over the Miami Heat, Towns had 23 points and 11 rebounds, and Wiggins added 25 points.

Another problem is how will they hide Jeff Teague on defense? However, Embiid said post-game he doesn't believe he'll get one.

It wasn't your normal variety National Basketball Association fight as the two players really went after each other causing a big melee before being separated by teammates, coaches and referees. Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders rang the bell and teammates Carson Wentz, Alshon Jeffery and several other players watched from a suite.

Embiid reveled in the skirmish on his way off the court, shadow boxing and pumping his arms to the frenzied Sixers fans before disappearing into the tunnel. The Sixers dominated. They dominated on the glass, defensively, and offensively.
