Westbrook commented on his feud with Embiid adhering to a foul in the fourth quarter.
Russell Westbrook experienced some harsh text for 76ers heart Joel Embiid on Saturday though discussing an Embiid foul in the fourth quarter of Oklahoma City’s 117-115 victory. Following getting questioned if he is “awesome” with the Philadelphia star, Westbrook responded, “f— no.”
Westbrook and Embiid engaged in a minimal scuffle late in the fourth quarter at Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia. Embiid toppled above Westbrook as the Thunder guard gathered himself around the basket, sending Westbrook onto the flooring guiding the basket. Westbrook acquired up just after a instant and began to charge at Embiid, ultimately restrained by teammates.
Saturday wasn’t the very first occasion of poor blood between Westbrook and Embiid. The pair feuded very last time, punctuated by a mammoth dunk from Embiid above Westbrook in January 2018.
The Thunder sit third in the West at 27–18 following Saturday’s victory. Philadelphia is fourth in the East at 30–17.
