In Detroit's thrilling 133-132 overtime win against Philadelphia, Embiid put in some serious work on the court, finishing with 33 points and 11 rebounds to Drummond's 14 and 16, respectively. The two had been going back and forth at each other all game, both with their play and with their trash talk.
"But those are winning plays you got to make, and being disciplined in those situations and not just Andre, all of us, myself, coaches, whatever, we just got to be a disciplined organization in those tight quarters". He made the ensuing free throw for the win. He is averaging just 5.7 points in his 20 minutes a night, but looking very sharp on the defensive end while mostly avoiding heavy rookie mistakes.
"Some of us tried to stop him, and he just had an unbelievable day", said Dario Saric, who scored 14 points for Philly.
Drummond and Embiid's rivalry dates back to previous year after the two went back and forth taking jabs at each other so it's not surprising to see that rivalry spark up again. Embiid acted as if Drummond had hit him in the face, and fell to the ground.
