Embiid trolls the world and backs down from no man, and that includes Carmelo Anthony. Late in the fourth quarter of the barn burner between the Thunder and 76ers Friday night, Embiid backed ‘Melo down and scored over him, then did a little jawing — which Anthony didn’t appreciate. For example, in the first overtime Russell Westbrook thought he made a drive that was going to win the game, and Embiid rejected him.

Joel Embiid gave credit to the Oklahoma City Thunder for their 119-117 win over his Philadelphia 76ers in triple-overtime on Friday, but he was not impressed with how Russell Westbrook shot the ball. Westbrook is not known for his strong shooting percentage, but this season it has been a legitimate failing in his game. Embiid, who scored 34 points on 11-of-20 shooting, got into it with Westbrook after the game, with pair yelling at each other back and forth while walking off the court.

The Sixers traveled to Minnesota to play the Timberwolves on Tuesday in a matchup of two young teams that should be playoff fixtures for years to come. The game itself did not disappoint, as Philly needed overtime to secure a 118-112 win behind 28 points, 12 boards and eight assists from Joel Embiid. Sixers guard J.J.

Is this the start of the injuries portion of the Sixers season?

Well, maybe one problem, and that's that they didn't have enough healthy good players to compete with an essentially full-strength New Orleans Pelicans squad for 48 minutes, losing 131-124 (JRUUUUUUEEEEE). It's pretty much unavoidable for most teams, and all but guaranteed for the post-Process Sixers. Over the weekend, I made the rookie mistake of mentioning how despite the Sixers suffering two embarrassing home defeats, making a trade I find personally insulting and giving us another "Oh yeah, Markelle's doing great -- you can't see it, and you won't for another three weeks, but just trust us, 's all good" Fultz update, everything still was OK because Embiid was still healthy and as long as he's healthy who even cares about whether the sun rises or not?

Right when it looked as if rising star Ben Simmons might lift the 76ers to an unlikely road victory, a guy that used to have Simmons' job in Philadelphia took over in the clutch and rescued the Pelicans. Jrue Holiday made five 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, when he scored 19 of his 34 points, and New Orleans overcame an eight-point deficit in the final period to beat short-handed Philadelphia 131-124 on Sunday night. The 6-foot-4 Holiday, an Eastern Conference All-Star in Philadelphia before being traded to New Orleans in 2013, struggled to create scoring chances on dribble drives against the 6-foot-10 Simmons, missing eight of his first 12 shots.
