The Nets-Sixers series is starting to heat up
Last week, Joel Embiid was assessed a flagrant 1 when he forcefully elbowed Jarrett Allen in the head.

Many felt that Embiid should have been ejected for deliberately swinging his elbow at Allen.
Embiid should’ve been hit with a flagrant 2 if we gone keep it a buck. Refs just didn’t wanna eject him because it’s the playoffs and he the best player on the floor

That Embiid call was terrible. You can see the extra umph in the replay. NBA didn’t want to eject a star. That’s weak on their end. Did it to probably the nicest kid in the league, anyone else gets in his face after that.

After the game, Embiid tried to apologize for elbowing Allen in the head but he and Ben Simmons couldn’t hold back their laughter.
Sixers’ Joel Embiid & Ben Simmons crack up laughing while Embiid was trying to apologize for flagrant elbow to Nets’ Jarrett Allen during Game 2 win: “I got him pretty good but I’m sorry about it. it wasn’t intentional. …. I’m not usually humble that’s why he’s laughing.” pic.twitter.com/Ll1wuTHEk3

During game 3 of the Sixers-Nets series Embiid once again delivered a hard foul on Allen which led to Jared Dudley aggressively confronting Embiid.

Dudley was ejected as was Jimmy Butler and Embiid was assessed a technical foul.
