Joel Embiid, the 76ers superstar center, put up some big numbers with 28 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists. KAT put up some good numbers of his own with 19 points, 16 rebounds, and 3 blocks. It was a great game.
After the game, Embiid decided to come after Towns on Instagram.
Joel Embiid is fun for the NBA, but he is all about making enemies of opposing bigs. He has already feuded with Hassan Whiteside and it seems that Towns is next on the list. Towns gets burned on this one, but he will have the opportunity for revenge. The Timberwolves will travel to Philadelphia on March 24th.
Towns and Embiid should be a fun rivalry for years to come. The two big men can certainly fill up the stat sheet and despite Embiid’s dig at Towns’ defense, the former Kentucky big man has made some improvements in that area. It will be interesting to see how the two big men fare in their next matchup. KAT will be ready.
