Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (21) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Reggie Jackson (1) during the second half of an NBA basketball game, Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018, in Detroit.

Drummond held his palms in the air after the foul call, while Embiid, who had gone to the floor, got up and gesticulated to the official to throw Drummond out of the game.

After he scored, Drummond sort of tossed out a little chicken wing and Embiid tumbled over backwards to draw the technical foul. Glenn Robinson III, acquired as a free agent from IN, did not play after logging 33 minutes combined IN the first two games.

Embiid and the Sixers next face the Pistons at home on November 3. "At one point, I think [referee] Tyler [Ford] said that the next cheap shot, the next one is going to get a technical foul, and that's why he got the other technical foul".

Joel Embiid racked up 33 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, and JJ Redick had 30 points, six rebounds and six assists for Philadelphia. After hearing about the comments, Drummond said he was eager to play Embiid again, but the Sixers big man just responded by talking more trash, saying Drummond "can't shoot". Embiid acted as if Drummond had hit him in the face, and fell to the ground.

Embiid garnered attention after Tuesday's game when he said of Drummond, "I think I own a lot of real estate in his head". Drummond responded with his own tweet to brag about the Pistons' win and take a jab at Embiid's flop. The Sixers, at the time, led 98-91. Both are strong players and under 25 years old, so they should have dozens of matchups over the next few years.
