  • Sixers’ Ben Simmons listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game in Detroit

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid might have lost to the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night, but there is a place he might have won. Drummond responded by referencing Embiid's inability to stay healthy and play in back-to-back games in the past.

Late in the fourth quarter, Andre Drummond was assessed a second technical foul and was ejected from the game after an incident involving Embiid.

Drummond and Embiid have a history.

Embiid had just scored to put the Sixers up, 120-118.

After hearing of Embiid's comments about owning "real estate in his head", Drummond took to Twitter and posted the following message: "Lol does he?" Despite the fact that it appeared Embiid flopped, he was ecstatic, gesturing for the ref to toss Drummond, and taunting the crowd. "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".

Last season's NBA Rookie of the Year Simmons was named in Philadelphia's starting five ahead of Wednesday's game in Milwaukee.

Andre Drummond had some last words for Joel Embiid as he left the floor, pointing angrily before exiting the arena.

Then, down the stretch of regulation, the teams traded the lead six times, with three ties.

After the game, Embiid gave his thoughts on Drummond, continuing his trash talk towards the Pistons big.

Pistons: Thursday they host Cleveland, which will be on a back-to-back after playing host to Brooklyn on Wednesday.
