Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond (0) reacts to getting fouled and scoring a basket against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Afterward, he called out Drummond directly. "When we started the game, he was being aggressive and he was talking, too". He finished the game with 30 points, nine rebounds and two steals.
Embiid said he took to watching film of Drummond before the game and said Drummond simply can't play defense.
However, Drummond caught wind of Embiid's opinion of his playing style. "I'm going to kick your (butt) then.' So that's what I did". Drummond finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds.
A taste of Embiid was more than Drummond and the Pistons could handle in their first go-round, but Drummond isn't shying away... So what I was like [in my mind], 'You want to do that? "'You want to be all physical and talk [trash].' So I was like, 'You are going to get your [butt beat].' I love that".
Joel Embiid has been running his mouth since the day he stepped into the National Basketball Association, calling out players and teams left and right. They also trailed the New York Knicks by 21 on Saturday before rallying to win 111-107.
