Joel Embiid finished with 31 points, 16 rebounds, 7 assists, 6 blocks and 2 steals in the Philadelphia 76ers' 112-108 win over the Brooklyn Nets. The Sixers are up 3-1 in the series.
The game was marred by ejections from Jimmy Butler and Jared Dudley in the 3rd quarter. Embiid drew a flagrant 1 foul on Jarrett Allen, sparking Dudley and Ben Simmons to get tangled up into the courtside seats.
Dudley had been going back and forth on and off the court with Sixers players the entire series.
"First of all, he's a nobody. And when opponents try to do stuff like that, that's just to get us out of the game. Especially, I'm too valuable for my team. That's why I didn't react. I did not do anything and I did not think that was a flagrant foul because I played the ball, too. But in that type of situation I just got to stay composed and be mature," said Embiid about Dudley.
Embiid said he would pay the fine associated with Butler's ejection.
