Sixers star Joel Embiid laughs off Marcus Smart’s ‘flailing’ accusation

USA Today


Article Summary:

The high number of free-throw attempts bothered Celtics guard Marcus Smart who called Embiid out for flailing, essentially flopping, his way to calls.

“Marcus Smart just said I flail a lot? Come on,” laughed Embiid.

“If you watch basketball and if you’re a student of the game and you actually pay attention during the game, every single foul, I got fouled,” Embiid continued. “They probably don’t call all of them like the last one. When there was 10 minutes left and I went up and that was a foul and they knew it, but they didn’t call it so there’s a lot that they don’t call, and there’s a lot that they call cause you have to, the game is physical.”

Teams try to send waves of defenders to deter Embiid, which is what Boston did on Wednesday, and Embiid is going to use his skill to be able to draw fouls.
