76ers-Hawks: Joel Embiid fined $35,000 for Game 6 altercation with John Collins

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The NBA announced a $35,000 fine assessed to Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid after his altercation with Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins after the two got into in Game 6 on Friday night. In the process of elevating toward the rim, his elbow connected with Collins’ chin and he fell to the ground and the referees called an offensive foul on Embiid. As the two were getting up from the ground, Collins shoved Embiid, which caused the Sixers big man to react and he escalated the situation. The Sixers though managed to come out with a win and force a Game 7 on Sunday evening, where there’s likely to be more physical play from Embiid and Collins.
