“I thought Joel got fouled the last three post possessions, and-ones, and none was called,” said Rivers, whose team is now 15-15 after an 8-2 start. “I don’t know how a team can play the fourth quarter of a game where we’re driving the ball and posting the ball and they have zero fouls. It’s hard to play a quarter in the NBA and commit no fouls. Very surprised by that.”

Embiid, who had a game-high 11 free throw attempts but none in the fourth quarter, agreed.

“I mean, they’re the home team,” said the All-Star big man, who had team bests in points, rebounds and assists.
