Article Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is listed as 7 feet tall, 280 pounds, and might be even bigger than those measurements.

With 4:45 left in the second quarter, an Embiid foul sent Pelicans veteran guard Garrett Temple to the ground. Following the Sixers’ 105-87 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night, Embiid explained why.

“I just like his energy. He plays hard. He competes. Even when he picked up the tech, he wasn’t backing down,” said Embiid, who admitted he didn’t expect to have to talk about his good deed.
