Marcus Smart ejected after retaliating against Joel Embiid

Marcus Smart ejected after retaliating against Joel Embiid

A scuffle with Celtics guard Marcus Smart early in the second half seemed to ignite Embiid, who poured in 15 of his 37 points in the third quarter, helping the 76ers erase a 69-58 half-time deficit to take control on their home floor.

It all started during the third quarter when Smart tried to steal a pass intended for Embiid. Smart obviously didn't appreciate that, and immediately shoved Embiid in the back once he got to his feet. Smart got ejected. Philly is getting all the calls. He knows how we all feel and he knows we all love him. Smart appeared to challenge Embiid to continue the fight on the side as he was being walked to the locker room. "So, that energy was definitely good for us".

The Celtics entered the night three games behind the 76ers in the Eastern Conference standings.

Philly pulled the trigger to acquire free agent-to-be Jimmy Butler, an All-Star scorer who had overstayed his welcome in Minnesota and was looking to latch onto a playoff-contending team, but most importantly - gave the Sixers a closer. Embiid, however, received a technical foul and was allowed to remain in the game.

"I've been hearing that these guys can guard me better than anyone else, so I had to come out and show that I'm the most unstoppable player in the league", Embiid told ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth following the victory.
