Sixers' Embiid, Wolves' Towns ejected

The fight resulted in a pair of ejections, one of the most entertaining exits from a game in recent memory, and Simmons earning a whole lot of respect for his willingness to deploy a headlock to defend his teammate's honor.

The Philadelphia 76ers were quick to come to Embiid's defense, with GM Elton Brand emphasizing KAT's perceived role as an instigator. One might even conclude it's art. "I know this city really showed him a lot of love". After both benches cleared and the dust settled, Embiid and Towns were ejected from the contest.

Minnesota led 11-9 midway through the first quarter before Harris hit a three-pointer.

"I was built for this city, and they were built for me".

Embiid has averaged 22.6 points on 48.6% shooting with 9.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in those games, while Towns has averaged 19 points on 42% shooting with 11.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. The 76ers defeated the Wolves 117-95.

Embiid said he doesn't believe he will be suspended because he didn't throw any punches, but the league may have other ideas.

Mr Johnson wants a December 12 election, but looks unlikely to get the required support from two thirds of MPs. Montchalin said "the prime minister can pick up his phone and call Brussels to say: "I stop everything".

Both players were ejected after video replays were analysed by officials. That's just playing into Embiid's hands.

The Wolves are sure wiling to fight, but there are some that they will have to carefully pick, as they now risk losing their star center to a multi-game suspension after the league has finished reviewing the incident.

"All I did was try to be as cool as I could in that situation", the Sixers All-Star said.

Philadelphia Coach Brett Brown said he didn't think Embiid would earn a suspension from the National Basketball Association, pointing out the latter didn't throw a punch and saying he didn't believe that his all-star center was the "instigator" of the brawl. I got his mom giving middle fingers.

The Sixers played against the Hawks two nights ago and featured their massive lineup which ended up shutting down Trae Young in the second half.
