Josh Hart of the Los Angeles Lakers was tuning into the game between the Detroit Pistons and the Philadelphia 76ers. With less than a minute remaining in regulation, Joel Embiid fished for a foul leading to an Andre Drummond ejection. Hart immediately let the world know what he felt about the call.
Via his Twitter account, the Laker guard said:
That should be a fine 🤦🏽♂️

Was it a flop or a did Drummond really raised his forearm to Embiid’s face? You decide. It appears a Lakers player already has. Several NBA players have been criticized for selling calls to the point of overreacting.
But flop or not, Embiid was certainly happy about the call. Check out the video below as posted by Dime to see how the 76ers big man celebrated:

Drummond got a second technical foul for his supposed antics. He left the game with 14 points and 14 rebounds. Though he wasn’t able to help his team as the game went to overtime, it seems that he got the last laugh as the Pistons defeated the Sixers, 133-132 in extra time.
Embiid himself finished with 33 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists. But it was Blake Griffin who shined as not only did he carry his team in absence of his frontcourt partner, he also exploded for a career-high 50 points, along with 15 rebounds and 7 assists. He also hit a game-winning and-1 over Embiid.
The Pistons are now 3-0 to start the season while the Sixers are 2-2.
