All the Dwight screens were moving screens. The one with Mathews was in front of the ref.

Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid says Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James should have been ejected for foul

Quote:
"First of all, I mean, you look at it, that's a very dangerous play," Embiid said of James' foul, which came at the 5:44 mark of the third quarter. "I guarantee you that if it was me, I would have probably been ejected from the game, which has happened in the past with me getting flagrant fouls really for nothing."


Quote:
"First of all, LeBron's not a dirty player," Rivers said. "It was just a physical play, and they had to call the flagrant, I guess.

"You know, all of the flagrants tonight ... you can get a flagrant easy these days. But that fall was hard, and there was some concern there, for sure. The fact that Joel kept going, clearly he wasn't the same after that, as far as his movement. And we kinda knew that, and we used him a lot in pick-and-rolls because of that."

That is such a weak counterfactual. Statements like this get made way too often.

Lebron barely touched flopping Embiid.

He’s so used to flopping that he is really going to injure himself.

So Joel is saying he does it often so the refs eject him all the time? Quite refreshing to know

Nah, he won't get hurt, he's a highly skilled professional flopper.

Maybe but with the incident last night he’s so used to flailing that he ended up taking a hard fall..unless he was trying to milk it as much as possible to get Lebron ejected which is entirely possible too.

Funny he walked like he had lower back issue then he checks in and he’s running out there. Embiid did grow up as a soccer player so it comes naturally to him

I am not mad at this loss, the Lakers decided to show up and basically stole the game. Don't see how Sixers gain any confidence from this.
