There was a benches-clearing brawl Wednesday, and it didn’t take place on a hockey rink.
During the Timberwolves-76ers game, Karl-Anthony Towns and Joel Embiid exchanged blows after getting tangled up, leading to one wild scene in Philadelphia.
Even the Sixers’ Ben Simmons got involved as he wound up on top of Towns.
Embiid was also seen laughing at Towns after the two were finally separated.
Both players were ejected for their involvement in the fight. Embiid even relished the moment, hyping up the home crowd as he went into the tunnel.
Wednesday marked the first career ejection for Embiid and the second for Towns.
Towns had 13 points and six rebounds at the time of the ejection while Embiid had 19 and five.
