Griffin's career game lifts Pistons over Sixers in OT

Philadelphia 76ers Aussie Ben Simmons in doubt for game against Detroit over mysterious back injury WATCH: Joel Embiid gets Andre Drummond ejected with Oscar-worthy flop

During Tuesday night's game featuring the Philadelphia 76ers and Detroit Pistons, Joel Embiid got Andre Drummond in trouble with a bit of acting. Drummond responded by referencing Embiid's inability to stay healthy and play in back-to-back games in the past. Andre Drummond had 14 points and 16 rebounds before he was ejected late in regulation after picking up his second technical.

Drummond and Embiid have a history. And yet, Embiid still found a way to put up 30, 19 and six, and anchor the Sixers on defense.

After hearing of Embiid's comments about owning "real estate in his head", Drummond took to Twitter and posted the following message: "Lol does he?"

The foul had originally been called after Embiid appeared to get slightly tangled up with Drummond after scoring a go-ahead bucket in the paint. Overall, Embiid has a 3-1 lifetime record against Drummond. Glenn Robinson III, acquired as a free agent from IN, did not play after logging 33 minutes combined IN the first two games. Drummond's hand brushed Embiid's face after the basket, and Embiid exaggerated falling to the ground. The Sixers, at the time, led 98-91. The NBA ruling stated that Embiid flopped on the play. I love our guys, but we get excited, and we just got to maintain our focus, maintain our poise, and don't let a guy talking stuff to you take you out of what you want to do or flop or whatever it was, I really didn't see it. Both are strong players and under 25 years old, so they should have dozens of matchups over the next few years.
