Joel Embiid after loss: 'The referees (expletive) suck'

February 13, 2019 - 10:03 am

Joel Embiid had a decent game Tuesday night, finishing with 23 points and 14 rebounds in his Sixers' 112-109 loss to the Celtics. (For more on the C's win, click here.)

But with just two seconds left Embiid chose to put back a Tobias Harris 3-pointer instead of kicking the ball out. The decision left Philadelphia still down a point, allowing for the C's to seal the deal with two Jayson Tatum free throws.

While the center took plenty of blame during his postgame press conference, he couldn't help himself while walking away from the microphone. According to Embiid, a big chunk of blame for Philadelphia's loss goes to the referees.
