WATCH: Joel Embiid gets Andre Drummond ejected with Oscar-worthy flop Andre Drummond calls Joel Embiid 'Emmy Award-winning actor'

The 22-year-old missed Philadelphia's 133-132 overtime loss to the Detroit Pistons with lower back tightness on Tuesday.

Drummond held his palms in the air after the foul call, while Embiid, who had gone to the floor, got up and gesticulated to the official to throw Drummond out of the game.

Embiid made it a point to provoke Drummond, with everything coming to a head when the Sixers center flopped and, in response, Drummond picked up his second technical foul of the game and got tossed.

The two big men went back-and-forth at each other with Embiid dropping 33 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists and Drummond finishing with 14 points, 16 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks in their intense duel.


While the Pistons got the last laugh by winning the game, Embiid threw shots at Drummond postgame in an interview with Sixers beat writer Keith Pompey.

After the game, Embiid maintained he had the upper hand in the positional battle against Drummond, going as far as to suggest he owned "a lot of real estate in his head".

Embiid said all he was doing was just talking and trying to win the game. It didn't take long for Drummond to respond to Embiid's comments on social media. The Sixers, at the time, led 98-91. Glenn Robinson III, acquired as a free agent from IN, did not play after logging 33 minutes combined IN the first two games.

Last season, Embiid told reporters that Drummond "doesn't play any defense". The Pistons play the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday.
