Embiid on Drummond: 'I own real estate in his head'

Markelle Fultz

The 22-year-old missed Philadelphia's 133-132 overtime loss to the Detroit Pistons with lower back tightness on Tuesday. "It's just one of those thighs that with a back-to-back game and giving him the best chance we could give him to possibly play (Wednesday), we felt like it was wise to sit him tonight".

The league also rescinded a technical foul issued to Pistons center Andre Drummond on the play in which Embiid flopped.

Drummond and Embiid have a history.

Embiid told reporters after the game that he feels "like I own a lot of real estate" in Drummond's head and the Detroit center took to Twitter to respond to the Philadelphia star.

Scary movie rakes in millions on Halloween weekend
In fact, until this weekend, Jamie Lee Curtis' biggest opening weekend was $29 million for Beverly Hills Chihuahua . In fourth was another seasonal offering, Sony's Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween , at $9.7 million (Sh981 million).

Embiid made the comment following an egregious flop Tuesday night that got Drummond booted out. With just over 40 seconds left in the game, Embiid scored a bucket over Drummond to put the Sixers up, 120-118. Glenn Robinson III, acquired as a free agent from IN, did not play after logging 33 minutes combined IN the first two games. "The next one [referee] Tyler [Ford] said he was going to get a technical foul". The Sixers, at the time, led 98-91.

Drummond and Embiid have exchanged words through the media in the past, with Embiid saying last October that Drummond doesn't play defense and that he couldn't shoot.

"LOL does he? If that's so, he wouldn't be so excited to have me off the floor?"

Pistons: Thursday they host Cleveland, which will be on a back-to-back after playing host to Brooklyn on Wednesday.
