When the Sixers and Thunder met in Philadelphia back in December, the game resulted in a triple overtime thriller, with the Thunder edging out the Sixers in a game that featured a lot of trash talk.
Naturally, when the two met on Sunday evening in Oklahoma City there were some more fireworks in a 122-112 victory by the Thunder to sweep the season series. The biggest storyline in the budding cross-conference rivalry is the ongoing battle between Joel Embiid and Russell Westbrook.
The two exchanged pleasantries in their first meeting, but things heated up on Sunday thanks to some showboating from Embiid following a monster slam over the reigning MVP. Embiid was very proud of his effort in putting Russ on a poster, and made sure he let him know about it as he stared him down before returning to the defensive end.
