Sixers star Joel Embiid has low key clap back at Terry Rozier

Boston Celtics' Kyrie Irving goes up for a shot past Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid during the first half of an NBA basketball game Wednesday

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart was ejected less than a minute into the third quarter of Wednesday night's game against Philadelphia for a two-handed shove into the back of 76ers star Joel Embiid.

Embiid, meanwhile, was hit with a technical foul for his role in the play. When he got back to his feet, he didn't hesitate to show Embiid his displeasure with the screen.

The Sixers big man went flying into the corner, then jumped up and tried to go back at Smart before being held back by officials and teammates.

Embiid was not ejected and remained in the game. Philly understandably had plenty of motivation going into this game, and both sides brought playoff intensity.

Boston will take on the Sixers in Philadelphia tonight with an opportunity to sweep the season series.

Irving scored 36 points, but the 76ers finally broke their hex against Boston. He was a plus-20 at one point in the first half.

The host Celtics took the season opener 105-87, won a nationally televised Christmas game 121-114 in overtime also in Boston and earned a 112-109 win in Philadelphia on February 12. With 13 points that were mostly quiet, he found his impact through passing, rebounding, and defense. "I didn't see it coming". His free throw to put the Sixers up three points late was big.

Smart's defensive abilities were sorely missed down the stretch, and Embiid went on to have a massive night, finishing with 37 points, and further solidifying the Sixers' claim to third place in the Eastern Conference standings.
