Philadelphia 76ers: 3 takeaways from important win over Boston Celtics

Smart was ejected for his role in the fight, while Embiid was issued a technical foul.

Brad Stevens said Baynes suffered a Grade 2 spain.

"As you know, a time or two a year it gets the best of him". Smart appeared to challenge Embiid to continue the fight on the side as he was being walked to the locker room. The Celtics' physical, picket-fence defense had again taken Ben Simmons out of the game, shutting off his driving lanes and leaving Embiid to shoulder the entire offensive load. Embiid has played surprisingly passive against the Celtics over the years.

He also said Mexico would pay for it, though the Mexican government has repeatedly refused to finance the project. The US Congress allocated money to reinforce southern border security during each of the past two fiscal years.

However, as Boston is more of a jump shooting team than the 76ers, it stands to reason that Philadelphia would get to the line more. Not to mention, he had a crucial block on Kyrie Irving in the final moments of the game that helped Philly secure their first victory of the season against the Celtics.

"I actually thought we had started to get sort of a little bit of a rhythm and then momentum a little bit towards the end of the second quarter, and felt that too at the beginning of the third", JJ Redick said.

Embiid put up 37 points and 22 rebounds in a 118-115 win over the Boston Celtics in what was the game of the night. "I just had to come out and show that I'm the most unstoppable player in the league".
