The Celtics and Sixers met for Game 4 of their second round series in Philadelphia on Monday evening, with the Sixers looking to stay alive and extend the series while Boston looks to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals up 3-0.
"He tried to punch me twice".
Embiid and the Sixers trimmed the Celtics' lead with a 103-92 win, but Morris says that's no reason for the big fella to start yapping. One can only imagine where this Sixers team would be if it wasn't for the presence of the former Kansas star, but as impressive as Embiid's numbers were on Monday, it was his brief scuffle with Terry Rozier in the game that has been quite the popular discussion. I didn't understand why it was a double technical because I was just trying to get the ball.
With Game 5 set to go down Wednesday in Boston, Morris made sure that Embiid knows where the Sixers stand in this series.More news: $0.66 EPS Expected for Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (VRX)

"To set the record straight, I wake up every morning not anxious about nobody, no man on this earth", Rozier said. "To set the record straight I wake up every morning not anxious about nobody, no man on this earth". We were out there having fun.
Now the series will shift back to Boston, where the Celtics' role players have played better throughout the postseason and where the crowd will be much less friendly to the Sixers. It's just part of a basketball game.
Morris claims all the trash talk has him fired up for Game 5.
This came after Embiid shared words with hot-headed Celtics forward Marcus Morris during the game.
"Those type of plays, they just kind of like boost your energy and it takes your game to another level, so I like getting into that type of style", Embiid said. "They had a lot to say in here". "But hey, we're all different".
