The Philadelphia 76ers may have had trouble against the Boston Celtics recently, but on Wednesday night, they managed to put one in the win column.

Smart received a flagrant-2 foul and was ejected at the 7:06 mark of the third quarter. Smart had taken objection to Embiid sticking his left elbow out as Smart ran past the Philadelphia center on defense. That sent Embiid sprawling to the ground in the corner, and he immediately leapt to his feet and tried to rush back at Smart, with officials, coaches, security guards and players from both teams preventing things from escalating further.

"Stuff like that, it gets me going, it gets the crowd going", Embiid said. We know that we can beat anybody in the league.

"Obviously, I was frustrated, because it was a cheap shot", Embiid said afterward. "I didn't see it coming".

It was in that frame that the Celtics undoubtedly could have used Smart, as Butler went 5-for-8 for 15 points, and sealed the deal on a Philly win when Kyrie Irving was unable to come through with the late-game stop to keep the Boston deficit at three. "That's just part of it, it's part of a long season".

Embiid finished with 37 points, 22 rebounds and four assists.

US Fed now expects no rate hikes in 2019

If you had told Sixers fans before the game that Kyrie Irving and Terry Rozier would combine for 56 points, most would've assumed it went something like this: Both players targeted JJ Redick time and again, and scored on him easily.
