Basket-brawl: National Basketball Association stars Joel Embiid, Karl-Anthony Towns ejected for fighting

The Sixers are one of two remaining undefeated National Basketball Association teams (the other being the 3-0 San Antonio Spurs).

Both teams are at the top of their respective conferences. "That's why you were treated like a bitch by you know who", a line that certainly sounds like a reference to Jimmy Butler.

How Saunders shuffles the lineups throughout the game will be fascinating and could really solidify the identity of this team in their toughest matchup of the early season. Well, this relatively uneventful fight in a lopsided win added yet another chapter to his legacy, his legend in the City of Brotherly Love.

Andrew Wiggins has been a surprise so far and he is showing a level of consistency he hasn't shown before. "Everyone's feeling comfortable and knows we all support each other". Jeff Teague scored 15 points. Philadelphia won the match 117-95, their fourth consecutive victory of the season.

Embiid, meanwhile, had 19 points, five rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot.

"It doesn't matter", Embiid said. So that's a long way. It wasn't what got us to 3-0. "I've always got my teammate's back".

Embiid punctuated a dominant first half with a three to put the Sixers up 63-42 going into the break. Josh Richardson said he wanted to get in there to protect his "brother" and that is something that Simmons eluded to as well. While the two big men traded a lot of standard trash talk, Embiid may have also gotten very personal with Towns.

Suspensions are probably on the way for both players after this brawl.

So what started as a "By the Numbers" column on the Sixers-Timberwolves game will be adapted a tad. Richardson has been up and down in three games.

Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons is among the best passers in the game.

Besides being the catalyst in ripping apart Embiid and Towns, Ben Simmons ran the court tonight. Embiid is available for $10k on FanDuel and he has a projection of 52.82 points. At one point, both players were locked arm in arm while the play went up the court.
