NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Philadelphia 76ers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Whenever Marcus Morris suits up against the Philadelphia 76ers, it feels like there’s an altercation. The Sixers’ game against the Los Angeles Clippers Tuesday night was no different. During the 4th quarter, Morris and Joel Embiid got tied up under the rim and a shoving match ensued after the play.

You have to love Embiid getting under Morris’ skin. Both players were given technical fouls, but Joel would go on to have the last laugh. Not only would he stuff Morris at the rim just minutes later, but the Sixers won the game 110-103.

Embiid finished with 26 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists. Embiid tied for the team lead in points with Ben Simmons. Simmons registered a triple-double with 26 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

With the win, the Sixers improve to 34-21 on the season and 25-2 at home — no team has a better home record in the NBA.
