Markkanen then proceeded to miss both free throws.

Maybe Embiid was just explaining the Bricken’ for Chicken challenge, maybe he was taunting him. Either way, it’s absolutely hilarious that in the midst of a dominant 59-point, 11 rebound, 8 assist, 7 block performance, Embiid still took the time to troll his opponents.
