Various extra curriculars happened during Game 3 between the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets. James Harden received a flagrant 2 foul and was ejected. Nicolas Claxton earned two technical fouls and was ejected. Joel Embiid garnered a flagrant 1 foul early in the first quarter.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, neither Harden nor Embiid will face “further action” because of their flagrant fouls on Thursday night. Both should presumably be available for Game 4, which is an elimination game for the Nets. Philadelphia now leads this series 3-0 after its narrow, 102-97 victory in Game 3.
