It was a scary moment for the actress.
At 7 feet tall, Joel Embiid is a pretty massive human being. He's one of the best, if not THE best player on the 76ers and has helped lead the 76ers to a pretty solid season thus far. If you were to see Embiid rushing towards you while you're minding your business in the stands, you'd probably gasp in shock as he approaches. Well, that's exactly what happened to actress Regina King on Wednesday night when Embiid went running for a loose ball at Madison Square Garden. Embiid lept into the stand for the ball and his foot just barely missed King, although he ended up hitting a statistician anyway. It was a pretty crazy scene but we're just glad that everyone involved was okay.
"It's good that I saved her life, I guess, but someone else had to, like, take that," Embiid said according to ESPN. "I'm sorry about that."
As for the game, well big shocker here, the Knicks lost again, extending their losing streak to 18 games. The final score was 126-111 as the Sixers improved their record to 37-21 which ties them for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
Meanwhile, the Knicks sport a record of 10-47 which is good enough for last in the entire NBA.
