Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid has made a habit of going on instagram after games and sharing a photo from the night with his 1.8 million followers. Often times, including last night, he'll get creative with the location tags on said instagram posts.
Despite the fact that the Sixers suffered a 122-112 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, Embiid took to IG to post a screenshot of his posterizing dunk on Russell Westbrook, along with the location: "Crime Scene Investigation."
After the dunk, as shown below, Embiid made a point to stare down Westbrook as he picked himself up off the court, which is something the Thunder's All-Star point guard won't soon forget.
Embiid finished the night with 27 points and 10 rebounds but it was Westbrook, who posted 37 points, 14 assists and 9 rebounds, who had the last laugh, and the last stare down.
As the clock wound down late in the fourth quarter, Westbrook grilled Embiid on the Sixers bench as he dribbled out the final seconds.
The Sixers and Thunder will not meet again this season, but Westbrook will see Embiid again during the NBA All-Star weekend in just a few weeks. Both players are on separate All-Star teams, Westbrook repping Team LeBron and Embiid lacing 'em up for Steph Curry's squad, so it'll be interesting to see if we can get a Westbrook vs. Embiid one-on-one moment.
