Joel Embiid takes another shot at Andre Drummond after dominant win for 76ers
The Joel Embiid-Andre Drummond feud is ramping up with each passing game between the two.
Embiid had the better of their latest meeting as he scored 39 points – with 32 in the first half – and grabbed 17 rebounds in the Philadelphia 76ers’ 109-99 win over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday.
And having secured his team’s sixth win of the season, the 24-year-old took to Twitter to continue his beef with Pistons center Drummond, who finished the game with just eight points and nine rebounds.

“I own a lot of real estate in @andredrummond head and I’m on my way to build more #Bum,” he tweeted.
The rivalry began on October 23 last year, when Embiid was critical of Drummond’s defence, who then took to Instagram after the two teams met earlier this season to claim Embiid was “fat, outta shape and talks all day”.
Drummond had been ejected from that game after Embiid flopped – he was later warned by the NBA for his reaction to Drummond accidentally grazing his face – and despite his team losing the game, Embiid couldn’t help himself.
“I think I own a lot of real estate in his head,” Embiid said after the game. “We lost, so I’m not supposed to talk trash, but he knows damn well that he can’t guard me.”
Big talk, but with such a dominant performance, ‘The Process’ is backing it up on the court. He leads the team in points and rebounds and blocks through 10 games this season in a promising start for the Sixers.
The two teams meet again in Detroit on December 7 – and then again in Philadelphia on December 10 – so expect more verbal sparring before Christmas in the East.
