Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid is fined after he criticized officials in Game 4 of his loss to the team

Philadelphia 76ers star center Joel EmbiidFor criticizing the officiating at Saturday's Game 4 loss, the victim was fined $15,000 Toronto Raptors.

Embiid is currently dealing with a right thumb sprain and gave an extended golf clap for the Scott Foster, Ed Malloy, and Rodney Mott officiating crew on his way to leave the court.

“Well, well, I'm gonna listen to my own advice” Embiid declared on Saturday. “But, as I was doing at end of game [with the clapping]They did an excellent job. They did a great job today. It felt like they only had one job when they arrived at the office tonight. And they did it well. We are very proud of them.

When asked if his “job” was making sure that there was a Game 5 in the future, Embiid answered “I don't think so.” … You can still figure it. They did an amazing job.

“Like I said I will take my own advice, and not complain about it. If they don't call it next time, I'll be more aggressive offensively as well as defensively. If they're going to call it fouls or not, they have to earn it and be physically physical.

Embiid attempted nine free throws during Game 4 and is now averaging close to 11 per series. In Game 5, the Sixers will attempt to defeat the Raptors in Philadelphia.
