Video: Joel Embiid Trolls Donovan Mitchell into a Technical Foul


Donovan Mitchell drove down the right wing and went up for the layup before Joel Embiid helped out and swatted the shot away. He stared at the defeated Mitchell and goated the rookie into a technical when he shoved Embiid, who flopped like a finish to the floor and immediately signaled for the technical, which he received. Then he waved on the crowd in Philly.

So beautifully played!

Classic Jojo.

The incident was definitely the most memorable of a 107-86 Philadelphia 76ers win over the Utah Jazz.

Ben Simmons scored 22 of his 27 points in the second half, including 14 in the third. J.J. Redick netted 20 points, while Embiid added 15 points and 11 boards.

Amir Johnson contributed eight points and 13 rebounds, highlighting a solid effort from the bench.
