Late in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers, Joel Embiid took Russell Westbrook out.
Westbrook was on a fast break when Embiid pretty much tackled him, kneeing him in the chest before the guard hit the court hard.

Westbrook had to be restrained by teammates and was justifiably upset about the extremely hard foul.
A bit later, Embiid poured some salt on the wound after Westbrook fouled out of the game.
