Joel Embiid didn’t mince words in his evaluation of the officials after his Philadelphia 76ers lost 112-109 to the Eastern Conference rival Boston Celtics on Tuesday.
The Sixers big man was visibly upset late in the fourth quarter after failing to force a foul call on Celtics center Al Horford, leading to a Marcus Smart dunk on the other end to put Boston up four with 24 seconds remaining.
Embiid released his frustration post-game, saying:
“The referees fucking suck” before getting up and leaving.

The 24-year-old, who is likely to face a fine for his outburst, finished with 23 points and 14 rebounds in 37 minutes.
Still trusting the process.
