Late in the 4th quarter of Saturday’s Thunder and Sixers game, Joel Embiid took the saying “no easy baskets” to an all new level.  He straight up tackled Russell Westbrook, as the Thunder star was attempting to score a fastbreak basket.

After milking the tackle for a few moments, Westbrook popped up and was looking to throw hands.  He was ultimately held back by his teammates and OKC won the game 117-115.

During his postgame interview Westbrook was asked if he and Embiid were still cool.  He responded by dropping an “F” bomb.

Things should be interesting when these two teams play each other again at the end of February.
