During Game 4 of the Sixers-Celtics series, Philly’s big man Joel Embiid did a little trash talking to Marcus Morris of the Celtics. Instead of engaging in the trash talk, Morris reminded Embiid of the current series record with his fingers right in his face.
It’s hard to talk too much trash when your team is down 3-0 in the series, even if you win Game 4. Not to mention the fact that no team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in the playoffs.

It’s a wild move for Embiid to be talking trash, to Morris of all people, down three games. Morris doesn’t play and neither do the basketball gods.
