"Stop B*tching About Calls!": Embiid Tells Nick Nurse

The Toronto Raptors have had a rough go of it through two games with the Philadelphia 76ers, and particularly with potential league MVP Joel Embiid. He's manhandled the shorthanded Raptors and has been to the free throw line 25 times in the first two games. Toronto coach Nick Nurse has been very vocal about the whistle going in Embiid's favor through the first two games, and the two of them had a little "chat" near the end of Game 2.

"He's a great coach," Embiid said. "Obviously, he's been able to accomplish (a lot) and always been a big fan. But, I told him, respectfully, I told him to stop b*tching about calls." 

Embiid actually had more trips to the line in Game Two (14) than the entire Raptors team had (12). "If you're going to triple-team somebody all game, they are bound to get to the free throw line, or if you're going to push them off and try to hold them and all that stuff, they're bound to get to the free throw line," continued Embiid.

Nurse remembers the conversation thusly: "He was saying to me that, 'I'm going to keep making all the free throws if you keep fouling', and I said 'Well, you might have to.' But (he's) a good player, man. I got a lot of respect for him. He's certainly playing great here."
