Joel Embiid on getting into it with Carmelo Anthony: "He just said something like 'Don't do this with me' or something like that. I'm like, 'dude, you're not going to do anything.' ... Guys in the league, I mean, I can't remember the last time someone actually threw a punch at somebody, so I'm not worried about anybody. I've seen that a lot all over the place, about people talking about people coming back at me; I'm African, so don't try me."

In the wildest game of the NBA season so far, the Thunder held off the 76ers in triple-overtime, 119-117. It was a long road getting to a final score, with it starting with the Thunder not scoring a point in the final 5:23 of regulation to blow a nine-point lead, then coming back from five down with a minute left in the first overtime, then Andre Roberson missed a point blank layup, but came back and finished his do-over at the end of the third overtime. Westbrook was terrific and terrible all at once, with a triple-double that included 23 missed shots. In the end, OKC gets back to .500 and wins their sixth out eight.
