Following his team's 109-99 victory Saturday, Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid continued his trolling of Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond.

Though Embiid used the wrong Twitter handle to reach out to Drummond, his trolling of the Pistons big man this season began after the 76ers lost to the Pistons on Oct. 23.

"I think I own a lot of real estate in his head," Embiid said after that game. "We lost, so I'm not supposed to talk trash, but he knows damn well that he can't guard me."

Embiid tried to prove his point with Saturday's 39-point, 17-rebound performance. Drummond had just 8 points and 9 rebounds in the matinee affair.

"He's a fun matchup," Embiid said. "I feel like I dominate every game, especially against him."

Despite the win and the strong performance, Embiid did have some criticism of his game. After scoring 32 of his 39 points in the first half, he told NBC Sports Philadelphia, "In the second half I sucked."
