  • Sixers’ Ben Simmons listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game in Detroit

Despite the fact that it appeared Embiid flopped, he was ecstatic, gesturing for the ref to toss Drummond, and taunting the crowd. "You know, Blake [Griffin] had a good game, and they were able to pull it off, so we got another one tomorrow, and we got to do a better job". "All I was doing was talking and playing basketball and trying to win the game".

Late in the fourth quarter, Andre Drummond was assessed a second technical foul and was ejected from the game after an incident involving Embiid.

After the game, Embiid maintained he had the upper hand in the positional battle against Drummond, going as far as to suggest he owned "a lot of real estate in his head".

Oil recovers alongside USA stock market
Prices had slumped as forecasters including Opec and the International Energy Agency predicted slower oil-demand growth for 2019. There have been reports that companies in different parts of the world would defy sanctions and continue buying Iranian oil.

This was a bit of a sloppy night from Embiid - it never felt like he found the rhythm that he had in the previous three games.

The two big men went back-and-forth at each other with Embiid dropping 33 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists and Drummond finishing with 14 points, 16 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks in their intense duel. The NBA ruling stated that Embiid flopped on the play. It's gotten to the point where Embiid openly claims that Drummond can't guard him.

Then, down the stretch of regulation, the teams traded the lead six times, with three ties.
