After the game, Embiid had some words for Whiteside, per Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia:
Jessica Camerato @JCameratoNBCS
Embiid on Whiteside (1/2): "Looking at the replay it looked like I didn’t touch him. Then they called a double foul. Tried hit me in the back, which is kind of dirty because of the fact that I’ve had back problems. So we’re going to see about that. I won’t forget about that..."
Whiteside's Heat got the best of Embiid's Sixers at AmericanAirlines Arena, 108-99.
