Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid previously characterized any beef with Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside as "all fun," but it appears there may be some legitimate bad blood between the two.

Embiid and Whiteside were involved in a physical play early in the third quarter of Thursday's game, as the Heat big man took what appeared to be a phantom blow to the face.

After the game, Embiid had some words for Whiteside, per Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia:

Whiteside's Heat got the best of Embiid's Sixers at AmericanAirlines Arena, 108-99.
