The fight for title of the NBA's best big man got physical tonight. Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns got into a scrum during Wednesday's Philadelphia 76ers - Minnesota Timberwolves game. The two started bumping each other and KAT appeared to try to throw a punch as they wrapped each other up.
This is two massive men going at it. They are both around seven-feet tall and 250-pounds. This was also a matchup of Kentucky versus Kansas. Embiid celebrated the ejection by shadowboxing.
Towns is second in the league in scoring and third in rebounding. Embiid's numbers are very similar, but this was only his second game of the season. They both got the rest of tonight off and might be looking at long weekends.
UPDATE: Here's Ben Simmons breaking up the fight by... putting KAT in a choke hold.
