Karl-Anthony Towns and Joel Embiid have been ejected after an altercation in the third quarter with the Sixers holding a comfortable lead.

I don’t have the entire thing, but the two players got locked up in the backcourt after a Wolves turnover, and it led to fisticuffs that ultimately involved Jeff Teague and Ben Simmons as well, though they remained in the game.

It appeared to me that Embiid went to KAT’s face, which set Towns off. There will be suspensions from this, something the Wolves can ill afford.
