Watch: Eric Bledsoe ejected for skirmish with Joel Embiid
Joel Embiid and Eric Bledsoe got in a skirmish early in Thursday night’s Milwaukee Bucks-Philadelphia 76ers game that resulted in an ejection.
Just a few minutes into the TNT game, Bledsoe and Embiid traded shoves while fighting for positioning for a rebound. Embiid shoved Bledsoe, Bledsoe pushed back, then Embiid tossed the ball at Bledsoe, who fired it right back.
The rest of the players on the court converged, leading them to be separated.
