Watch: Heat, 76ers scuffle after hard Joel Embiid foul
Things got a bit chippy again in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal between the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers.
A battle for a loose ball, followed by a rather hard foul by Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid, was enough to raise the ire of Miami’s James Johnson, who had to be restrained by players and coaches alike.

Technical fouls were assessed, but the real damage came on the other end of the floor from the scuffle for the loose ball, which knocked Josh Richardson out of the game and sent Justise Winslow for stitches. Richardson was okay.
Miami's Josh Richardson is hopeful to return to Game 4 today, league source tells ESPN. "He's OK," source says.

This has been a rather heated series, and we probably haven’t seen the last of it. The Heat led at halftime as they tried to even things up at 2-2.
