Joel Embiid takes jab at Terry Rozier on Instagram after win
Joel Embiid is the master troll of the NBA and was at it again on Wednesday.
Embiid put up 37 points and 22 rebounds in a 118-115 win over the Boston Celtics in what was the game of the night. Embiid being Embiid of course had to post on social media after the win and was sure to take a shot at an opponent.
The Sixers big man posted photos of the game on Instagram and marked his location as “Lametown.” As Adam Himmelsbach pointed out, that was a reference to Boston’s Terry Rozier calling Embiid “lame” in an interview. Himmelsbach’s post has two screenshots breaking it down:

Embiid and Rozier have history as the two got in a shoving match during the playoffs last year.
Embiid has somewhat taken things easy on social media before ramping back up on Wednesday night. His last great post came after a win over the Timberwolves in January. He better make sure he can continue to back it all up in case the teams meet in the postseason.
