Joel Embiid ripped the hearts out of Toronto Raptors fans on Wednesday night, and he had some trash talk for Drake afterwards.

Embiid nailed the game-winning shot in overtime of Game 3 between his Philadelphia 76ers and the Raptors (video here). His shot was clutch and came with just 0.9 seconds on the shot clock.

Philly won the game 104-101 in overtime to take a 3-0 series lead.

After the game, House of Highlights’ Caroline Jastremski captured video of Embiid trash-talking Drake, the famed rapper and Raptors ambassador. Beware, the video contains profanity.

“I’m coming for the sweep too,” Embiid was heard saying.

Game 4 of the series will be on Saturday in Toronto with the Sixers aiming for the sweep. That’s some payback for Embiid, whose heart was broken by Kawhi Leonard in 2019.
