Towns didn’t appear to enjoy it when fighting Embiid during the 76ers’ win over the Timberwolves on Thursday.
And I doubt Towns will appreciate Embiid’s post-game social-media gloating, which veered quite personal.
1. I’m not sure that’s Towns’ mother. The woman looks like Jacqueline Cruz, and contextually, it’d make sense.
2. I’m not sure that’s a middle finger. It might be a pointer finger beckoning Embiid to come get a piece of her. She looked ready to throw down.
Watch her in this video from Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia:
Towns was already livid at Embiid. If that is Cruz, I can barely imagine how enraged Towns would be with Embiid calling her out.
