The 76ers beat the Pacers in a hard-fought game on Saturday.

Indiana assistant coach Dan Burke on Fox Sports Indiana, via The Fieldhouse:

Burke:

I hate that team. I really wanted to win that game. I think Embiid gets away with a bunch of crap the league ignores.

Whoa! Those are strong words, especially from an assistant coach – who, on most teams, are never heard from.

I wonder what bothers Burke so much about Joel Embiid. The flopping? The taunting? The social-media ridiculing? There’s a lot to choose from.
