The Hawks fell to the 76ers 112-129 at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday night in Philadelphia.
76ers center Joel Embiid gave Kevin Huerter the one finger salute after Huerter stole the ball in the game’s final moments.
Joel Embiid was feeling good after dropping a career-high 49 pts. Was all prepared to dribble out the clock & gloat. Then Kevin Huerter came along & stole the ball. Embiid flipped him the bird, then, after realizing he got caught up, apologized. pic.twitter.com/NvOteE3mRC
