Pascal Siakam on Joel Embiid's Game 4 actions: 'It's all fake toughness' - New Style Motorsport

Raptors forward Pascal Siakam had a lot to say about Joel Embiid following his heroic performance in a season-saving Game 4 win over the 76ers.

Siakam, who scored a playoff career-high 34 points in a 110-102 win, told reporters he objected to Embiid’s actions during Saturday’s game. The MVP candidate seemed notoriously frustrated with Toronto’s officiating and physical defense throughout the contest, and won a technical foul after pushing Siakam while trying to take a timeout late in the fourth quarter.

“I am a competitor. I love to compete. These are the playoffs, the highest level. I don’t mind talking, I just don’t want those dirty plays,” Siakam said. According to TSN Sports’ Josh Lewenberg. “I do not like that. Keep it basketball… At the end of the day, it’s all fake toughness.”
