Mike Scott gave charged response when asked about Eric Bledsoe scuffle

Embiid responded by throwing the ball at Bledsoe, while Bledsoe responded to Embiid's throw by throwing the ball even harder at Embiid. Embiid and Scott made a beeline for Bledsoe, but were restrained by officials.

Monroe, a first-round pick (seventh overall) by Detroit in 2010 out of Georgetown, has career averages of 13.2 points and 8.3 rebounds in 629 games.

Unimpressed with Bledsoe's conduct, Scott opted to throw the ball at the Bucks guard himself, forcing referees to step in and defuse what looked to be developing into a brawl.

As refs and coaches were in the middle of pulling Bucks and 76ers players away from each other to prevent a mild altercation from turning into something more serious, a man looking suspiciously like Stephen A. Smith came sprinting on to the court to help squash the skirmish.

Embiid and Philadelphia's Mike Scott also received technicals. He is expected to miss two weeks.

To say the former Georgetown star has bounced around over the last two seasons would be a huge understatement when taking into consideration since Monroe has seen stints with the Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns, Boston Celtics, and Toronto Raptors.

Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid recently said that he's the most unstoppable player in the National Basketball Association, and he has an argument given the dominance he has shown in his short time in the league so far.


"That's unfortunate. Neither team wants to have somebody missing, whether it's injury or somebody getting thrown out".

Embiid was happy and actually gloated about the fact that Bledsoe was ejected.

"[Bledsoe] will be smarter and better for it".

Khris Middleton added 22 points and George Hill had 20 for the Bucks, who locked up home-court advantage with three regular-season games remaining.

"It's incredible, man. It's a journey, a six-year journey", Antetokounmpo said of the Bucks' rise from 15 wins his rookie season to this point.

Antetokounmpo scored 12 points in the first quarter as the Bucks took a 30-26 lead into the second.
