Philadelphia 76ers rookie Joel Embiid made a splash over the summer when he tried to use Twitter to get LeBron James to take his talents to the City of Brotherly Love, so when the Sixers got the better of the Cavs on Monday, Embiid could not help himself.

Granted neither Embiid nor James played in the game, with Embiid still rehabbing his foot after an offseason surgery, and James taking some time off to let strains in his lower back and left knee recover, but the Philadelphia center's point still stands.

The Cavaliers are now just three games over .500 after the 95-92 loss to the 76ers, who grabbed their fifth win of the season.
