Embiid was called for five fouls during the Sixers' 112–109 loss.
Joel Embiid had something to say about the officiating during the Sixers' loss to the Celtics.
After suffering a 112–109 defeat, Embiid took the podium Tuesday night, ending his press conference with some strong thoughts about the game's referees.
"The referees f------ suck," the center said immediately before walking away.
Embiid finished the game with 23 points and 14 rebounds but was called for five fouls on the night. The All-Star center battled against a physical Al Horford for most of the game.
In the final minute of the game, Embiid failed to convert a potential game-tying two-pointer after Horford appeared to hit him on the arm. Embiid was fined $25,000 on Wednesday for his comments.
The Celtics and Sixers are now both 36–21 and tied in the Eastern Conference.
