Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns were ejected for fighting in the third quarter of Wednesday night's game between the Sixers and Timberwolves in Philadelphia.

The two centers sparked a brawl after Embiid trapped Towns in the corner on a double team, locking arms and shoving each other at Minnesota's end of the floor.

Towns ended up throwing a punch at Embiid and missing before putting the Sixers' big man in a headlock. Ben Simmons also took part in the fight, appearing to have his forearm around Towns' throat.

Teammates and coaches separated Towns and Embiid before both were ejected from the game.
