Russell Westbrook believes he was fouled by Joel Embiid in Sixers win

With the Philadelphia 76ers leading by a point lat at Arena,  Los Angeles Lakers star guard Russell Westbrook had a full head of steam  as he began to make his way toward the basket

Westbrook is one of the more explosive players in the history of the game so despite having two timeouts, coach Darvin Ham allowed Westbrook to so his thing out on the floor

It ended poorly as he was blocked by Sixers star big man Joel Embiid in order to preserve a 113-112 win for Philadelphia. Embiid also got some help as Georges Niang stepped up to provide some more defensive coverage

Afterward, in reaction to the play, Westbrook claimed that he was fouled by Embiid on the play. He stated that Embiid pulled his arm down and he couldn’t get the shot off

It was a bang-bang play at the end so that’s a tough play for the officials to call, but the Sixers were on the right end of it in this one. Philadelphia is now 2-0 to begin the five-game road trip and they will now look to keep going in the right direction against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday
