Joel Embiid will enter Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals Sunday a poorer man.

The NBA MVP runner-up has been fined $35,000 for taking part in an altercation (and apparently being unwilling to discuss the details after the game) in Game 6 of the Philadelphia 76ers-Atlanta Hawks series:

Embiid and the Sixers will attempt Sunday to avoid being eliminated in the second round of the postseason for the third time in four years. In the first six games of the series, Embiid is averaging 30.3 points per game with 13 rebounds and four assists.
