Joel Embiid probably won’t have much to say about that one.

Facing the team that eliminated him last year in the Toronto Raptors, the Philadelphia 76ers center was held scoreless for the first time in his career on Monday en route to a 101-96 loss.

Looking miserable in the paint, Embiid went 0-for-11 from the field with 13 rebounds, four turnovers and five fouls. He even missed three free throw attempts.

Prior to Monday, Embiid had never scored fewer than five points in his career.

Making Embiid’s night — and the Raptors’ defensive effort — even crazier is that the Raptors did this despite missing 2018-19 blocks leader Serge Ibaka, as well as Kyle Lowry. Toronto fans seemed quite aware of how their old rival was doing.

Not to mention the most famous of Raptors fans.

Without their MVP candidate scoring, the Sixers were led by a 25-point night from Josh Richardson and 18 points from Tobias Harris, with Ben Simmons contributing 14 assists.

Raptors star Pascal Siakam continued his breakout year with 25 points, including this filthiness.
