The war of words between Joel Embiid and Andre Drummond seems to have just begun.

After Embiid scored 30 points against Drummond and the Pistons, the 76ers center didn't hold back words about the matchup.

"Defensively, he doesn't play any defense," Embiid told The Philadelphia Inquirer.

"When we started the game, he was being aggressive, and he was talking, too," Embiid said. "So what I was like, 'You want to do that? I'm going to kick your [butt] then.' So that's what I did."

Drummond responded on Tuesday, citing inexperience against Embiid as the reason he struggled against the Sixers emerging star.



"See you Dec 2nd," Drummond tweeted. 

That's the next time the two teams meet.
