The Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors have been having a bit of a back-and-forth in terms of criticizing the officials and getting into it with each other in terms of their physical play.

It started when Raptors coach Nick Nurse criticized the officials in Game 1 and then did it again before Game 2. He was upset with the way that the officials have been letting Joel Embiid get away with some elbows and things of that nature.

Embiid fired back at Nurse to stop complaining about calls, but now Embiid has been caught with his own criticism. He was golf clapping at the officials after their Game 4 loss on Saturday and then he explained his reasoning for it afterward. The NBA then slapped Embiid with a $15K fine.

Things have been chippy in this series, which they should as it is the playoffs, but with Embiid now being fined, he and the Sixers will look to get the job done in Game 5 on Monday.
