Joel Embiid explains why he gave Kevin Huerter middle finger in Sixers' win over Hawks

While each sport has their own, the one universal rule for all of them revolves around having a big lead and not running up the score. With a career-high 49 points, Joel Embiid had a chance at 50 with the ball in his hands with less than 24 seconds left and the Sixers holding a 17-point lead.
