The move didn’t faze Embiid, who said that he has “about 50” masks and added “it’s going to take much more than that to get me out of this series. I’m going to be a nightmare for them, too.”
Erik Spoelstra said that he spoke to Winslow about the act and said he accepts the fine. Winslow, for his part, said that he wasn’t “going to talk” about it.
Spoelstra on Winslow's fine: "We talked to him about it. We accept that fine, he accepts it. He'll pay for it."— Anthony Chiang (@Anthony_Chiang) April 21, 2018
