The NBA announced that they had fined Justise Winslow $15,000 for intentionally stepping on Joel Embiid’s face mask in the second quarter of Thursday’s Game 3 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

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.
