Quotable: “As far as me and Joel, we are two competitors. Going in, you know (that) and I don’t expect anything less. He is a great player, one of the greatest players in this league and we don’t expect anything less from him. You know things are going to get chippy and it is part of the game.” Celtics guard Marcus Smart on his sometimes, contentious relationship with Embiid.
