Their altercation began when Embiid waved Thunder center Stephen Adams off the court after the Kiwi fouled out.
The win brings Oklahoma City back up the.500 mark, led by yet another triple-double from point guard Russell Westbrook. Westbrook led the Thunder with a triple-double of 27 points, 17 rebounds and 15 assists.
Adams will miss today's game against the Knicks in NY while he works his way through the mandated return-to-participation protocol.
Adams has always been considered one of the Thunder's most durable players, appearing in 160 of 164 games combined during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons. Anthony played 47 minutes, which is equivalent to nearly a full National Basketball Association game.
Thunder guard/forward Andre Roberson has missed the last two games with a sprained left ankle. They wouldn't win another period until the third overtime.
The Thunder had jumped out to a 17-point lead with 5:45 remaining in the first half, but the Sixers fought their way back.
"He told me to go home".
Anthony, Westbrook and George combined for 75 points while the rest of the team just had 44.
Saric tossed up an airball as time expired and the game went into a second overtime. Andre Roberson had a look near the basket that would have won the game, but his lay-in came up empty, sending the contest to a third and final frame. Patrick Patterson will have to find holes around the 3-point line to get open opportunities, not put the ball on the floor to shoot the 3. Then against the Thunder he caught fire and scored 14 on 4-of-7 (all three-pointers) for his 10th double-digit outing of the season. But you know, he told me to go home, and this is my home and I ain't going nowhere.
