There’s no use crying over spilled milk with the Philadelphia 76ers already out of commission in the 2024 NBA Playoffs, but no one can stop anyone from the franchise from telling their truth in light of their controversial defeat to the New York Knicks in their first-round series despite being initially billed as favorites to come out of the matchup.

Poor officiating mired the 76ers in their tough, nail-biting series against the second-seeded Knicks, which saw five out of six games be decided by seven points or less. Calls clearly favored New York throughout the series, and at the end, Philadelphia couldn’t do anything but leave their fate to the fishy hands of the officials.

Now, it seems like the madness won’t be stopping anytime soon.

Joel Embiid’s cryptic post proves the 76ers were right all along

Following New York’s narrow Game 1 win over Indiana a few days back, Joel Embiid, clearly uncoincidentally, went on to indirectly express an oddly familiar feeling on social media.

In all likelihood, Embiid was probably referring to the questionable kicked ball violation called on Indiana when it was subsequently revealed that the officials made a wrong call on Pacers wing Aaron Nesmith. The Knicks ultimately survived the Pacers in regulation by just four points, but the controversial sequence once again brought up the consistent patterns of officiating since the 76ers were the ones on the opposing side of the Knicks.

Fast forward to Game 2, and the Pacers again felt that they got the short end of the stick when it came to the officiating. Alas, Indiana’s side will reportedly plead to the league about the matter, even specifying the plays which they claimed were rued by missed calls. The number? 78 staggering missed calls averred by the Pacers through only a couple of games.

Clearly, the recurring one-sided officiating favoring New York has been pretty apparent since their bout with the Philadelphia 76ers. And while they can’t do anything about it now, the current struggles of the Indiana Pacers when it comes to the officials only proves that they were right all along.
