Former Kentucky star Karl-Anthony Towns has been suspended two games for his role in an on-court altercation with Philadelphia star Joel Embiid.

In a release by the NBA, both Towns and Embiid will be suspended two games without pay for their roles in the incident on Thursday evening, along with “their continued escalation following the incident.”

The incident occurred with 6:42 remaining in the third quarter of the 76ers’ 117-95 victory over the Timberwolves.

In case you missed the altercation, you can check it out below:

After the game, Embiid took to Twitter to throw shots at Towns, saying “I was raised around lions and a cat pulled on me tonight lmao. Got his mom giving middle fingers. That’s some SERIOUS REAL ESTATE #FightNight #IAintNoB—–“.

Towns was quick with a response of his own…

Towns will begin his suspension on Saturday, Nov. 2 when the Timberwolves visit the Washington Wizards.

    2 games? Fair enough… but what about Ben Simmons? You get 2 games for wrestling somebody, you should get a lot more for jumping on a dudes back and choking him out!

      4ever once again you’re 100% correct. He had no business putting KAT in a choke hold. Should be assault charges brought against him

    And Embiid’s suspension? I feel like that should be something included in the article… this is basic stuff, Jack. The incompetence of KSR “journalists” is staggering

      Apology should be coming from gobble. Speaks about how bad KSR is YET he/she/it is here reading it and making comments. Then to be totally wrong because he/she/it failed to/can’t read correctly is even worse. You are strong enough to say things, be strong enough to admit your incompetence and make an apology to Jack.
