The two big men went back-and-forth at each other with Embiid dropping 33 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists and Drummond finishing with 14 points, 16 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks in their intense duel.

After the game, Embiid gave his thoughts on Drummond, continuing his trash talk towards the Pistons big.
It's an interesting question of whether this 3-0 start from the Pistons is a testament to Stan Van Gundy for acquiring most of these players or an indictment on him that they didn't play better before.
