Update: Drummond has responded to Embiid with a very simple “See you Dec 2nd” tweet:
See you Dec 2nd😏

Mark this one on your calendars.
Embiid hung 30 points and nine rebounds on Drummond in the Sixers’ 97-86 road win, making 11-of-15 shots in 28 minutes of action.
Rookie Ben Simmons recorded his first career triple-double.
“Defensively, he doesn’t play any defense,” Embiid said of what he saw. “When we started the game, he was being aggressive and he was talking, too. … So what I was like [in my mind] ‘You want to do that? I’m going to kick your [butt] then. So that’s what I did.”
His domination was so obvious that one Pistons fan yelled “You [stink], Andre” after an Embiid basket.
“In my mind, I was like, ‘You want to switch up, because you are playing against me,’” he said of Drummond. ”‘You want to be all physical and talk [trash].’ So I was like, ‘you are going to get your [butt beat].’ I love that.”
