If there's anything we've learned about Raptors fans after last night's game, it's that they are absolutely ruthless. The Raptors faced off against the Philadelphia 76ers on November 25 and managed to pull off a beautiful win. To add insult to injury for the 76ers, star player Joel Embiid had the first scoreless game of his career on Monday night.

Raptors fans took the chance to make sure Embiid remembers the night on and off the court, even through Twitter.

Facing off for the first time since the NBA playoffs, Raptors triumphed over the Sixers 101-96. Siakam led the team in points, scoring an impressive 25 total throughout the night.

Siakam has undoubtedly dominated the game. Some fans even think he might be a better player than DeMar DeRozan ever was. 

Sixer Joel Embiid, on the other hand, scored zero points, a first in his NBA career, according to the Toronto Star.

"I would have never thought I would be here talking about zero points in an NBA game, but it is what it is," Embiid said according to Sportsnet.

"Some nights you make shots, some nights you don’t. Some nights you’re hot, some nights you’re cold."

It seems that the Raptors' defence was, once again, too much for Embiid to handle. People are commending Raptor Marc Gasol for being the powerhouse behind Embiid's scoreless night.

Gasol made sure that Embiid's plays were unmatched against his stellar defensive skills. According to Sportsnet, almost no other player in the NBA has been able to find success defensively against Embiid.

With Embiid making zero buckets and Raptors playing such an impressive game, fans have taken to Twitter to celebrate and poke fun at the player.

Even Drizzy couldn't help himself.

 

Just this week, Raptor fans were shook that Canada's NBA team didn't even make ESPN's top 10 list for the week. After this game, there's no doubt that the Raptors are on a roll.

The Toronto Raptors will face off against the New York Knicks and Orlando Magic before the month ends. Fingers crossed they continue to dominate.

At least Embiid knows that we're not to be messed with.
