All seems to be good again in Sixers land, at least for now. 

Joel Embiid went for 26 points, nine rebounds, and one massive block on Marcus Morris helping the Sixers beat the Clippers 110-103 on Tuesday night. 

After the game, Embiid said on TNT that he "loves his city.

"I'm always gonna both (the hero and villain)," Embiid said. "I love my city. They showed me a lot of love since I've been here. We go through our ups and downs...there's nothing more. We're just playing with each other, having fun. I'm back to being a good a**hole. I'm just gonna do my thing."

Of course, those comments come after Embiid took to Instagram calling himself a villain and flirting with Jimmy Butler about joining the Heat
