If you're going to wear a protective mask against the Miami Heat, you better make sure to keep it on your face—or at least away from Justise Winslow.

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid was cleared to play against Miami in Game 3 of the opening round of the 2018 NBA playoffs after missing the previous 10 games with an orbital fracture and a concussion suffered on March 28. He did, however, wear a mask with goggles to try to protect his face.

The problem is that it didn't stay on Embiid's head the entire night...and Winslow made him pay for it:

If you come into Winslow's house, don't expect warm hospitality.
