Ben Simmons and Jusuf Nurkic clearly are not fans of one another.

The two proved as much during their matchup on Saturday when Nurkic's Portland Trail Blazers visited Simmons' Philadelphia 76ers.

After Simmons missed a free throw, Nurkic emphatically yelled out, "Hell no," to which the point forward replied, "You talk a lot of shit for being ass."

Following their matchup, which the Trail Blazers won 130-115 behind Nurkic's 24 points and 10 rebounds, their exchange continued.

"I think I'm better shooter than him. I mean, I'm for sure (a better shooter)," said Nurkic, according to Trail Blazers beat writer Casey Holdahl. "The way he's able to shoot, or not able to shoot, is ridiculous."

Nurkic followed up on his comments with an Instagram post:

Despite the loss, Simmons made solid contributions on the offensive end, tying his season high of 29 points to go along with 10 assists.
