Does Kevin Huerter Deserve Jail-time for Denying Embiid 50 Points?

As I’m sure everyone knows, Joel Embiid eviscerated the Atlanta Hawks tonight setting his new career-high with 49 points. But, he had an opportunity to eclipse 50 for the first time in his career. That is until the redheaded step-child, Kevin Huerter, decided to rudely steal the ball from poor Joel down 17 points with only 20 seconds on the clock. Joel responded not with words, but with action by flipping him a Hawk sized bird following the act.
I do not take sending people to the slammer lightly, but would we be justified issuing a warrant for his arrest? How much of a sore loser do you have to be to steal the ball from a 25-year-old kid having the time of his life? Not only that, but you are denying him a seat on the throne of 50 point scorers in NBA history. Does Kevin not think Joel should be on this illustrious list? Well, I think actions speak louder than words.
