HOUSTON (AP) Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor says he's embarrassed about a Boston nightclub scuffle captured on video and is dealing with the team and league on possible discipline.

"It was definitely dumb on my part," Okafor said following a shootaround Friday, several hours before the Houston Rockets were scheduled to host the Sixers. "Something I'm embarrassed about. Still dealing with the league and the team but I'm not happy about it all. We're still going through the process of what we're going to do."

Okafor said he reacted to heckling about the 0-16 Sixers, the only team in the NBA without a win. He said he told 76ers coach Brett Brown about what happened during the team's plane ride to Houston.
