Now it's the 76ers' turn to adjust to the Heat

MIAMI (AP) - Joel Embiid remains listed as doubtful by Philadelphia for Game 3 of the 76ers' Eastern Conference playoff series at Miami on Thursday night.

"I just came in with an aggressive approach", Wade said afterwards. It was a vintage performance from Flash as he dominated the game in the mid-range and set off the Heat's closing sequence with a steal and slam with just over four minutes remaining.

But the Heat won't duplicate what they did Monday night.

Before Monday's 113-103 Game 2 loss to the Miami Heat, the Philadelphia 76ers were winners of 17 straight.

What stood out to me in game two was Ilyasova's tenacity on the boards.

Durant and Thompson both weighed in with 30-point games as the Warriors powered to a 116-101 win that puts the National Basketball Association champions 2-0 up in their best-of-seven series. He took some foul-line jumpers, 3-pointers and then a handful of 40-footers during the portion of the 76ers' time of the floor that was visible to reporters.


"I love it", Winslow continued. Simmons dished out 14 assists.

Sixers Coach Brett Brown was later forced to respond to a profane social media post from injured star Joel Embiid, who wrote of his frustration at being "babied" after watching the defeat from the sidelines. "He's a guy who wants to play all the time".

So what can the Sixers do to counter the physical play of the Heat?

The Heat slowed the game down - exactly the kind of style where the Sixers needed Embiid in the middle - and used a collective of defenders on Ben Simmons that rattled the rookie point guard early. The truer version of the Miami Heat was the team that was steamrolled the second half of Game 1 against the Sixers.

With two full days off for the Sixers prior to Game 3 in Miami, here are three major takeaways from Game 2. The Heat are 18-5-3 ATS in their last 25 against winning opponents, 13-6-3 ATS in their last 22 after scoring at least 100 points in their previous outing, 15-7 ATS in their last 22 conference quarterfinal contests, and 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings between the two teams.
