The 76ers head into Tuesday's Game 2 showdown with the Miami Heat riding a 17-game winning streak - including Saturday's 130-103 win at Wells Fargo Center - and with the knowledge that Joel Embiid's return may come sooner than later. Redick, Dario Saric, Ersan Ilyasova, and Marco Belinelli.
Embiid's presence made the Sixers a better defensive team. Sixers point guard Ben Simmons also put on a show, scoring 17 points and coming up just a rebound shy of another triple-double stat line.
Playing in the National Basketball Association playoffs for the first time since 2012, the Philadelphia side made it 17 overall consecutive wins and 9-0 without Embiid when they crushed the Heat in a 130-103 win to take a first round series lead on Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center.
He averaged 22.9 points, 10.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.76 blocks in 63 games this season.
Embiid had told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne prior to Saturday night's playoff opener that he was optimistic about playing in Game 2 or 3. "And it's been determined that he shall not play Game 2 for that reason.".
If Embiid returns sooner than later, the Heat could be in big trouble.
Philadelphia has handled Embiid's absence well. Oh boy. This 76ers team is going to be fun to watch this postseason. He was consistently outworked on the glass and disappeared on offense. Most of the shots, that's the shots, they were making. He was also outplayed and outnumbered in minutes by first-round pick Bam Adebayo. It just depends when the 76ers are willing to let him back on the floor.
The 76ers outscored the Heat 74-43 in the second half after trailing 60-56 at halftime. That contest is Thursday at Miami. Miami will need to focus on protecting the ball against some very stingy Philadelphia defenders in the next game.
