Heat end Sixers' streak to tie series at 1-1

In each of his two games in Miami, Embiid also made three three-pointers.

Miami substituted Dwyane Wade back into the game while the 76ers countered with Robert Covington.

After the game, Embiid expressed his frustration at not being on the court via his Instagram account.

Philadelphia 76ers, welcome to the real National Basketball Association playoffs. The Heat were in control for basically all of tonight's game and pulled out a Game 2 win over the 76ers. "We had to prepare for Embiid leading up to the first game because we didn't know for absolutely certain he wasn't going to play until I saw him not walk out there".

As it was in Game 1, the Wells Fargo Center was a deafening convex well of sound, bubbling up at a fevered pitch as fans watched every possession with baited breath and intensity. It will be interesting to see how Philly responds on Thursday.

The Heat scored five quick points to open the fourth, going back up 91-75 just 56 seconds in.

Simmons led the Sixers with 24 points and Saric had 23.

The Sixers' 3-point shooting regressed to the mean.

Wade finished with 28 points off the bench, shooting 11-of-17 from the field.

"If it was my decision, I would play, but I can't get back out on the court if I don't have the OK from them", Embiid told ESPN on Saturday.

However, it was the second quarter that proved to be the most decisive in the match.

Philly missed some open 3-pointers, but Miami's physical defense deserves credit for disrupting shooters.

Why does T.J.

The Warriors - still missing the injured talisman Stephen Curry - outclassed a physical San Antonio from three-point range in a devastating display of scoring. Fultz, who may still be in a fragile mental state anyway, may be questioning why he didn't play. "I can't give you like a flawless answer of what that looks like".

The Sixers trailed by as many as 16 in the opening minute of the 4th quarter following a James Johnson dunk, but the Sixers went on a 12-2 run capped by a Simmons dunk to draw the game within 93-87 with 8:30 left. Why substitute? Finish with what got you there.

Miami, with a roster of role players - but ones who are versatile, defend, and play smart - adjusted after getting blown out in the second half of Game 1. Miami wasn't much better, however Miami had players that could go one-on-one and get their own shot.

At the same time, the Sixers weren't scoring the same way.
