Sixers' Joel Embiid doubtful to play In Game 3 vs. Heat

After scoring his 16th point in Game 2 against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade moved passed Hall of Famer and former Celtic great Larry Bird on the list of most career points in National Basketball Association playoffs history.

"I hate this feeling but maybe it's a good reminder for everybody for next game to lock in", Simmons said.

The Sixers were 7-for-36 from three-point range (19.4%) in Game 2.

"It's just in my DNA", Wade said. Miami has been willing to aggressively cheat on Philadelphia's off-ball screens in order to deny clean looks, so expect the Sixers to find some open back cuts before getting back to their 3-point launching ways. The Sixers won the first nine games without him, but the streak ended with Monday's loss to the Heat in Game 2, which evened the series at 1. "What i can say is there is a very unified effort with his representation and the people around him. with the people that did the operation, the doctors, with our medical staff, with the team, with me, (and with) the coaching staff".

The Philadelphia 76ers are still uncertain when they will have center Joel Embiid back in the lineup.

"I love it", Winslow continued. "That's a lot. So, we've just got to take it one game at a time and adjust on the fly from time out to time out and just take their best blows".

Despite playing in only 27 minutes through two games, Whiteside is still one of Miami's best players as far as I am concerned. "He's a guy who wants to play all the time". The Sixers made a team playoff-record 18 3s in Game 1 and missed a whopping 16 of 18 3s in the first half. Simmons dished out 14 assists.

Simmons, who had a triple-double in the opener, led the Sixers with 24 points and Saric had 23. It is also 5-1 in the Heat's last six against opponents with winning percentages over.600, 4-1-1 in their last six against the Atlantic Division, and 9-3-1 in their last 13 following a win.
