Watch 76ers vs. Heat Game 3, series schedule, TV channel, online stream
The Miami Heat were run off the floor in the second half of Game 1 of their first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers, as the Sixers took Game 1 by 27 points. And after the first few minutes on Monday night, it looked like Game 2 would be more of the same. But the Heat regrouped, and used a huge second quarter to take control of the game. Dwyane Wade was tremendous, pouring in 28 points, and coming up with multiple big plays down the stretch to put an end to the Sixers’ comeback attempt.
When the final buzzer sounded, the Heat had a 113-103 victory. Now tied 1-1, the series shifts back to Miami for Game 3 on Thursday night. The big question, of course, is what will Joel Embiid’s status be? The big man has cleared the concussion protocol, but it’s still unclear if he’ll be able to suit up by Thursday night. Obviously, adding him to the lineup would be a huge boost for the Sixers. Regardless of whether he plays or not, it will be interesting to see how the Sixers respond after facing adversity for the first time in over a month.
