This is the second of back-to-back games between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Miami Heat. The first one in Philly ended with Miami winning, and this takes place in Florida.
Before betting on the 76ers vs. Heat
The Sixers had five wins in a row but lost the last two events, both at home. The first was against the Boston Celtics, 110-107, with Jayson Tatum’s game-winning three. Embiid’s whole-court three didn’t count, and, the 76ers lost. The game against the Heat was also pretty close, 101-99, and in this clash, Jimmy Butler was lethal for the rivals.
Embiid had 27 points and 12 boards, while James Harden scored 20 with 12 dimes and six assists. Tyrese Maxey entered off the bench to drop 23.
Miami had a terrible stretch losing four events in a row, one at home, to the Nuggets and three on the road, in Brooklyn, Miami, and Charlotte. The victory at the Wells Fargo Center could be pretty important and a big morale boost. If used well, Jimmy Butler’s dagger might be the campaign’s turning point. He ended the night one assist short of a triple-double with 23 points and 11 boards.
Gabe Vincent scored 14, Bam Adebayo and Max Strus each added 13, and Victor Oladipo added 11 points. A solid three-point shooting, 15-for-37, was the difference-maker in the end, as well as Miami’s solid control of the glass, even though they had just 37 boards, the Sixers had 39.
