76ers lose Game 2 to Miami 113-103

76ers lose Game 2 to Miami 113-103

Dwyane Wade scored 21 of his game-high 28 points in the first half, passing Larry Bird for 10th all-time on the National Basketball Association postseason scoring list, to lead the Miami Heat to a 113-103 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday in Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia 76ers enjoyed a 130-103 victory against the Miami Heat in their first playoff game since 2012. However, a dominant second half display from the Heat along with a vintage performance from Dwyane Wade who scored 28 points, three assists and seven rebounds ended that run as the series now heads to Miami for the next two games. But Wade helped the Heat finish it off.

After trailing by as many as 16 points in the third quarter the Sixers got back to within two points, but according to Ben Simmons, they needed to get back into the game much earlier.

All the while, Wade couldn't miss.

Embiid, who averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 63 games in the regular season, has cleared the NBA's concussion protocol.

After Monday's game, Embiid took to Instagram to vent his frustrations, writing, "F--ing sick and exhausted of being babied".

Now, the goal for the Heat has to be to limit Whiteside's minutes until Joel Embiid comes back in this series - because that is when Whiteside can have an impact. I felt tonight it was a really strong example of how you wished you had him, " he said. "And when he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated, and we respect his frustration. It's born out of competitiveness and it's born out of him wanting to be with his team", he said.

For the second consecutive postseason game and 10th in a row overall, the All-Star big man was forced to watch from the sideline while he recovers from surgery for an orbital fracture. He has been fitted for a mask and before Game 2 did an on-court workout that had fans reacting to his shots. This will give the young players confidence and good principles to stand on while preparing for game 3 on the road in Miami.

The Heat had a lot it wanted to improve upon after getting crushed by the Sixers in Game 1 of these playoffs.
