Sixers Lose To Heat As Joel Embiid Expresses Frustration


Embiid is a competitor, so of course he's extremely frustrated when he can't be out there to help win games, especially when he feels he's ready to go. Why substitute? Finish with what got you there. "As he showed tonight, he still has it".

San Antonio started strongly, with LaMarcus Aldridge - who finished with 34 points - driving the Spurs forward as they shaded the first period 25-23.

The Philadelphia 76ers lost Game 2 of their first-round series against the Miami Heat on Monday night, thanks largely to Dwyane Wade turning back the clock and scoring 28 points.

"But in the second half we matched that effort level and physicality and were able to get that upper hand".

Game 3 is on Friday (NZT) as the series shifts to San Antonio.

But Trump is unhappy about trade between the two countries, which he has described as "not fair" and "not open". Abe will want to reinforce the idea that maximum pressure must continue until we get complete denuclearization.

The 36-year-old Wade scored 28 points in 25 minutes from the bench as Miami stunned the 76ers' home crowd into silence with a 113-103 victory.

It was a superb display from Wade, a three-time National Basketball Association champion who started this season with Cleveland before re-joining Miami in February before the trade deadline.

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.

Goran Dragic added 20 points and James Johnson had 18 as the Heat evened the best-of-seven playoff series.

That's when Wade and the Miami defense changed everything. "I told myself, 'If they do that play later, I'm going to steal it, ' because I could see the pressure that we were putting on the elbow guy and where the pass needed to go".

Miami's starters moved the ball and forced the young Sixers to make decisions, something Philly was inconsistent at.

Before Game 1, Embiid said he felt healthy enough to play.

In a post to his Story, the Sixers center wrote that he was "f-ing sick and exhausted of being babied".

"When you're seeking to become a whole team, you need Joel Embiid", Brown said. Whether Kevin Hart will be court side again at the American Airlines Arena for Game 3 on Thursday night remains to be seen.

For the 76ers, Ben Simmons' 24 points, eight rebounds and eight assists were in vain. Only issue was all the illegal screens most of the Miami players set most of the evening, not just Hassan Whiteside.

"I'm guessing watching his team claw their way back and then have the game slip out of their fingers while he was stuck on the bench got to him".
