Embiid not fully cleared but may still play

Mitchell Leff

Joel Embiid is exhausted of "being babied" by the Philadelphia 76ers, but the team listed him as "doubtful" for Game 3 against the Miami Heat due to a facial fracture.

Heat G Dwayne Wade turned back the clock on Monday night, leading all scorers with 28 points.

Philadelphia was 7 of 36 from 3-point territory and shot just 41.7 percent overall in playing their second straight playoff game without injured center Joel Embiid.

The pressure appeared to get to the Sixers as they shot 41.7 per cent, down from their 47 per cent during the regular season.

When Embiid does get back into the lineup - whether that's Thursday or Saturday - Brown expects him to make an immediate impact on defense.

After the loss, 76ers coach Brett Brown seemed understanding of Embiid's emotions. But I do know the spirit in which he delivers that Tweet. reflects my conversations with him. "And now we've got to incorporate him into what we've been doing".

The series is tied 1-1, and Embiid has missed both games.

Ben Simmons led the Sixers with 24 points and Dario Saric had 23.

What is interesting is that in Game 1, the Sixers had just four fast-break points, compared to 14 for the Heat. If all goes according to plan, the Sixers will use some of the factors from Game 2 to improve moving forward to give them a better chance of taking down the Heat. "I love the stage".

The Heat and 76ers are now tied 1-1 in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Wade added 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals off the bench for a total of 43.9 FanDuel points. The Heat use the home court advantage to take the lead in the series. Philadelphia is 1-5 ATS in its last six following a double-digit home loss, 3-10 ATS in its last 13 on Thursdays, and 0-3-1 ATS in its last four trips to Miami. Don't be surprised if those trends continue. The reality is the Sixers would not have won 52 game and clinched the No. 3 seed had Embiid not laid the foundation in his own 63 games played. That should help the visitors keep up with a Miami squad that is firing on the offensive end of the floor thanks in part to Wade and Johnson. That record was good enough for the third seed in the Eastern Conference.

So what can the Sixers do to counter the physical play of the Heat?
