Sixers fall to Heat at home, series even at 1-1

Sixers fall to Heat at home, series even at 1-1

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (3) drives against Philadelphia 76ers guard Marco Belinelli (18) during the second quarter in game two of the first round of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Wells Fargo Center. Embiid fractured his orbital bone and suffered a concussion during the collision.

He posted an Instagram story Monday saying he was "sick and exhausted of being babied", and the Heat's aggressive style and defense intensified without Embiid in the lineup.

Speaking to reporters after practice Wednesday, Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside said that he would be ready for a matchup against Joel Embiid if it were to happen this series. "He wants to play in front of the fans, and he wants to see this through", Brown said, via ESPN.com.

"You need Joel Embiid", Sixers coach Brett Brown said Monday after the loss.

All of a sudden, Miami faces less pressure heading home since they were able to steal at least one of the first two games in Philadelphia. "It's born out of competitiveness, it's born out of him wanting to be with his team".

He remains doubtful for Game 3 tonight and is very unlikely the Sixers will clear him for action unless they are 100 percent sure his health isn't at risk. He added that he doesn't think it'll be long before the Sixers know, "but we will learn more over the next 48 hours, I suspect".

Whenever Embiid returns, he is likely to wear a protective mask after doing so during recent shootarounds.

Since missing the first two seasons of his career with foot injuries, Embiid has been protected by the 76ers.

Without Embiid, the advantages of having Ben Simmons as the focal offensive player were on full display in Game 1 when the Sixers scored 130 points and won by 27.

Heading into the playoffs, the Philadelphia 76ers were viewed as one of those teams that nobody wanted to play when seeing how they closed out the regular season by winning each of their final 16 games. "I just want the green light to play".

Wednesday will be the three-week mark, and it's unclear if Embiid is any closer to returning.

76ers forward Robert Covington said: "Overall, everybody is happy he's back". Although Wade only delivered 11 points in Game 1, his 28 point contribution in Game 2 lead the Heat to their first win of the postseason series.
