Sixers coach Brett Brown says Joel Embiid's status for Game 3 undetermined

Dwyane Wade, who struck for 28 points in a little less than 26 minutes to lead the Heat win, said intensity had a lot to do with Miami's improvement in Game 2.

Embiid practiced Wednesday in Miami and was back on the floor Thursday for the team's game-day shootaround. Miami's veterans, most notably, Dwayne Wade came back strong in game 2 to snap the 76ers long win streak.

And Joel Embiid isn't happy about it. Game 3 will tip off at 9:00 a.m. AEDT Friday in Miami.

Just as Reggie Miller once drew motivation from Spike Lee when the Pacers would face the Knicks, Wade took the actor's smack talk and turned it into fuel. He averaged 10 points a game during the regular season and 13 over the last 10 games.

What happened Monday night was the best thing that could have occurred to a young team that's dabbing its big toe into the playoff pool for the first time.

That being said, if Ilyasova is on the court then Hassan Whiteside will be on the bench.




In short, it looked like the 76ers could have used a dominant presence inside. In Game 2, the Sixers had a 17-6 edge in fast-break points. It won't get any easier for the 76ers on the road. "And when he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated, and we respect his frustration".

But in practice, Embiid didn't get cleared for full contact Tuesday.

Dwayne Wade's vintage performance was enough to help the Heat steal game 2, but the Heat can't rely on him to play like that every game. On the 76ers' next possession, Simmons finished a fastbreak with a dunk, and the Heat's lead was sliced to 93-87. Six offensive rebounds is an impressive stat by itself, but what does not show up on the score card is Ilyasova's hustle on almost every rebounding battle with the Heat's interior players.

Philadelphia might have a young roster, but they also have very talented players. In two playoff games, he's shooting 75 percent.

Game 3 is Thursday as the series shifts to San Antonio. The Sixers made a team playoff-record 18 3s in Game 1 and missed a whopping 16 of 18 3s in the first half.
