Miami Heat look to even playoff series

Sixers grab 1-0 series lead over Heat in first playoff win in six years

Sixers vs. Heat Game 2: Why it will be a shootout

If my assumption is correct, that means Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra will make necessary adjustments to combat the Sixer's firepower.

Olynyk had 26 points, seven rebounds and two assists for the visiting Heat in a 130-103 loss on Saturday.

But the hosts were then obliterated in the second period as the Heat went on a scoring spree, with Wade amassing 21 first half points.

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.

Wade's experience proved crucial throughout, inspiring a first-half fightback to wipe out the 76ers' early lead before shepherding Miami to the win in a nervy finale.

Embiid, as he is wont to do, took to social media in response to the outcome of the game. I have a feeling that his role may stay limited until Joel Embiid returns.

Embiid has been on the sidelines since March 28 after suffering a concussion and a fractured orbital bone following a collision with teammate Markelle Fultz during their win over the New York Knicks. "I wish more than anything that I was out there". But instead of the lighthearted posts we've come to expect out of him, Embiid was furious on his Instagram Story. "I just want the green light to play". And when he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated.

Brown added before Game 2 that Embiid might participate in on-court work with coaching staff or players who are not in the regular rotation to build up his conditioning. Josh Richardson chipped in 14 points.

While it was a frustrating night for the Sixers, who hit just 7-of-36 shots from the three-point line, Simmons is optimistic his squad will learn quickly ahead of Game 3.
