Wade, Heat storm back, even series with 76ers with 113-103 win

Wade, Heat storm back, even series with 76ers with 113-103 win

Any 76ers player or fan would have been disappointed with Monday's 113-103 loss to Miami in Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs first round. The future Hall of Fame guard played 26 minutes off the bench, going for 28 points on 11-for-17 shooting and pitching in seven rebounds.

The first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs continues today with Game 2 in the Miami-Philadelphia and San Antonio-Golden State series. There's hope the 7-foot-2 center will return for Thursday's Game 3 in Miami, but Brown declined to speculate on the possibility.

The defeat marks the Sixers' first loss since their March 13 defeat to the Indiana Pacers and despite previously going 9-0 without injured star center Joel Embiid, his absence was especially felt this game with the 24-year-old later expressing his frustration on Instagram, stating he was "f--g sick and exhausted of being babied". Covington, Saric, Redick and Marco Belinelli all rushed up ugly shots from long range when there was still time left for better looks.

The Heat controlled much of the contest, before the Sixers made a run in the fourth quarter.

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

Officials whistled 30 fouls in the first half as Miami took advatage of the typically speedy Sixers and held them to 42 points, almost 15 lower than their regular season average. After scoring his 17th point, Wade moved past Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird for sole possession of 10th place on the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list with 3,899 points.

But a Wade dunk in transition pushed the Heat up 100-96, with Wade then assisting James Johnson for a basket that put the Heat up 102-96 and Dragic following up a Heat defensive stop with a short jumper to give the Heat as 104-96 lead.

Dragic, who was 4 of 14 shooting for 15 points in Game 1, had a more efficient night with 20 points on 8 of 14shooting. On the 76ers' next possession, Simmons finished a fastbreak with a dunk, and the Heat's lead was sliced to 93-87.

"I think Dwyane's steal changed the game", Brown said.

76ers: Philly native and Hollywood star Kevin Hart rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell and sat courtside a few seats down from Allen Iverson. Johnson will head back to a reserve role.

"He does so many different things for his team". "There will be a reintroduction of him back into the team".

Wade certainly took that advice and ran with it, going 11 of 16 from the field for his 28 points.

"That's kind of who we are", Brown said.
