76ers star listed as doubtful for Game 3 against Heat

Sixers' Game 1 win was blast but let's not get carried away

The Sixers Game 1 win was just about as impressive as it can get but let's not get carried away it was just one game By Matt HaughtonMore

Embiid did participate in what Brett Brown is calling "light practicing" with a "little bit of contact on Tuesday in Camden and again in Miami, according to Philly.com's Sarah Todd".

So what can the Sixers do to counter the physical play of the Heat? The Miami Heat stole home court advantage with a 113-103 win in game 2. With the people that did the operation, the doctors, with our medical staff, with the team, with me, the coaching staff.

Yet in Game 1, the Sixers were much more effective in half-court sets because Ben Simmons was finding players cutting to the basket, getting open at will against the Heat defenders. The two veterans have proven that while they may not be consistent enough to start critical games for the Sixers, they can surely provide the spark needed to beat an opponent like Miami.

Privately, he's not. Well, it's public now.Embiid posted a blank photo on Instagram during Brown's press conference that read "F-ing sick and exhausted of being babied."How has Sixers' Markelle Fultz remained positive amidst chaos?The message was relayed to Brown.The Sixers coach didn't mind it."He just wants to play basketball". "Flash" showed flashes of his former self in Game 2 against the Philadelphia 76ers as he scored 28 points to lead the team to victory.

But the Heat won't duplicate what they did Monday night.

But there was life left in the fourth.

"We played Game 1 like a regular-season game and tonight was a playoff game", Wade said. Additionally, Goran Dragic posted 20 points, while James Johnson added 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

"I hate this feeling but maybe it's a good reminder for everybody for next game to lock in", Simmons said.

Kevin Hart has unlocked vintage Dwyane Wade. "To be able to hush a crowd, that's a great feeling", Wade said.

Embiid, who was an All-Star for the first time this season, is averaging 22.9 points, 11 rebounds and 1.8 blocks. He was 81. He's the 76ers' career leader in points, field goals, field goals attempted, games and minutes played.

Brown said Embiid has looked solid in the workouts.
