Joel Embiid 'wants green light to play' for Philadelphia 76ers

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

The Miami Heat leveled their first round series to 1-1 after an impressive 113-103 win over the 76ers on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Miami led at halftime but was outscored 74-43 in the second half.

Early on, the Sixers appeared to be in good shape.

"The second quarter definitely is where they punched us in the mouth and we didn't respond the right way", the rookie said post-game.

Time and again, Belinelli would find a sliver of space and fire his trademark off-balanced jumper through the hoop. It's a chess game the Heat will have to play and that's what Smith was talking about when making this comparison.

After scoring 21 points on 8 of 9 shooting to rally the Heat from a nine-point deficit in the first half, Wade took the game over the fourth quarter after Philadelphia, winners of 17 in a row coming in, had trimmed the Heat's 16-point lead to 98-96 with 4:34 to play. Saric broke up a pass on defense that led to a Simmons dunk and suddenly 18 straight wins was within reach.


In a flash, Wade stripped a ball and scored on a dunk, found a wide open James Johnson for another slam and fed Goran Dragic for an open jumpshot.

76ers: Philly native and Hollywood star Kevin Hart rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell and sat courtside a few seats down from Allen Iverson. I have a feeling that his role may stay limited until Joel Embiid returns. "I felt tonight it was a really strong example of how you wished you had him", Brown told reporters.

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. "He, to me, is the difference maker. There will be a reintroduction of him back into the team". Greer died Saturday after a brief illness.

Philadelphia, which made 18 of its 28 three-point attempts in Game 1, finished 7 of 35 from beyond the arc and shot 42.1 percent for the game.

"He was a graceful man".
