NBA Playoffs Recap: Philadelphia vs. Miami Betting Odds

Kelly Olynyk led the team in scoring with 26 points on nine of 13 shooting off the bench, Goran Dragic added 15 points with four assists while James Johnson chipped in with 13 points and four assists.

The No. 3 seed Philadelphia 76ers cruised to a win over the No. 6 Miami Heat, 130-103, on Saturday, April 14, in the opening day of the 2018 NBA Playoffs.

Miami led at the half, 60-56. Dwayne Wade has seven points off the bench.

It was a fine display of the harmony and success that have enveloped this team over the past two months, and the Heat - after keeping things tiht in the first half - were helpless to find answers to the array of weapons Bryan Colangelo has assembled.

The 76ers' prolific offense was in rare form.


During the first quarter of Philly's clash with the Miami Heat, Covington received a pass from J.J. Redick, pump-faked and re-positioned himself for an open three. Marco Belinelli, who had averaged 18.8 points over his last five games, scored 25. Bellinelli and Ilyasova were vital midseason additions for Philadelphia. Olynyk really was the only Heat player to have a good scoring night and their defense fell to bits once the 76ers started raining the threes in the second half. Embiid is a first-team All-NBA candidate as well as Defensive Player of the Year candidate.

Embiid was able to shoot on the court for about 30 minutes prior to Saturday's game, reports ESPN.

"The white, clear mask is kind of harder, visibility-wise", Embiid said. Miami has come back to win eight of 19 previous playoff series in which has lost the first game.

The second game of the series is set for Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST.
