Thank God I don't bet, and other observations from Game 2

Leave it to Dario Saric to drop some playoff truth bombs. "It's not always supposed to be that", Wade told ESPN after the game.

The Sixers can not afford to trail the series 2-1 after Thursday night, especially with the Heat threatening to sweep the home series putting the Sixers on the brink of a first round exit when they return home next Tuesday.

Welcome to the daily Full Court Press playoff edition, where we recap all of the day's National Basketball Association action. There is just something about watching Wade take those young whippersnappers to school in the year 2018.

Monday marked Philadelphia's first loss since Embiid suffered the injury on March 28.

The Sixers coach Brett Brown, for his part, was sympathetic to Embiid's situation when asked about Embiid's post. "I can't wait for Joel to come back and help us because we're a better team with him". "It's only his second year".

Belinelli and Ilyasova and their perimeter shooting are big part of the Sixers' game. By the end of the game, Wade had a purely sexual stat line that made his knees, and yours, feel like it was 2006 again: 28 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two huge brass balls.


Whenever Embiid returns, the 76ers will receive a boost, but in the meantime they're more than capable of stealing back home court.

"If it was my decision, I would play, but I can't get back out on the court if I don't have the OK from them", said Embiid, who averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 63 games in the regular season. "We won 17 in a row, we lost one game. We're a good home for them". Fultz, who played just less than five minutes off the bench in favor of guard T.J. McConnell, was not surprised by what the Heat brought in Game 2.

He scored 17 points, dished out 14 assists, and had nine rebounds. Joel Embiid changes the dynamics in many ways. There remains no definitive timetable for Embiid's return, though Brown said Tuesday that it is not "that far away". "Of course we're missing him". His presence was infectious; the team played better with him on the floor. One way he managed this: By playing fast, in transition, and making use of the incredible shooting talent around him, which distracts the defense just enough to allow him to make his own move to the basket at times.

After getting their asses handed to them by the 76ers in Saturday's 130-103 Game 1 loss, the Heat entered Monday's Game 2 needing a hero.

"They tried to go over screens all the time and tried to breath on our necks", he said. There's the fact that it was a playoff game, but Wade's played in 173 so it's not like he'll be any more jazzed up for one over another anymore - particularly a first-round matchup.

Saric is a scrappy player, who thrives in physical situations.
