For the first time in 17 games - and for just the second time at home this calendar year someone beat the Sixers.

Earlier Dwyane Wade scored a season-high 28 points and the Miami Heat levelled up their Eastern Conference playoff series by beating the Philadelphia 76ers 113-103.

We might be hearing about the final play of tonight's game from now until Game 3.

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid said he was "sick and exhausted of being babied" after sitting out a playoff loss to the Miami Heat.

Simmons flirted with another triple-double with 24 points, eight assists and eight rebounds.

"They took it to us first half", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

The #3 seed Sixers and #6 seed Heat squared off for game two Monday at the Wells Fargo Center.

"I saw moments", Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.


The 76ers took the opposite approach to the start of the third quarter than they did in Game 1, when they this time opened the second half with Amir Johnson on the court and Ilyasova on the bench.

In the fourth, a Saric three cut the Miami lead to eight with just under nine minutes to play. Brown should have told the Sixers that in the second quarter when Miami began to exert their defensive dominance.

Dwyane Wade put in a vintage performance to help the Miami Heat peg the series back to 1-1. The Sixers have posted a 9-1 record in the 10 games he's missed.

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

Joel Embiid is clamoring to get in this series. Greer died Saturday after a brief illness. He was 81. He's the 76ers' career leader in points, field goals, field goals attempted, games and minutes played.

"He was a graceful man".

"And that's a partnership with Joel and the medical people, it's a collaborative thing with the bottomline being what's best for his health", Brown said.

In three games against the Heat this season, Embiid (7-0, 250) has averaged 19 points, 8.6 rebounds, 3.7 assists and one block.

Another player to keep an eye on is point guard Goran Dragi?, because he is one of the most impactful players on the Miami Heat right now.
