NBA Playoff Series Preview: 76ers vs Heat

Sidney Guerrero | 16 April, 2018, 04:15

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid was ruled out for the Sixers' playoff opener against the Miami Heat on Saturday.

Embiid has been sidelined since fracturing the orbital bone near his left eye and suffering a concussion against the New York Knicks on March 28.

Coach Brett Brown shrugged when asked if Embiid's return, or lack thereof is linked to the success the Sixers have had without them.

Amir Johnson should get the start for Embiid. The Sixers led by as many as 29 points before it was over after trailing by as many as 12 points in the first half.

If Whiteside can shut down the paint and Miami's wing defense can extinguish any hot three-point shooting during Game 1, Miami will have a good chance of upsetting Philadelphia in their first playoff showdown since 2012. Heat Game 1 on Saturday, Robert Covington caught a pass, pump-faked, side-stepped, then shot a three. Belinelli had 25 and Ilyasova 17. He will wear a protective mask when he returns to the court. "It gets foggy and all that", Embiid said. Will he be enough to carry the Sixers to a playoff victory?

In Embiid, the Sixers have a big-game player that who excels on the national stage. Olynyk led the Heat with 26 points.

Overall, Philadelphia is riding a 16-game winning streak into the playoffs. Whiteside averaged 19.0 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game against the 76ers this season (excluding the February 2 game where he left early with a stomach virus). Simmons made a statue out of Olynyk, crossing him up and busting through for a two-handed slam that brought down the house. Coach Eric Spoelstra has led Miami to two National Basketball Association championships.
