NBA Playoff: Heat leave Embiid and 76ers one loss away from elimination

On Tuesday night, the Miami Heat managed to break the tie in the Eastern Conference semifinal series, after crushing the Philadelphia 76ers 120-85, in a game they dominated from start to finish.

In the first quarter alone, Erik Spoelstra‘s team was able to score 31 points and make a difference of 12 against the visitors, who during the second and third periods managed to improve their points, although it was not enough to give a better performance at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.

Butler drove the victory

Within this game Jimmy Butler was the best inside the court for Miami, after scoring 23 points and having 60% of effectiveness from the field shots, although it is worth mentioning that the entire team had an outstanding performance.

Max Strus scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to be the only one to achieve a double-double for the Heat, and he also made four three-pointers out of the ten he attempted.

Meanwhile, Gabe Vincent, Victor Oladipo and Bam Adebayo scored 15, 13 and 12 points respectively. In fact, each of those who played this game for Miami made at least one basket.

Joel Embiid’s nightmare

Meanwhile, for Doc Rivers‘ team, Joel Embiid contributed the most for the 76ers, after scoring 17 points and grabbing five rebounds, at the moment the lowest number he has achieved throughout the 2022 Playoffs.

Likewise, Philadelphia fans must be angry with the performance that James Harden has had throughout this series, since he has not been as effective in three-pointers as he is known to be. In this game he only made two of six, which helped him finish with 14 units in the 37 minutes he played. Although the good news for him is that he continues to gain ground in the all-time list of steals in the NBA.

On the other hand, Tobias Harris added 12 for this game, which surely is a blow for Philadelphia, which has not reached the Conference Finals since 2001, when they beat the Bucks.
