NBA Playoff roundup: Raptors snap Game 1 hex, defeat Wizards

Simmons

The 76ers and Heat are playing Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.

Ben Simmons has starred in helping the Philadelphia 76ers to a win over the Miami Heat in the first day of the playoffs. Marco Belinelli, who had averaged 18.8 points over his last five games, scored 25.

UN Security Council Rejects Resolution Condemning US-Led Airstrikes in Syria
The Pentagon on Saturday said the strikes set the country's chemical weapons capability back "for years". President Donald Trump announced the military action from the White House late on Friday.

Warriors 113, Spurs 92: Kevin Durant helped the defending champions get defensive in a hurry, finishing with 24 points, eight rebounds and seven assists as the Golden State Warriors returned to their old dominant selves at playoff time to beat the cold-shooting San Antonio Spurs. And, by their entire body of work, the 76ers shouldn't be laying this many points to the Heat.

The teams will compete in Game 2 in Philadelphia before the series moves to South Beach. Olynyk and James Johnson, who closed with 13 points, three rebounds and four assists, were leading the charge.

He would famously start out his broadcasts, "From the kingdom of Nye", an ode to Nye County, where Pahrump is located. Bell is an inductee of both the Nevada Broadcaster's Association Hall of Fame and National Radio Hall of Fame.

Embiid was a spectator in Game 1 of the first-round series because of a broken orbital bone around his left eye.

Despite starting the game 3 of 11 shooting and falling behind 19-12, the Heat handled the energy in the building well and responded with a 23-5 run to take an impressive 12-point lead in the first quarter.

Down 60-56, the Sixers turned it on in the third period, outscoring Miami 34-18. The All-Star center has been hopeful he can return early in the series. Games in the National Basketball Association playoffs are more physical, more intense and more meaningful than contests throughout the regular season, and Philadelphia is aiming to show it belongs on this stage against Miami. Wearing a mask similar to the one worn in Phantom of the Opera, Embiid rang a miniature version of the Liberty Bell before the Sixers players were introduced and the fireworks began.
