Olynyk helps Heat to Game 2 victory over 76ers

Super Simmons in 76ers NBA playoff win

The third-seed Philadelphia 76ers rolled all over the seventh-seed Miami Heat on Saturday night in Game 1 of their first round playoff series, winning in a convincing 130-103 fashion.

Embiid has been sidelined since March 28 after suffering a broken orbital bone and concussion in a collision with teammate Markelle Fultz. Though the team announced Embiid has cleared concussion protocol prior to Game 2, the second-year superstar was still prevented from making his long-awaited playoff debut. That means Philadelphia will be shorthanded, but it may be an advantage for them. Josh Richardson chipped in 14 points. It wasn't, however, because he was in foul trouble (only one personal foul on the night).

The Sixers had won 17 consecutive games before losing to Miami in Game 2 at home.

For the 76ers, Ben Simmons' 24 points, eight rebounds and eight assists were in vain. With four terrific shooters surrounding on the court with Simmons, it essentially neutralized the rim-protecting Whiteside, making him almost un-playable. Sixers coach Brett Brown even went as far is to say the team could have used him. "I felt tonight it was a really strong example of how you wished you had him", Brown told reporters.

He added: "I must have walked under a ladder or broken a mirror somewhere because I have not had any luck whatsoever". The hosts are seven points clear of the relegation zone, with Stoke five points adrift of safety with four games left.

"We are going to try to give a little bit more space", Spoelstra said, "and give him some more opportunities to attack". He was a matchup problem as Philly spaced the floor and neutralized Miami's big man, Hassan Whiteside, who played just 12 minutes, 26 seconds.

Internally, there is optimism that Embiid will return when the series is in Miami, though it's unclear if that will be for Game 3 on Thursday, according to sources. Philadelphia lost Monday for the first time in Embiid's 10-game absence. And when he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated.
