Match Predict – Handicap (-6.5) for Heat

It is unlikely to change much in this encounter. Without Embiid, the visitors have little chance. As the previous game showed, the Sixers have absolutely no idea how to open up the Heat’s defence. Nothing much will likely change tonight.

Total Points – Under 210

The Miami Heat’s defensive play is excellent. Erik Spoelstra’s men do this particularly well at home. In 3 of their last 5 games in Florida, for example, they haven’t allowed their opponents to score more than 94 points.

Home Side Points – Over 107.5

The Heat have scored more than 107.5 points in 3 of their last 5 games.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Miami Heat vs Philadelphia 76ers

Miami Heat:

The Miami Heat took advantage of the Philadelphia 76ers’ problems to win the first game of the series. Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo destroyed the defence of the visitors from Pennsylvania. Together, these players scored 49 points,13 rebounds and 11 assists. This helped the Heat to get a (106-92) victory.

It should be noted that Kyle Lowry did not play in the previous game. However, the absence of this player had no impact on the Heat’s performance. Without Lowry, Spoelstra’s men will have to play well in their second game.

In the first game of the series, Tyler Herro scored 25 points, 1 rebound and 7 assists.

Philadelphia 76ers:

The Philadelphia 76ers were without Joel Embiid for the first game of the series against the Miami Heat. The Cameroonian suffered a concussion. Doc Rivers says he’s feeling much better. However, we won’t see him on the court in this game. He’s a too important player for the Sixers. No one will risk his health.

It is worth noting that Embiid’s absence had an impact on the 76ers’ performance in the previous game. The Pennsylvania players did not know how to get past Miami’s defensive line.

In the first game of the series, Tobias Harris scored 27 points, 6 rebounds and 1 assist.

Safe Bets
