The Sixers could only win this game 6 on their court, Joel Embiid did his part (20 points, 12 rebounds) despite all the injuries he brings with him, but the Heat is too strong tonight and they are superior from start to finish. end, especially in the second half.
After 3 ‘of play Danny Green was injured in a clash with Embiid, who bounced off his knee. A bad injury that sends him to the infirmary not to return. Jimmy Butler and Max Strus drive Miami, Harden is impalpable but Maxey has some arrows in the bow (48-49 after 24 ‘).
Upon returning, the defense of Miami rises in tone, which concedes little in a quarter from the partial 15-25 that tip the scales decisively in favor of the guests. Butler scores 14 points, the Sixers get confused and are even booed by their audience. The last quarter does not change the fate of the series.
Philadelphia – Miami 90-99 (2-4). Boxscore: 20 Maxey, 15 Milton, 14 Harris, 11 Harden for the Sixers; 32 Butler, 20p + 11r Strus, 12 Tucker, 10 Adebayo and Herro for the Heat. Holidays for Philadelphia, conference final for Miami (against Milwaukee or Boston).
