Philadelphia 76ers vs. Miami Heat: Preview


Game Info: 7:30 pm ET, airing on ESPN

Philadelphia 76ers (31-44) vs. Miami Heat (59-16)

 

The Sixers had a stellar game last night, scoring a season-high of 40 points in the first quarter against Atlanta. They cruised to a 101-90 victory, with Evan Turner leading the crew behind his 24 points and 11 rebounds. Tonight they’ll be in South Beach taking on a Heat team that will likely be without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Miami has been just fine without their superstars in these final games of the season. Last night Mike Miller tagged in 26 points, going 7-for-11 from beyond the arc. Chris Bosh is also still around, logging in 38 minutes last night while putting up decent numbers. The Heat carry a phenomenal home record of 32-4 this year, tonight they’ll battle it out against a Philadelphia team that’s hoping to end this disappointing season on a strong note.

Philly has been dominated by Miami during the regular season, losing their last 14 straight games against the Heat. The Sixers will pull for another great showing by Evan Turner, while also hoping Jrue Holiday finds his stroke after some miserable shooting numbers in the past two games.
