PHI: Grow Don’t Fade

In their last matchup against the Indiana Pacers, the Sixers were unable to capitalize and failed to clinch the first seed in their loss. A big factor was their inability to keep the pace in the second half.

Despite winning the first half 62 to 51, they lost the second half 32 to 52. The Sixers’ offence was dreadful in the second half, shooting just 29.5% from the field and 14.3% from the three-point range.

The Heat won’t let Philadelphia get comfortable from the tip. With or without Joel Embiid, the Sixers need to play to their strengths – get out and run and find open shooters.

Sixers Key Player: (G) Ben Simmons

All things in the Sixers offence run through Ben Simmons. In the Sixers’ recent loss to the Pacers, Simmons was the lone bright spot.

The Australian international posted 20 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists. He did struggle with his ball control though, committing five turnovers in the loss.

Simmons will be crucial if Philly wants to beat the Heat. If he can get to the rim and find shooters for opportunities, the Sixers have a great chance.

Editor’s Picks

MIA: Protect the Paint

The Miami Heat know that their offence can go through high’s and low’s. But one that thing that has been constant for them this season has been their defence.

Erik Spoelstra’s team knows how to lock down the paint. They are ranked first overall in two-point field goals allowed and attempts allowed.

Both Jimmy Butler is unlikely to play in this matchup, but the Heat have plenty of weapons on their side. The question is who will step up their production – most eyes will be on second-year guard Tyler Herro.

Heat Key Player: (G) Tyler Herro

Last year’s playoff darling, Tyler Herro will need to increase his production when the Heat face off against the Sixers.

Herro is a talented guard with all-around offensive talent. In his last game he posted 24 points, 11 rebounds, and three assists on 10 of 15 shooting from the field.

The second-year guard for the Heat is well known for his threat on the offensive end. On top of taking on a greater scoring burden, Herro should improve on his playmaking. He can certainly do better than his 3:2 assist-to-turnover ratio.
