Heat end Sixers' streak to tie series at 1-1

Embiid wants'green light to play for 76ers

Dwyane Wade passed Larry Bird on the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list on Monday night, jumping to the 10th spot on the list.

It was a superb performance from Wade, a three-time National Basketball Association champion who started this season with the Cleveland Cavaliers before re-joining Miami in February just before the trade deadline. However, a dominant second half display from the Heat along with a vintage performance from Dwyane Wade who scored 28 points, three assists and seven rebounds ended that run as the series now heads to Miami for the next two games.

"I just came in with an aggressive approach", Wade said afterwards. I play the game for these moments.

After trailing by as many as 16 points in the third quarter the Sixers got back to within two points, but according to Ben Simmons, they needed to get back into the game much earlier.

"You're talking about a superstar, of course we are missing him [Embiid] here", Sixers forward Dario Saric said, adding that when he comes back, everyone feels like "he will kick their [Heat] a-s".

Embiid could, however, feature in Game 3 which takes place on Thursday.

Philadelphia, which owns a 1-0 series lead, went up 29-22 after one quarter. Miami held Philly to just 13 points in the period, with the Sixers offence going ice cold.

The Sixers trailed the Heat at halftime, 60-56, but outscored the Heat by 31 in the game's second half.

The Miami Heat look to rebound in their playoff series Monday night.

Wade however had other ideas, grabbing a two-pointer before finding Johnson with a superb pass to make it 102-96.

Whiteside was terrible in Game 1 on Saturday night, scoring two points on 1-for-4 shooting with two turnovers in 12 minutes.

Sixers coach Brett Brown later was forced to respond to an expletive-laced social media from injured star Joel Embiid, who wrote of his frustration at being "babied" after watching the loss from the sidelines. He wants to play in front of the fans.
