As can be seen, the teams begin a baseball set with the second game set for Wednesday, March 1st while each team enters having last played on Saturday.
Miami dropped their fourth straight with the shocking 103-108 loss to the Hornets while the 76ers battled the Celtics to the buzzer (quite literally) coming up just short in the 107-110 loss.
At this time, the Heat are 21-37-3 overall against the spread this season. Also, they are 13-18-1 ATS as the away team. Additionally, the 76ers are 35-24 against the spread this season. Also, they are 22-11 ATS as the home team
Monday, February 27th the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers will play the first of three scheduled matches this season starting with this home-and-home set that moves to Miami for March 1st while the final date is set for April 6th in Philly.
Overall, last season the clubs played four times with the teams splitting the four contests. The Heat holds the all-time record with 67 wins in 131 matches versus the 76ers.
It’s odd the teams have gone this long without facing each other especially because these clubs played each other in the second round of the playoffs with Miami prevailing 4-2.
*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing on Sunday, February 26th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Monday, February 27th.
Scoring is a problem for the Heat who are reeling. Instead of returning from the break and bringing their typical aggression to the court their lack of size and shooting is catching up to them.
While Jimmy Butler is a playoff beast, Miami needs to start winning some games or could be forced to have to win a play-in game(s) which isn’t ideal especially when the team struggles so mightily to score.
Presently, the Heat scores 108.1 points per game ranking 30th while shooting 45.0% from the field and 33.1% from the perimeter ranking 29th and 28th respectively.
Comparatively, on defense, the Heat allow opponents to score 108.6 points per game ranking second overall. Miami opponents shoot 47.6% from the field and 36.7% from the perimeter ranking 20th and 21st respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Tyler Herro PG (questionable—ribs)
- Kyle Lowry G (OUT indefinitely—knee soreness)
- Omer Yurtseven C (OUT indefinitely — ankle surgery)
- Nikola Jovic SF (OUT indefinitely, — lower back, stress reaction)
Joel Embiid did everything to help his team collect a win against the best team in the NBA including a 70′ heave that would’ve tied the game but the review confirmed the ball was still on his fingertips as the backboard lit up signaling game end.
Philly’s big man registered a double-double of 41 points and 12 rebounds. that included several clutch time scores, free throws, an important block plus that crazy full-court shot that was just a smidge too late.
So far this season, the 76ers score an average of 114.2 points per game ranking 16th. Philly shoots 48.1% from the field and 38.3% from the perimeter, ranking 10th and fourth respectively.
What’s more, defense is where the 76ers make their mark allowing the third-fewest opponent points per game with 110.4 and the third-best perimeter defense at 34.4% while ranking 13th for opponent field goal percentage allowing opponents to shoot 47.1%.
To summarize the injury report…
- Dewayne Dedmon, C (OUT indefinitely—hip)

Free Miami Heat vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
As much as the past tends to dictate how I view the Heat, their recent regression and inability to score has me questioning if they’ve taken a bigger step back than first indicated.
Conversely, the 76ers who’ve been the polar opposite as a team who tend to choke in the big games have been stepping up (Celtics game aside) with their star leading the way.
Yet, I’m more invested in my belief in the Sixers, but I’ll still take the points given the healthy margin — because hey – Miami needs to at the very least keep this game close.
