The 76ers are looking to close the series in this one. It would be great if they do as it will give them a chance to rest Embiid while the rest of the Eastern Conference is still battling it out. It wouldn’t be a sweep but still impressive.
It is do or die for the Heat…obviously. They really blew it in game four at home but since they won once at Philly in the series they might have some confidence heading into this one.
Game four was one they had to have and they blew it. I am not sure you can look at it any other way if you are a Heat fan.
In losing the game the Heat squandered the first decent game by Hassan Whiteside in the series – 13 points and 13 rebounds – as well as another turn back the clock performance from Dwyane Wade – team high 25 points.
I have never understood the fuss about Tyler Johnson. He scored zero points in game four despite starting the contest and has been below seasonal averages throughout the series. Miami’s depth is not proving to be much of an advantage.
With elimination pending I am not sure where the Heat can really go for game five. You have to think the likes of Johnson can play better but if that happens will they get what they have been getting from Wade.
Getting all of the key components going on the same night sounds like it could be on the coaches. It would also help if they had a more traditional point guard who was like a coach on the floor.
Philly is in a great spot up 3-1 in the series. Ben Simmons finally got that playoff triple double he had been chasing and all of their key rotation players contributed in the weekend victory over the Heat. Now they just have to close.
If there is any concern it is that their three point shooting got a little frost the last time out. Oddly Robert Covington was not bombing away and his he made 2 of 3. The rest of the team struggled from the arc but teams tend to shoot better from home.
This will be an interesting test for a mostly young group. They have definitely proven they are the better of the two teams and that what we saw during the regular season is repeatable. Now appears to be their time.

Free Miami Heat vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Returning home looks like a great opportunity for Philly. Still picking a team to win by 10 or more though is a little rich for my blood in the playoffs.
It is hard to see how Miami gets things turned around but they might cover.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Miami +9.5
My guess is this is the ceiling for this number. Philly wins but I like Miami to keep it reasonably close.
