On Tuesday February 27, the Philadelphia 76ers arrives at the American Airlines Arena to face their host the Miami Heat. Entering the game the 76ers are looking to return to the win column after losing to the Wizards which ended their seven game win streak.
Miami fall on the opposite side of the equation having won against Memphis in their last outing. Prior to this victory though the Heat had just one win in their past nine games.
Last season the teams split the season series though the Sixers have taken the first two matches this season.
The Heat holds the all-time record having bested the 76ers in 58 of their 115 matches.
Joel Embiid continues to impress with more minutes and playing in back to back games finally. He leads the squad in scoring (23.9) and blocks (1.9). Rookie Ben Simmons is leading the 76ers in several key categories such as rebounds (7.7), assists (7.4) and steals (1.8).
This pair has combined to become the one – two punch of the 76ers and is eager to take the squad into the postseason.
Demetrius Jackson (adductor strain) has missed the last three games. Justin Anderson (high-ankle sprain) has been out since February 14. Both are expected to miss the game versus Miami.
Furkan Korkmaz (foot) is expected to remain out until March. Markelle Fultz remains out dealing with the shoulder issue which has negated his rookie campaign.
December and early January the Heat were rolling with their sights set on a home court seed then suddenly the team hit a stretch of losses.
No squad in the Association is in more games within the last five minutes so the key for opponents is not letting them pull close within the final five minutes.
The youngsters are the main reason why the Heat don’t quit with Tyler Johnson, Josh Richardson and Justise Winslow all providing significant contributions.
Kelly Olynyk (shoulder strain) is questionable for game against the 76ers.

Watch for the matchup between Joel Embiid and Hassan Whiteside. Another exciting defensive pairing will be if rookie Bam Adebayo also gets some time guarding Embiid.
