On Thursday March 8 the Philadelphia 76ers arrive at the American Airlines Arena to face their host the Miami Heat. In their last game the 76ers easily handled the Charlotte Hornets. The Miami Heat pushed the Washington Wizards into overtime, losing a heartbreaker.
Last season the teams split the season series and this season the Sixers hold a 2-1 edge in games.
The Heat hold the all-time record having bested the 76ers in 59 of their 116 matches.
The constant shift of the teams battling for seeds in the playoff race finds the Sixers seeded sixth with their eyes firmly set on passing the Washington Wizards and Indiana Pacers in an effort to claim a home court seed.
Meanwhile today’s opponent is clinging to the eighth seed with the same hopes of moving up.
Furkan Korkmaz (foot) has missed significant time with the lisfranc injury and remains out with no timetable for return.
Likewise, rookie Markelle Fultz remains out continuing to heal from the shoulder injury while relearning his shot.
Although the Heat have a healthy four and a half game cushion over ninth seeded Detroit the squad would prefer to rise higher up the playoff ladder.
Games like this one against teams likewise muddled in the three through eight seeds are therefore extremely important to win.
Also of note, the Sixer currently hold a two to one game win advantage, so Miami need to win this game in order to keep their tiebreak hopes versus the Sixers alive.
Wayne Ellington hasn’t played in four games due to a left quadriceps contusion. Ellington’s presence in this game is questionable.
Dion Waiters is lost for the season following season-ending ankle surgery and a pre-existing navicular bone fracture.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Both squads will be dialed in to capture the victory with playoff seeding on the line. In previous meetings the frontcourt was an especially interesting battle with Sixers star Joel Embiid the Heat’s focus.
Rookie Bam Adebayo is starting to offer reasons to believe General Manager Pat Riley may go Hassan Whiteside trade shopping this offseason. For now the Heat big men pair will need to handle Embidd if they desire the victory.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat +1
Dwyane Wade is channeling old school Flash performances in the Heat’s recent run, but Miami need to win these inter conference matchups and will use the American Airlines crowd as their sixth man.
