Embiid: 'Sick and exhausted of being babied'

17 April 2018

Wade's 28-point performance on Monday night was predictable, but he was aided by a flawless storm of missed Sixers' shots and untimely turnovers as the Heat evened the series, 1-1, with a 113-103 victory on Monday.

The 76ers were probably not big fans of Goran Dragic running up the score with a fast-break layup while holding an eight-point lead at the end of Game 2.

With a commanding 56-42 advantage at half-time, the heat closed out the encounter with professionalism and ruthlessness in the second period.

"If it was my decision, I would play, but I can't get back out on the court if I don't have the OK from them", said Embiid.

Heat veteran Dwyane Wade came off the bench, steadied his squad and hit clutch baskets.

The Sixers are the favorites to win the series.

"If you can steal a game and then go back home and hold serve", Brown said going in, "you've done what should have been done". Johnson made all seven of his shots.

Russia: Syria chemical attack 'fabrication' by foreign power
Russia's foreign ministry said on Saturday that Western strikes on Syria came as the country had "a chance of a peaceful future ". It was unclear what the approach might mean for Russian and Iranian forces in Syria .

The Sixers lost for the first time since March 13 to Indiana. Wade may not have a lot left in the tank, but every once in a while he reminds everybody why he's a future Hall of Famer.

Let's rewind to the first half.

And there were some tough buckets. Wade set the tone early, going for 21 first half points and only missing one shot. There's the fact that it was a playoff game, but Wade's played in 173 so it's not like he'll be any more jazzed up for one over another anymore - particularly a first-round matchup. Looking back in the past two years, the Sixers never had a consistent roster.

Golden State made 15 of 31 attempts from three-point range, contrasting sharply with San Antonio, who could only muster four from 28 attempts. When Wade was in the offense is much simpler, but when he's hitting his midrange shots - he was 7-of-9 between the paint and the arc - he's nearly impossible to stop.

Philly missed some open 3-pointers, but Miami's physical defense deserves credit for disrupting shooters.

"They were bending us backwards".

Publicly, Embiid has worn various protective masks during shootaround - which he'll likely have to wear when/if he returns to game action as a preventative measure - and even labeled himself the "Phantom of the Process".

Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Raises Q2 Guidance As Subscriber Numbers Beat Street Estimates
Netflix added about 8.3 million net new subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2017 after it predicted it would add 6.3 million. Netflix, Inc . (NASDAQ: NFLX ) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 112.77. (NASDAQ: NFLX ) for 100,146 shares.

They've also been winning without one of their best players, Joel Embiid, who's been out with an injury for almost a month.

Doesn't get much clearer than that.

However, it was the second quarter that proved to be the most decisive in the match.

Saric found Simmons with a long pass for the 76ers.

Ben Simmons had 17 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds in his playoff debut, and the Sixers rolled to a 130-103 victory on Saturday night for their 17th straight win.

Embiid is obviously also a major factor on the other end. Trailing by 16 with less than a minute to go in the third quarter, an Ersan Ilyasova tip in cut an insurmountable lead to just two points at the four-inute mark. Again, there was no timetable on when Embiid would return this series, if at all.

The difference between Game 1 and 2 was most noticeable in the Sixers 3-point shooting. Whiteside, who only played 12 minutes, was left behind by players cutting inside or spreading the court.
