Fans come out full force to cheer on 76ers in game 5 against Miami Heat
The young Sixers were the slight favorites to eliminate the Heat in the opening round of the playoffs, but only a few expected to see them doing that in five games.
"We feel like we're unstoppable and we can get whatever we want to", Embiid said.
Rubin had organized prison trips with Embiid, Simmons and Markelle Fultz to support Mill, and the rapper's songs played in the locker room and during warmups. He saw his playing time limited down the stretch, and the Heat were much worse with him on the floor this season. "Each day that he's been back, I've just been trying to enjoy it".
But 50 wins? A record-setting, season-ending 16-game win streak?
Also clear, though, is this: If a fourth title banner is coming to Miami anytime soon, some changes are going to be needed.
Horford had 22 points and 14 rebounds, Smart made an impact in his first game since mid-March and the Celtics took a 3-2 lead. We already talked about Philadelphia's chances to win the conference, but they are also regarded as the fifth team to win the NBA Championship at +1000, so maybe their time is now and not the future.
Aldridge had 30 points and 12 rebounds, and Patty Mills added 18 points with four 3-pointers for cold-shooting San Antonio.
Wade was traded to Miami from Cleveland before the deadline in February.
G Tyler Johnson, whose salary soars from $6 million this season to $19 million next season, likely needs surgery to fix his left thumb.
While the final game was as chippy as all of the other ones in the series, this game was about Philadelphia taking the next step. "He wanted to utilize more spacing I guess in the playoffs, so that's why he did it". Plus, it's unclear if G Dion Waiters (ankle surgery) will be ready for camp after getting shut down midway through this season. He spent the previous 13 seasons with the Heat. Problem is, how can they pay him?
He was the victim of physical play including being undercut by Josh Richardson and struck by Goran Dragic but refused to be baited.
There weren't too many people, if any at all, who envisioned the Sixers reaching those lofty heights, but they got there nonetheless. 76ers roll with Meek Mill past Heat in Game 5AP Photo PACS116, PACS101, PACS108, PACS102, PACS103, PACS105, PACS107, PACS104, PACS118, PACS117, PACS115Eds: 76ers 104, Heat 91. But the Heat offense could apparently use a boost.
Whiteside's season ended just 3:45 into the third quarter when he was replaced by Bam Adebayo and never returned, similar to Game 2 when he played 2:35 of the third quarter and sat the rest of the game.
