Embiid missed the first two games of Philadelphia's first-round National Basketball Association playoff series while recovering from an orbital fracture of his left eye.

The Sixers prevailed over the Heat with a 128-108 win in Game 3, which was marked by the return of Philly big man Joel Embiid. Olynyk leads in rebounds with 6.0 while Johnson tops in assists with 4.5. The Miami Heat have lost 13 of their last 16 road games.

Redick had 24 for the Sixers, while Embiid had 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Wade had a feeling that the 76ers rookie point guard would be special back when Simmons was a high schooler watching Wade and LeBron James, Simmons' mentor, work out.

These might include suffocating, foaming at the mouth, constricted pupils, convulsions and involuntary urination or defecation. Survivors reached by the Associated Press said they were overwhelmed by the smell of chlorine on the night of April 7.

The Miami Heat are doing what they've done all season long, and that's play well for three quarters and completely crap the bed in the other one.

This was the nail in the coffin of the Heat's season - if the Sixers turn the ball over 26 times, shoot 7-of-31 from three and still win on the road, the Heat are overmatched. The bottom line is the Philadelphia 76ers are the better team and can go on these insane runs that the Heat can't match for 48 minutes. From there, it set off a brief altercation between the two teams.

The Heat are aiming to take control of the series after a Game 2 victory in which Dwayne Wade exploded for 28 points in 11 of 16 shooting from the field and 6 of 8 from the free throw line. I don't want to lay this much chalk and probably wouldn't bet it, but the 76ers should cruise in this game come second half.
