Youth Logan Paulsen Jersey
#1
Joel Embiid had trouble with his new mask.
It didn’t slow him down.
Embiid’s playoff debut was a smashing success for Philadelphia. The All-Star center returned from a 10-game absence by scoring 23 points Authentic Customized Packers Jerseys , including a personal 7-0 run down the stretch that iced matters, and the 76ers reclaimed control of their Eastern Conference first-round series by topping the Miami Heat 128-108 on Thursday night.
The 76ers outscored the Heat 32-14 in the fourth quarter, and took a 2-1 lead in the series.
”I am just so proud of what he did,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said.
Rightly so, too. Embiid started the day doubtful, ended it dominant, and had plenty of help as well. Marco Belinelli and Dario Saric each scored 21 for Philadelphia, and Ben Simmons finished with 19 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists.
”It was annoying Youth Orlando Brown Jr. Jersey ,” Embiid said of getting used to the mask. ”But that was the only way I could play in this game, if I wore the mask and protected my face with goggles. I had to work through it and I did.”
Thursday began with the 76ers saying Embiid wasn’t likely to play. His status was upgraded to probable in the afternoon and then he finally was inserted into the starting lineup – medical clearance coming from the team, mask clearance coming from the NBA after the league signed off on the dark, translucent, carbon-fiber, goggled apparatus that was made in consultation with independent experts.
The mask came off a couple times, the goggles were askew at times as well – Heat forward Justise Winslow even stomping on them once for good measure, a play that Brown chalked up to the intensity of playoff basketball – but in the end Embiid found a way.
”It’s definitely a different look when you have an All-Star back in the lineup,” Winslow said. ”It changes things Cordy Glenn Jersey Elite , for sure.”
Goran Dragic scored 23 points for Miami, which got 19 from Winslow and 14 from Josh Richardson.
Game 4 is Saturday afternoon.
Embiid banked in a turnaround straightaway jumper – a fortuitous bounce – to put Philadelphia up nine late, then connected on a 3-pointer and added a pair of throws to start the spurt that put away the game.
Meanwhile, Miami couldn’t find any sort of stride.
Hassan Whiteside was mired in foul trouble and ineffective, finishing the night all of 1 for 1 from the field for five points. Dwyane Wade, who Miami needed to be superb in the win at Philadelphia in Game 2, shot 2 for 10. Wayne Ellington, Miami’s single-season leader in 3-pointers after making a record 227 this season, was 1 for 5 from the floor.
The Heat won Game 2 by controlling the physical battle.
Game 3 was another street fight Youth Denzel Ward Jersey , and Philadelphia didn’t back down. Philly won Game 1 by dominating the second half, and Game 3 went a similar way. The 76ers outscored Miami 74-43 in the second half of Game 1, and 65-44 in the second half on Thursday.
”It’s clear that the first game and the third game were played on their terms,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.
TIP-INS
76ers: Philadelphia had a pair of shooters fouled beyond the 3-point line in the first quarter: Robert Covington made two of his three free throws, and Belinelli turned his chance into a four-point play. … Embiid missed his first five shots, then put his finger to his lips in the universal ”shush” sound to the crowd after getting his first one to fall.[Image: 4efa6953602b0591d975ad3ea2552765.jpg]
Heat: Winslow’s previous season high for scoring was 18. … Wade, who carried Miami to the win at Philadelphia in Game 2, didn’t get his first field goal in this one until 2:46 was left in the third. … The Heat allowed Philadelphia to shoot 51 percent.
MANY WHISTLES
The teams combined for 56 personal fouls – Heat 30, 76ers 26. Each team also was whistled for three technicals.
IN MEMORIAM
The game was preceded by a moment of silence to remember the lives of Erin Popovich Youth Logan Paulsen Jersey , the wife of San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich, and former first lady Barbara Bush. Brown is a former a Spurs assistant who has remained close with the Popovich family, and said Erin Popovich ”was a star, like a real star. A very strong woman, and somebody that will be missed.”
WELCOME BACK
Among those in the sold-out crowd were former Heat point guards Mario Chalmers and Jason Williams, the starters on Miami’s three NBA championship teams. Both got warm ovations when shown on the videoboards around the arena.
UP NEXT
Game 4 is Saturday in Miami, a rare 2:30 p.m. start.
