76ers C Embiid (orbital fracture) ruled out of Game 2

76ers C Embiid (orbital fracture) ruled out of Game 2

The 76ers will look to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven first round series against the Heat on Monday. The two have constantly been given praise for their defense and this season they both finished in the top 25 for defensive win shares, according to the National Basketball Association. The Heat are outmatched, talent-for-talent, but they're an older, savvy group with a top-5 coach that knows how to go get wins in the postseason.

Thompson was lethal, shooting an astounding 85 per cent from the field by connecting with 11 of 13 field goals and five of six three-point attempts for 27 points.

The Raptors host Game 2 on Tuesday. The third-seeded Sixers finished the regular season 52-30, riding into the playoffs with a 16-game winning streak. Undrafted, he plays a special role for the team.

The Heat (6) are hoping their centers, Hassan Whiteside and rookie rebounding extraordinaire Bam Adebayo, can take advantage of Embiid's absence.

After game two Monday, the 76ers will stay in Philadelphia for workouts before traveling to Miami on Wednesday ahead of game three on Thursday, the soonest Embiid could return to the lineup.

Brown won 47 games his first three seasons as the Sixers underwent the Process - and 52, plus Game 1 this season.

Anthony Davis scored 35 points and grabbed 14 rebounds as visiting New Orleans held off Portland to win the opener of their first-round Western Conference playoff series. Dario Saric, who the Sixers waited for two years to come over while he played overseas, also buried a 3 off an assist from Simmons. However, when it's Whiteside and Johnson on the court, it's Whiteside by far.

"That's part of Joel's return-to-play plan", Brown said.
