Opened up on a 10-2 run 🔥 – 8:58 PM

@NateDuncanNBA
Harden doesn’t bother to get loose ball, then lets Tucker dribble right by him, then lets Butler also run past him for the tip dunk. – 8:58 PM

@TimBontemps
Joel Embiid hits the first shot of the 2nd half for Philadelphia – only to be followed by 10 straight Miami points to balloon the lead back to 20. – 8:58 PM

@Ky_Carlin
The start of this 3rd quarter is gonna be critical. Philadelphia has to come out and make a statement and put the Heat on their heels a bit to get back in the game. #Sixers8:47 PM
Law Murray
@LawMurrayTheNU
That might have been the worst first half Joel Embiid played on both ends of the floor since Ben Simmons was on the Nets bench in Philadelphia – 8:43 PM
Greg Dickerson
@gregdickerson13
Same w the sixers..no way Miami was going to play badly and lose 3 straight…that’s a one game winner takes all coming up in a week – 8:43 PM
Austin Krell
@NBAKrell
Miami +6 on the glass, +2 on turnovers, +1 on threes made.
Sixers should be down by more than 20. LIV on Collins Ave got them in the first half, but being down 12 at halftime isn’t the worst thing in the world. – 8:42 PM
Law Murray
@LawMurrayTheNU
76ers allowed 11 first quarter points to each of Jimmy Butler and Max Strus, then allowed 11 second quarter points to Victor Oladipo – 8:39 PM

@wcgoldberg
Heat lead the Sixers 56-44 at the half. Have already made as many 3s (7) as they did all of last game. Jimmy Butler has 14. James Harden has 10 points and four asissts. Embiid is 2 of 6 from the field. – 8:37 PM
Gina Mizell
@ginamizell
HALFTIME: Heat 56, Sixers 44. Miami led by as many as 18, and it feels like the deficit should be much greater. Sixers are shooting 37.5 percent from the floor and have 9 turnovers. Harden has 10-5-4. – 8:37 PM
Rich Hoffman
@rich_hofmann
Kinda think the only positive from that half from the Sixers’ standpoint is that Embiid was able to keep playing after taking the hit to the face.
They got outplayed pretty badly on both ends. And yet, somehow just a 12-point game. – 8:37 PM
Brady Hawk
@BradyHawk305
Heat controlled the first half throughout
The Max Strus spark to start
Jimmy Butler energy and scoring dominance
Bam Adebayo playing big
PJ Tucker as the release valve
And a very high level Victor Oladipo offensively – 8:36 PM
Ky Carlin
@Ky_Carlin
The Heat lead it 56-44 at halftime. It’s pretty insane that it’s only a 12-point game considering how bad they were in that half. #Sixers8:35 PM
Anthony Chiang
@Anthony_Chiang
Halftime: Heat 56, 76ers 44. Jimmy Butler with 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting, six rebounds and three assists. Heat shooting 7 of 18 on threes. – 8:35 PM
Tim Bontemps
@TimBontemps
Halftime: Miami 56, Philly 44.
This feels reminiscent to Game 3 in Toronto, when Philly was down 10 and it felt like the 76ers should be down at least 20. Just about everything went wrong, and they’re somehow still within striking distance going into the break. – 8:35 PM
Ira Winderman
@IraHeatBeat
Heat go up 18 in second period, take 56-44 lead into half. Butler with 14 for Heat, Strus and Oladipo 11 each. – 8:35 PM
John Hollinger
@johnhollinger
First game of the series where it isn’t just a shoulder shrug and “MOML” … Heat pretty seriously outplaying Philly – 8:33 PM
Brady Hawk
@BradyHawk305
As I was hinting at a lot prior to this game, Miami has basically completely run their sets out of the empty corner
That’s the opening – 8:32 PM
Nick Friedell
@NickFriedell
All the open looks the Heat were missing in Games 3 and 4 are the same ones the Sixers are missing in Game 5.
The Heat, who went 14-for-65 from beyond the arc in Philly, are now 7-for-18 from beyond the arc tonight. – 8:31 PM
Anthony Chiang

The Heat made seven threes in both Games 3 and 4.
The Heat has made seven threes in the first half tonight. – 8:31 PM

His Playoff presence this season is the biggest proof how good leader he is. Joel Embiid plays through pain, bumps and bruises. The real meaning of resilience! #Sixers #PhilaUnite8:28 PM
Gina Mizell
@ginamizell
I’m sure the fan sitting behind us who just yelled “This isn’t the WNBA! Step up!” in regards to Embiid would play through a broken eye socket and torn thumb ligament during his YMCA pick-up game. Assuming he can still play at that level. – 8:26 PM
Wes Goldberg
@wcgoldberg
The Sixers are happy to keep defending Jimmy Butler 1 on 1, and Jimmy Butler is happy to keep scoring. He’s up to 14 points on 6 of 9 shooting. – 8:25 PM

Jimmy Butler’s 13th point moved him past JoJo White for 87th on the NBA all-time playoff list. – 8:25 PM

Can’t shy away. Has to be same Embiid. Otherwise, it’s over. – 8:25 PM
Noah Levick
@NoahLevick
Joel Embiid got up, took a detour on his way to the sidelines to express his displeasure at the no-call on Dewayne Dedmon.
Looked like Embiid was briefly checked out on the bench by medical staffers, given the OK to stay in after taking a hit to the face. – 8:25 PM
Nick Friedell
@NickFriedell
Embiid was down on the ground in what appeared to be serious pain after getting knocked in face by the ball after it got deflected.
He walked slowly back to the bench and got checked out by the Sixers medical staff — but he is staying in the game. – 8:24 PM

Joel Embiid is down after being hit in the face. It looked like Dewayne Dedmon hit him right in the face on the right side, where he has the fracture.
Embiid appears to be in a ton of pain. Doc Rivers was given a technical foul by Kane Fitzgerald, as well. – 8:22 PM

Jimmy being back in can help that – 8:17 PM

Hey, those Heat fans have some life! People can change! – 8:17 PM
Austin Krell
@NBAKrell
If you want a good example of why Duncan Robinson was out of the rotation until tonight, look no further than Tyrese Maxey seeing him backpedaling in transition and going from like 20 to 70 in milliseconds to take advantage and get to the rim. – 8:16 PM
Nate Duncan
@NateDuncanNBA
Paul Reed at the 4 along with Embiid and 3 guards. Interesting. Spo gets a timeout immediately, let’s see how he matches up. – 8:15 PM
Austin Krell
@NBAKrell
Good adjustment from Doc, keeping Reed in the game with Embiid. – 8:14 PM
Ky Carlin
@Ky_Carlin
Bball Paul and Joel Embiid minutes. Let’s get weird. #Sixers8:14 PM

Maxey finally on the board with two free throws after missing his first four shots. He was upset with himself for not converting that and-1. – 8:14 PM

Heat making the most of transition and semi-transition opportunities tonight off of 76ers misses and turnovers. Philly shooting 34.6 percent from the field and has seven turnovers. – 8:10 PM
John Schuhmann
@johnschuhmann
Sixers have gotten some good looks when they’ve pushed off TOs & rebounds. Miami transition defense could be better. – 8:09 PM
Nate Duncan
@NateDuncanNBA
220 ortg in transition for Miami, 40 for Philly. A few of those Miami transition buckets came off missed transition for Philly. – 8:08 PM
Ky Carlin
@Ky_Carlin
Terrible start to this game for Philadelphia. They can’t buy an open shot, they’re turning the ball over, and the Heat are making their open triples. It’s a 36-22 deficit after that Caleb Martin drive. #Sixers8:07 PM
Gina Mizell
@ginamizell
Sixers are 3-of-11 from 3, have 5 turnovers and are allowing the Heat to shoot 52 percent.
Predictably, they trail 36-22 early in the second. The home-road differences — for both teams — remains stark. It’s kind of impressive, really. – 8:07 PM
Wes Goldberg
@wcgoldberg
Heat doing a good job of getting out and running, but the Sixers’ transition defense has been as bad as I’ve seen it this series. – 8:07 PM
Brady Hawk
@BradyHawk305
Caleb Martin giving great minutes
We know about the defense, but this attack is a game changer
Great defensive start in general as well for this team – 8:07 PM
Anthony Chiang
@Anthony_Chiang
Embiid out of the game and Heat getting to the rim. Heat leads 36-22. – 8:07 PM

Heat acting head coach Kyle Lowry is very active right now. So is Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra, who probably doesn’t mind the help. – 8:06 PM
Miami Heat
@MiamiHEAT

John Schuhmann

31-19 Heat after 1st quarter.
Just the second quarter in this series won (by either team) by double-digits. Sixers won G3 4th quarter by 17. – 8:02 PM
Ira Winderman
@IraHeatBeat
Caleb Martin also playing, so Heat going 10 deep. – 8:02 PM
Barry Jackson
@flasportsbuzz
Strus was very hard on himself over the weekend. He’s very serious, demanding of himself. 11 points in 1st quarter. Heat 20-5 with him starting. – 8:00 PM
Tim Bontemps
@TimBontemps
After 1: Miami 31, Philly 19.
Miami went 5-for-11 on its 3s, committed one turnover and got Jimmy Butler going (11 points on 5-for-8 shooting).
Philly committed four turnovers that became 8 Heat points, went 2-for-7 from 3-point range and Joel Embiid wasn’t involved enough. – 8:00 PM
Noah Levick
@NoahLevick
Interesting end to the first with Duncan Robinson getting his first non-garbage time action of the series, Jimmy Butler and Georges Niang going back and forth.
Butler’s got 51 points on 28 FGAs the last five quarters. – 7:59 PM
Keith Pompey
@PompeyOnSixers
Heat lead 31-19 after one quarter. The Sixers are 28.6% on threes, can’t make stops and look flat. – 7:59 PM
Joe Vardon
@joevardon
The Heat had to have someone other than Jimmy Butler get some buckets. Through Q1, that man is Max Strus, who poured in 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting. Butler, meanwhile, remains dominant. His 11 points give him 84 points in his last nine quarters. – 7:59 PM

Embiid looks lethargic out there. Fatigue, injuries, Miami’s physical defense — maybe a combination of all three — but he’s getting pushed off his spots and isn’t active in the paint. – 7:57 PM

Heat are 3-of-8 from 3 but have 14 points in the paint while building a 25-14 lead late in the first. Sixers are 1-of-5 from 3, including misses from Maxey, Harden, Green and Niang. – 7:51 PM

Rich Hoffman
@rich_hofmann
Can not have three worse possessions in a row than that.
— Embiid doesn’t give the ball to Maxey early, messes up 2-on-1
— Harden stripped
— Green bad pass over the top, Embiid saves it for a turnover
Seven straight Miami points off those three turnovers. – 7:42 PM
Nick Friedell
@NickFriedell
Bubble Jimmy is ready to roll in Game 5. He’s already got 9 points midway through the first and is hyped up waving to the crowd for more energy. This was exactly the start the Heat needed him to get off to without Lowry on the floor. – 7:42 PM

Jimmy Butler with nine of the Heat’s first 18 points. Heat opens on an 18-10 run. 76ers call timeout as a song from Bad Bunny’s new album plays at FTX Arena. Miami! – 7:42 PM
Gina Mizell
@ginamizell
Strus is fired up after that 3 that prompts a Doc timeout. Heat are 8-of-13 from the floor to start, continuing the trend of the home team shooting well and the road team…not so much (Sixers are 4-of-9 but have three turnovers) – 7:41 PM
Ky Carlin
@Ky_Carlin
Some bad offensive possessions to start this game. A few bad turnovers has led to some easy transition baskets for the Heat. It’s an 18-10 deficit early. #Sixers7:41 PM
Tim Bontemps
@TimBontemps
Just a disastrous series of possessions there for Philadelphia, including Joel Embiid appearing to tweak his back after diving into the stands. Poor offensive execution leading to repeated open looks for Miami, and allowing the Heat to jump out to an early 18-10 lead. – 7:41 PM
Kyle Neubeck

In first 2 games the Sixers:
* Couldn’t defend man-to-man
* Went to zone, got destroyed on glass
* Struggled to create in half-court
Then Embiid returned and they won 2 straight.
MVP award or not, he impacts the game like few in franchise history have.

James Harden certainly isn’t going out and dropping 30 a game anymore. But when he finds that extra scoring gear, everything changes for Philadelphia.

The Sixers’ offensive execution was not perfect in Game 4. There were possessions late in which Miami defended them well. That could matter moving forward.
