    This is where I wish philly’s depth was better. Should be a good series but gotta give the edge to the heat. Assuming butler and Lowry are good to go

    Harden best b praying embiid hand holds out if he doesn't want to b the carry.

    Heat looks tough

    Sixers will go up 3-1 and lose the series.

    I don't think out of the top 4 teams in the east, the heats r the strongest.

    Celtics were hit with injuries during regular, and 76ers aquire harden late, and the bucks has giannis.

    Really didn't watch the Bulls vs heats cause it was quite one sided, r they good?

    This should be an interesting match up.
    Miami maybe a better version of the Raptors

    I don't care, just eliminate the turncoat Harden.

    Goes down to coaching in the final minutes of each game - Heat in 6

    Maxey shot 90% at the rim against Toronto in the 1st round and averaged 21, 5, and 5 on 51/41/95 splits

    Tobias killed it too averaging 18, 10, and 3 on 52/43/88 splits

    washed Beard was 19 and 10 on 41/38/86

    Embiid was meh too, but he injured his thumb on his shooting hand

    Philly is definitely the underdog in this series

    Miami doesn’t have the plethora of long and athletic wing defenders that Toronto does, so Harden might have an easier time…Herro and Robinson are easy mismatches on D

    will be tough to switch the Harden-Embiid PnR because Bam is the only one who can even attempt to hold Embiid down low

    Idk what fountain of youth elixir Harden drank before last night’s game, but that’s the Harden Philly needs moving forward

    in the offseason, Philly desperately needs a legit starting caliber wing, because geriatric Danny Green and Thybulle ain’t it

    with the way Tobias has been playing since Harden arrived, I actually wouldn’t be in a rush to move him if I’m Philly…he’s a pretty good 4th option

    I can see this going Miami in 5 or even Philly in 6. So many injuries at play (Embiid, Butler, Lowry) that can swing all of the games. All I know is Duncan Robinson is still going to be on the back of a milk carton for this series because he can't defend anyone but they got Oladipo back now so that actually might work in Miami's favor.
