Joel Embiid 'wants green light to play' for Philadelphia 76ers

Sixers grab 1-0 series lead over Heat in first playoff win in six years

The Philadelphia 76ers suffered their first loss in more than a month and Ben Simmons was not happy about it. Ilyasova averaged 14.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and shot 35.9 percent on three-pointers in 53 games, including 40 starts, with the Sixers during the 2016-17 campaign.

The Heat halted that in game two by sending a rotation of defenders to get in Simmons' face and harass his shooters. The team looked like a well-oiled machine thanks to a collective effort from the players and head coach Brett Brown.

"They were bending us backwards".

They battled back in the 4th quarter, but it wasn't enough. A three-time National Basketball Association champion, Wade has settled into a bench role in his return to the Heat, but the team likes to play through the veteran guard when he's on the floor.

Wade finished with 28 points off the bench, shooting 11-of-17 from the field.

A local reporter for The Arab News said Israeli warplanes were spotted in Syrian airspace just before the missiles were reported. Reuters cited Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon as saying that "there is no USA military activity in that area at this time".

"I just came in with an aggressive approach", Wade said afterwards.

"He does so many different things for his team".

Philadelphia meanwhile were left reflecting on their first loss since early March, jolting their momentum as the series heads to Miami for game three on Thursday.

Mills' 21 points was a personal playoff record and a return to form after the struggles he suffered in game one on Saturday.

LaMarcus Aldridge was the best for the Spurs with 34 points and 12 rebounds.

Embiid could, however, feature in Game 3 which takes place on Thursday.
