Olynyk helps Heat to Game 2 victory over 76ers

The first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs continues today with Game 2 in the Miami-Philadelphia and San Antonio-Golden State series.

The Sixers lost for the first time since March 13 to Indiana.

Heat: Goran Dragic scored 20 points and James Johnson had 18. Moments later, he put the win on ice with an 18-foot jumper with 45.8 seconds to play. Embiid had hoped to play in Game 2 after the NBA's concussion protocol, but the Sixers are being conservative with his return to the court and ultimately ruled him out.

It started with defense and keeping the Sixers off the three-point line. He was 81. He's the 76ers' career leader in points, field goals, field goals attempted, games and minutes played. After collecting 35 assists on Saturday and scoring 130 points, Philly finished with 22 assists Monday.

Wade's play resembled his glory days at times and he carried the Heat in a sensational second quarter that was the difference. What this means is that the Heat are capable of blitzing the Sixers from the outside, so look for an uptempo, high possession battle in game 2.

They battled back in the 4th quarter, but it wasn't enough. He picked up his fourth foul with 9:25 left in the third quarter and watched from the bench the rest of the game.

Hassan Whiteside, the Heat's high-paid big man, saw just 12 minutes on the night due to his glaring inability to chase around perimeter shooters.

Dwyane Wade rolled back the years with a vintage performance as the Miami Heat ended Philadelphia's 17-game winning streak to level their Eastern Conference playoff series on Monday. However, crucial misses eventually led to Wade burying multiple buckets to seal the game late on.

The 36-year-old erupted for 15 points in the second quarter, with a series of pump fakes and fadeaways that made it feel like 2009.

Wade's experience proved crucial throughout, inspiring a first-half fightback to wipe out the 76ers' early lead before shepherding Miami to the win in a nervy finale.

Simmons led the Sixers with 24 points and Saric had 23.
