With another home win, the Miami Heat took a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Semifinals against the Philadelphia 76ers. Each team in the series has won their home games, giving the advantage to Miami, with Miami having home-court advantage in seven games. The Heat held the 76ers to just 36.5% from the field in Game 5 and will look to carry that kind of defense over to Game 6. Will the 76ers force a Game 7? Our picks, predictions, and odds for Thursday's game are between the Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers.

76ers vs. Heat Game 6 Line Movement

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Miami Heat Prediction

Throughout the series, the home team has won every game. With the 76ers heading back home for Game 6, there's reason to believe that the 76ers can end up in a Game 7 after all. In the two games where the 76ers were home, Philadelphia easily looked like the better team. In the first game, the 76ers won by 20 and held Miami to 79 points. In the other game, James Harden stepped up and helped the 76ers to a 116-108 win. Philadelphia fans make Wells Fargo Center a true home-court advantage. But the depth on the 76ers needs to step up. In Game 5, the 76ers were just lost to begin the game. No player earned 20 points on the 76ers and Joel Embiid only took 12 shots in the entire game. Yes, he's injured. But Embiid also played 33 minutes and scored just 17 points.

Meanwhile, the Heat have Tyler Herro and Victor Oladipo coming off the bench. There's some major depth off the bench for the Heat that the 76ers just can't match.

Also, Max Strus shot 40% from downtown in Game 5 and he was struggling to find success in recent games before that one. Jimmy Butler has also been the best player and most consistent player on the floor this series between both sides.

If the Heat doesn't beat the 76ers in Game 6, the home game for Game 7 would go the Heat's way. But Miai would rather finish up the series now. The 76ers are about to fold. They lost the rebounding battle by 10. allowed five more turnovers and just got destroyed in the paint in Game 5.

I'll stick with the Heat in Game 6, even on the road.
