Miami Heat vs. Philadelphia 76ers Prediction

Philly comes into this game as the seven-seed and a four-point favorite.

It was an up-and-down season for the Sixers, which ended with 47 wins.

The Sixers ended the season red hot, winners of eight consecutive games.

The main reason for the late-season success was the reigning MVP, Joel Embiid.

The 76ers have a record of 31-8 with Embiid in the lineup this season.

Philly was 16-27 in the absence of Embiid.

Embiid leads the Sixers with 34.7 points per game and 11.0 rebounds.

Tyrese Maxey is the favorite to win and the most improved player in the NBA. The former Kentucky Wildcat was an all-star this season, averaging 25.9 points and a team-best 6.5 assists.

Tobias Harris has added 17.2 points per game and 6.5 rebounds.

The Sixers' offense has scored 114.6 points per game.

The Heat begin this contest with a record of 46-36.

Miami will get two cracks at the play-in game.

Even if the Heat do not win this game, they will face the winner of the Hawks vs Bulls.

These two teams split the regular season series 2-2.

The Heat won the year's first two games, but the Sixers bounced back and won the final two meetings.

Miami reached the finals last year but came up short against the Denver Nuggets.

Jimmy Butler leads the Heat with 20.8 points and 5.0 assists.

Big man Bam Adebayo has averaged a double-double with 19.3 points and 10.4 rebounds.

Tyler Herro has added 20.8 points per game and 4.5 assists.

Miami averaged 110.1 points per game.

Miami Heat vs. Philadelphia 76ers Pick

This line screams 76ers.

As mentioned, when Embiid is on the floor, the Sixers are 31-8.

Miami will be without Terry Rosier, which will hurt an already limited offensive team.

The Sixers have been great at home this year (25-16).
