Match Predict – Handicap (-2) for 76ers
As I wrote above, the Miami Heat is worse on the road than at home. Unsurprisingly, the Philadelphia 76ers are seen as slight favourites for the sixth game in the series.
In the previous game, the Sixers were let down by realization. It’s very likely that Doc Rivers’s men will improve their shot stats. The home court should help them do that.
Total Points – Over 206
In the last match between the teams in Pennsylvania, 224 points were scored. It is likely that history will repeat itself.
Home Side Points – Over 103.5
In 3 of the last 4 games, the Heat have scored more than 102.5 points.
Preliminary review and match prediction for Philadelphia 76ers vs Miami Heat
The return of Joel Embiid helped the Philadelphia 76ers tie the series. The home games also played an important part in that. At the Wells Fargo Centre, Doc Rivers’ team performed better than they did on the road, so they were able to do it. However, when the series moved to Florida, the 76ers were once again unsuccessful.
The 76ers are again trailing 2-3 in the series. The 76ers suffered a devastating -35 point defeat in Miami (85-120). One bad game could deny the Philadelphia 76ers the chance to play in the NBA semi-finals.

In the lost meeting, Joel Embiid scored 17 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists.
After the game against the Heat, the 76ers’ coach criticized his own team. There was no margin for error. A home loss would knock their opponents into the tournament semifinals and the Sixers would leave the NBA before next season.
The Sixers outscored the Toronto Raptors (4-2) in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
It’s no secret that the Miami Heat has been excellent at the American Airlines Centre. In the regular season, the Heat lost only 12 games on the home court.
A strong win by the Heat moved the team closer to their target. The Miami Heat is already knocking on the door of the NBA semi-finals. The decisive step remained to be taken.

Jimmy Butler was the most productive player in the battle. He scored 23 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists.
Earlier, the Eastern champion defeated the Atlanta Hawks (4-1). It was the first round of the playoffs.
If the Miami Heat are successful, the semifinals will be played against the winner of the Boston Celtics vs the Milwaukee Bucks.
In three of the last five head-to-head encounters, the game started with an accurate two-point shot.

- The Heat are averaging 23.7 assists and 40.6 rebounds per game;
- Jimmy Butler is averaging 28.3 points per game in the playoffs;
