New, comments

It’s a do or die time for the Miami Heat as they hit the road for Game 5, we preview the matchup

NBA: Playoffs-Philadelphia 76ers at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Game Story:

Well here we go. The Heat are up against the wall in a do or die matchup against the 76ers in Philadelphia. It’s not going to be simple, and the Heat will once again have to bite and scratch their way through the game (hopefully through all 4 quarters). We know what the 76ers can dish out, and so do the Heat. After four games they should come out with the necessary adjustments.

One thing is for certain, this team will not go out easy.

  • Josh Richardson (Questionable)
  • James Johnson
  • Hassan Whiteside
