The Miami Heat nearly pulled off a great win on Tuesday night against the Sixers, but the 45 points from Joel Embiid were too much for the Heat to handle. Now, they will get another chance with their 8-man lineup.
Ravaged by the NBA health protocol, the Heat barely have enough players to play this game. And for the Sixers, they are getting some help back, namely Tobias Harris who returns from his own protocol time away.
The Heat will need great efforts again from their available players and hope the defensive game plan against Embiid works a little better. Miami has their work cut out for them, it expect them to play hard.
ODDS: FiveThirtyEight gives the Heat only a 16% chance to win the game.
