Miami Heat vs Philadelphia 76ers odds: tv channel schedule, preview, spread

Without Embiid, the Sixers have been rolling along anyway, but they'd obviously like to get him back on the court.

Going on a 16-game winning streak, Philadelphia is feeling itself right now. The Utah Jazz shooting guard is having a solid rookie season, averaging 20.5 points and almost four assists a game while shooting 44 percent from the field overall and 34 percent from three-point range.

"It was just a matter of going out there and enjoying myself and playing confident", Fultz said.

Philadelphia has confirmed Joel Embiid will not be ready for game one against the Heat after fracturing the orbital bone of his left eye in a collision with Markelle Fultz.

The Sixers beat up on some awful teams during their season-closing 16-game winning streak (only three of those 16 opponents will be in the playoffs this weekend), but still, 16 straight wins is impressive. "Now, I get to just tell everybody, 'I told you so, ' and brag on it".

The one team they played at full strength was the Cavaliers, but the Sixers almost blew a 30-point lead in that match-up and managed to win by just one basket.

According to HoopsHype, Fultz earned a little more than $7 million this season as part of his rookie contract and that number will continue to jump in the next couple of seasons, especially if Philly picks up the team option in 2019-20. Lately, however, everybody else is stepping up-including the sensational Ben Simmons. In a meaningful 132-130 victory over visiting Cleveland, Simmons had 27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists.

The Sixers have been given surprisingly short odds thanks to the emergence of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

No. 3 Philadelphia (52-30) will play host to No. 6 Miami (44-38) in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series on Saturday.

There are no world-beaters in the Eastern Conference.

The Sixers have plenty of offensive weapons, so it's on the defensive side where Johnson will be the most important, and it's where he's putting his energy as the Sixers prepare for their first playoff appearance in six years.

Simmons, who averaged 15.8 points, 8.2 assists and 8.1 rebounds while shooting 54.5 percent set an National Basketball Association rookie record with 12 triple-doubles and formed a devastating tandem with the other franchise cornerstone, All-Star center Joel Embiid, to lift the team back among the Eastern Conference's best.
