Philadelphia 76ers Robert Covington is team's enforcer

Ben Simmons fell just one rebound short of a triple-double to sensationally lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a game one 130-103 blowout victory over the Miami Heat in the NBA Playoffs.

Embiid was a spectator in Game 1 of the first-round series because of a broken orbital bone around his left eye.

Embiid ditched the black mask he's been wearing in light shooting drills for a white "Phantom of the Opera" mask to ring the ceremonial Liberty Bell before tipoff.

The Miami Heat finished the 2017-18 season with a record of 44-38, good enough for sixth in the Eastern Conference, which means they'll be taking on the third-seeded Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs.

The teams will compete in Game 2 in Philadelphia before the series moves to South Beach. It's no secret how we've won games and how we play.

Mohamed Salah will be desperate to tighten his grip on the Golden Boot today as he starts in attack along with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino .

The expectation after last season's 18-win improvement was to have a Sixers team healthy enough to make a run at a.500 record with the possibility of playoffs in a weak Eastern Conference.

The 76ers host Game 2 on Monday night, with Game 3 set for Thursday night in Miami. So will his jersey, at least for Game 1. This is the type of first round series that has the chance of going seven games.

"It's still about what's best for Joel's health", Brown said after practice Sunday. Embiid's early absence could end up being what pushes the Heat over the top in this series. Failing that, they need to anticipate every down screen and cover every corner look for J.J. Redick and Dario Saric (and their reasonably like-for-like replacements, Belinelli and Ilyasova). Embiid is a first-team All-NBA candidate as well as Defensive Player of the Year candidate. The 76ers finished the regular season on a 16-game winning streak despite his absence. Whiteside also had eight rebounds and two blocked shots.

He will be tasked with keeping Heat center Hassan Whiteside in check.
