Philadelphia 76ers at Miami Heat (-3.5, 210)

Game 5: Series tied 2-2

The Miami Heat have some issues to figure out on offense if they want to stop this skid and take a critical 3-2 series lead tonight. The Heat averaged just 100.5 points per 100 possessions in the two games at Philadelphia while shooting 22.2% from beyond the arc, and as those struggles coincide with the series hitting the road it also happens to coincide the return of Joel Embiid as well. Embiid changes everything for Philadelphia defensively, and now the issues Miami has had in halfcourt settings are being exacerbated by his presence. The 76ers are going to be tough to score on if Embiid is on the floor, so the onus is on their offense to continue the efficient scoring it found at home.
