Wade the catalyst as Heat beat 76ers

  • Heat-76ers has Joel Embiid cursing and Gabrielle Union promising Dwyane Wade a reward

He turned in a vintage performance, scoring 28 points to end the 76ers' 17-game winning streak and lead the Miami Heat to a 113-103 Game 2 win over Philadelphia on Monday night and even the first-round playoff series.

"Joel is a superstar".

Though Covington was a victim to Wade's fadeaway on that play, the three-time National Basketball Association champ was a victim to the Sixers' defense through most of the second half. "He just wants to be with his team". "He wants to see this through", Brown said.

How has Sixers' Markelle Fultz remained positive amidst chaos?

Wade contributed with baskets, assists and free throws over the final 4 minutes to close out the win. After the game, Wade told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne that Sixers fans can "thank Kevin Hart" for his throwback performance in Game 2.

FIRST TO ALERT: Storms end later this morning! Details here
It's a messy start to Sunday across the Chattahoochee Valley as a line of showers and storms continues to push through the area. Sound familiar? The timing could certainly change between now and late next week, so we'll keep our eyes on it for you.

"Tonight was about us bringing more of a physical mindset as a group", Wade said after the game.

The 24-year-old Embiid established himself as one of the NBA's top big men and most colorful personalities this season, averaging 22.9 points per game along with 11 rebounds to help the 76ers reach the post-season for the first time in six years.

"I think Dwyane's steal changed the game", Brown said. Philadelphia lost Monday for the first time in Embiid's 10-game absence.

Embiid appears antsy to return to the floor, so don't be surprised to see him in Thursday's Game 3.

The 76ers held a moment of silence for Hall of Famer Hal Greer.

Winter storm warning continues for several counties
On the west coast, Vancouver can expect to see off and on rain showers into Monday, but no heavy rainfall is anticipated. No significant precipitation is forecasted for the rest of the week, though some light snow is possible on Wednesday.

Wade's experience proved crucial throughout, inspiring a first-half fightback to wipe out the 76ers' early lead before shepherding Miami to the win in a nervy finale. "He was class. He was a gentleman", Brown said.

Once one of the best players in the league, Wade is now relegated to the bench, but he went for 28 points and 7 rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench to pace the Heat's attack, that also collected 20 points from fellow guard Goran Dragic.

Embiid averaged 22.9 points while grabbing 11 boards and nearly two blocks per game, showing his importance on both ends of the floor for a relatively inexperienced Philadelphia team.

Wade had 21 of his points in the first half, helping bolster an 18-2 Heat run that flipped the entire game script, impacting what felt like every possession and sending a message as it pertained to Miami's postseason makeup.
