Miami Heat Beat 76ers - Winning Moments

The Miami Heat came out like a team with a purpose to open Monday evening’s Game 1 contest against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Attacking the middle of their defense relentlessly to begin the game, the Heat would take a double-digit lead early.

The Miami Heat came out like a team with a purpose to open Monday evening’s Game 1 contest against the Philadelphia 76ers.

It wasn’t to continue though, as the 76ers would free themselves of the zone defense they had run to begin the game.

Eventually going on a run of their own, they would hold the Heat to just six points over the final six minutes of the second half.

Because of that, the 76ers would actually take a one-point lead into the half, 51-50.

That wouldn’t sit well with Miami though, apparently, as they would come out to put the Philadelphia team away in the second half.

Outscoring them, 56-41, in the second half of play, that would be enough to account for the one-point deficit and see them run away with it.

They would finish the game on the right side of things, 106-92, where the final three minutes or so of play saw both head coaches clear their benches to get their main guys out.
