Jimmy Butler scored 32 points, Max Strus added 20 points and 11 rebounds and Miami prevailed 99-90 over the Philadelphia 76ers. The Heat got the road win and qualified to the Eastern Conference finals without facing much adversity.
With Joel Embiid clearly affected by his injury woes, finishing the game with 20 points on 7/24 FG and 12 rebounds, the Sixers were not ready for the challenge and disappointed their fans. Many of them left the arena just after the start of the last quarter, when Miami’s lead jumped to 20 points.
It all went wrong for home team and that even included Danny Green was injured on his left knee just after three minutes of play and missing the rest of the game. Turkish guard Furkan Korkmaz was used for eight minutes, having two points and had two rebounds for the Sixers.
Miami will face the winners of the series between the Bucks and the Celtics, with Milwaukee having a 3-2 lead and the next game at home.
