The Philadelphia Seventy Sixers and Miami Heat are set to square off tomorrow morning in an NBA Play-In match for the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference.

Philadelphia Seventy Sixers

The Philadelphia Seventy Sixers have been improving their game largely due to Joel Embiid's performance. As the reigning NBA MVP, Embiid missed the recent match against the Brooklyn Nets as a precautionary measure after injuring his knee, but his participation against the Miami Heat on Wednesday is still in question. Despite having played only 39 games this season, Embiid has been delivering impressive results, averaging 34.7 points and 11.0 rebounds following a two-month absence. His teammate Kelly Oubre mentioned in Monday's practice that Embiid appeared fine and serious about the game.

The Sixers concluded the regular season with eight consecutive victories, breezing past the Nets with a home game score of 107:86. In this match, Tyrese Maxey scored 26 points, making 10 out of 20 shots. Tobias Harris and Buddy Hield also made significant contributions scoring 21 and 19 points correspondingly. The Sixers had a 33 point lead at halftime and their robust defence maintained the lead during the second half. This victory positioned the Seventy Sixers into the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference paving the way for a first-round series against the New York Knicks, who are in the second spot. The team losing this match will face off against the Chicago Bulls or Atlanta Hawks for the 8th spot on Friday.

The team has been averaging 114.6 points per game with a 46.4% shot accuracy and allowing 111.5 points with a 46.8% opponent field goal percentage. Note, Embiid also averages 5.6 assists per game, Tyrese Maxey - 25.9 points and 3.7 rebounds per game. Tobias Harris stands as the team's third raw scorer, Kelly Oubre Jr. averages 5 rebounds per match. The team also records 36.3% from beyond the arc and 82.6% from the free-throw line.

Miami Heat

The Miami Heat has been producing consistent results in the current season. Jimmy Butler, also known as Playoff Jimmy, has been considerably contributing to the team’s progress, averaging 20.8 points, 5.0 assists, and 1.3 steals per game. Butler, who transferred from Philadelphia to Miami in summer 2019, has led the team to the NBA finals twice in the past four seasons. This ongoing season, Bam Adebayo is also delivering good results, averaging 19.3 points, and 10.4 rebounds per game.

In recent ten matches, the Heat claimed victories seven times, including a home win over the Raptors with a 118-103 score. In this match, James Jackson Jr. and Thomas Bryant each scored 18 points, Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro also chipped in 18 points each and Jimmy Butler added 15 points. The team displayed a robust performance, making 52% of their shots and 9/36 from the three-point line. In the second quarter, the Heat controlled the game, gaining a lead of 30 points allowing their chief players to rest.

The team averages 110.1 points per game with a 46.5% field goal percentage and allows 108.4 points on a 46.7% shooting from the opponents. The Miami Heat sinks 37% from downtown and 81.8% from the free throw line. They allow opponents to make three-pointers at the 35.3% level and average 42.3 rebounds a match.

Head-To-Head

During the most recent match against the Heat on April 6th, Embiid scored 29 points, helping the team seal a 109:105 victory.

Prediction for the Philadelphia Sixers . Miami Heat match

It's important to verify the lineups before the match, but I believe that Embiid didn't miss the critical Brooklyn match without reason and got a four-day rest period. If Philly's frontman can play, the team has a strong chance to win the home game against an inconsistent Miami, which often struggles to sustain a coherent attack.
