Foul leads to on-court scrum in Sixers-Heat

That should be obvious with the way the Heat veteran has battled off the bench against the Philadelphia 76ers in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series.

The Sixers prevailed over the Heat with a 128-108 win in Game 3, which was marked by the return of Philly big man Joel Embiid. This has happened to the Heat all season long and it really has you scratching your head at times.

Dwyane Wade's competitive fire still burns as bright as ever, even in the twilight of his future Hall of Fame career and his second stint with the Miami Heat. Can the 76ers secure a 3-1 lead or will the Heat knot the series? Ersan Ilyasova was key in that stretch with a driving and-one and the next time down the court a three, two plays that changed the momentum of the game.

In Game 4, the Sixers kept running "horns" sets and the Heat seemed to have no answers.

Tough the team struggled to hit shots from behind the arc, completing only seven of their 31 three-point attempts, the Sixers once again made a living at the free throw line, completing nearly 80 percent of their shots from the charity stripe for 52 points. "I'm going to be a nightmare for them too".

The Sixers can clinch their ticket to the second round on Tuesday night back at the Wells Fargo Center. Miami also shot itself in the foot going 13-of-25 from the free throw line for the game. Ben Simmons is averaging 19.3 points and 9.8 assists while Dario Saric is averaging 18.8 points and 7.3 rebounds. Goran Dragic had 20 points for Miami, and James Johnson added 15.
