Heat vs. 76ers Game 2 score updates: Dwyane Wade leads Miami into 4th quarter lead

  • Tue, 17 Apr 2018 09:35

Wade leads Miami in the first half with 19 points in a vintage performance.

Heat 81, Sixers 67 - 1:52 3Q

DWYANE WADE HAS 23 POINTS!

Heat 71, Philly 59 - 5:46 3Q

Philly came out ready to take this thing over but Miami has a response for every Sixers run.

Heat 56, Sixers 42 - Halftime

An 18-2 run by Miami.
21 points from Dwyane Wade.
A 12 point lead at the half for Miami.

Heat 50, Sixers 39 - 2:25 2Q

This is Miami’s biggest lead of the series so far!

Heat 38, Sixers 31 - 5:40 2Q

Dwyane Wade goes on scoring 15 points and giving Miami a much needed boost. The energy I mentioned in Wells Fargo Center earlier? It’s a bit quiet now. Goran Dragic also just checked out as that entire run happened while he was on the bench with foul trouble.

Heat 30, Sixers 29 - 8:31 2Q

DWYANE WADE IS HAPPENING. HE HAS 12 POINTS ON 5-OF-5 SHOOTING IN SEVEN MINUTES.

Sixers 29, Heat 22 - End of 1Q

Dwyane Wade checked in and gave Miami a quick six points, which was huge because it felt like this was truly slipping away for the Heat. If there was one play to sum up the first quarter for Philly ... it was this crazy transition three-pointer from Marco Belenilli.

Sixers 23, Heat 16 - 2:44 1Q

This already feels like its slipping away from Miami and this certainly isn’t helping.

Sixers 13, Heat 11 - 5:18 1Q

Miami went 4-of-5 from the floor to start the game and have gone 1-9 since. Explains why the Sixers have just taken their first lead of the game.

And we have a Kevin Hart sighting!

Heat 11, Sixers 8 - 7:25 1Q

It’s loud as humanly possible in Wells Fargo Center even though Miami has been off to a hot start. The problem for Miami is that while Goran Dragic came out and scored a quick six points and he also picked up two extremely quick fouls. He’ll have to sit for quite a while now.

Pregame:

The Sixers had a moment of silence before Game 2 to honor the passing of Sixers great Hal Greer.


The Philadelphia 76ers laid waste to the Miami Heat in the first round of the 2018 NBA playoffs, and will try for a 2-0 series lead on Monday. The 76ers ride a 17-game winning streak into Game 2, which will begin at 8 p.m. ET on TNT (live streaming via TNTDrama.com or the TNT App on various devices).

Philadelphia, a young, aggressive team, controlled the pace and every aspect of their first meeting with Miami, a grinding team that could not grind the 76ers. At least in Game 1. They’ll try and slow Philadelphia down again on Monday, but there are several key contributors and keeping up with all of them is a tall order for the sixth-seeded Heat.

JJ Reddick had 28 points, including hitting 4-of-6 from range. Marco Belinelli had 25 points and 33 minutes off the bench, and also hit four 3-pointers. Ben Simmons, in his playoff debut, had 17 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds.

Kelly Olynyk had 26 points for the Heat, who had the lead at the half, but were out-scored 34-18 in the third quarter. The Sixers took that game by a wide margin — 130-103 — and many believe they will keep rolling on Monday.

It’s all about pacing and momentum for the 76ers at this point. If they can hit the ground running in Game 2, and the Heat have no immediate answer, they just might take a 2-0 series lead. They have to hit the ground running and carry the same kind of intensity they had in the first outing.
