Embiid, who passed concussion protocol this week after suffering a fractured orbital bone, was not cleared to play for Game 2 and let his emotions show on Instagram after watching the Heat tie the series at 1-1.

As Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said going in, it didn't matter how the Heat escaped Philadelphia with a victory, only that they did.

Officials whistled 30 fouls in the first half as Miami took advatage of the typically speedy Sixers and held them to 42 points, almost 15 lower than their regular season average.

The Heat appeared to be in danger of getting blown out again when Father Prime rescued them with a bevy of buckets off the bench in the first half.
