But they can't get starting the game in a hole which has happened the last 2 games.

That falls back on the coach who don't have his team mentally prepared.

Winslow and Embiid is a great rivalry, I applaud the ferocity and they were 2 of the 3 best players in game 3.
Winslow: 19 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks, 1 steal, 4-6 treys, 27 minutes.
Embiid: 23 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 blocks, 1 steal, 3-4 treys, 30 minutes.

How Philly won this game is amazing. They were literally baking turnovers in the oven for the first 2.5 quarters. 27 total turnovers.

Impressive gritty win - coming back from back down 12 in the 3rdQ.

Embiid with the mask.. I can't believe he snuck into the game without it.

One to go...

It's because lots of NBA teams have a habit of playing stupid basketball when they have the lead. The Heat was up 12 and they continue to shoot 3's which missed and led to opportunities for the sixers. I always felt that if you are up 13 you don't need to shoot a three pointer because the other team is trying to catch up with you.

I actually think Coach is right that they settled down in the 4thQ - only 3 TOs... but the defense got a lot better. It makes things a lot easier when you don't give the Heat easy baskets with mindless TOs.

The Heat also missed 11 or 12 FTs.

I am shocked that the Blazers are playing so hard down 0-3 in the series when they been blown out in all the previous games. The Pelicans better be careful and not let this series go back to Portland for game 5.
