Justise Winslow Stepping On Joel Embiid's Mask May Have Backfired

Justise Winslow Stepping On Joel Embiid's Mask May Have Backfired

The Sixers now own a 2-1 series lead entering Game 4 in Miami on Saturday night, and it appears the Heat will have to deal with a very motivated Embiid.

It was annoying. But that was the only way I could play in this game, if I wore the mask and protected my face with goggles.

While Heat fans hoped and expected Whiteside to pick up his play when Embiid returned to action, he remained a non-factor as Philly's big man ran all over the Heat in his first game back since March 26. But the Heat never pushed to get a fifth or sixth foul on Embiid, even while he remained in the game while in foul trouble.

Spoelstra clearly has matchups in mind with this move, but Whiteside could surely be of help with Joel Embiid posting up and is a huge asset around the rim snagging loose balls nearly at will. He made his return from injury in the Sixers' Game 3 win over the Miami Heat, and he did it with his own flair, both during the game and after it. The 76ers are averaging more than 120 points per game during this season and Miami has also eclipsed the 100-mark on all three occasions. Dwyane Wade, who was superb in the win at Philadelphia in Game 2, shot 2-for-10.

The rotation shuffling might not have a big impact on the Sixers' fate this postseason, given that Simmons was on the bench for less than eight minutes of Game 3. Game 3 of the Eastern Conference first-round series was hard on many levels for Miami's center. "We are here to win a series". It didn't work, and the Pelicans took commanding 64-45 lead to start the third quarter. The couple had been married for four decades and had two children and two grandchildren.

The Stephen Curry-less Warriors dropped the Spurs 110-97 in San Antonio for a 3-0 lead in the west.

Many African countries upon independence "reverted to their ancient, native names", Mswati said earlier this morning. The kingdom, which has a population of around 1.3million, will be known by its historic name of eSwatini.

Coach Popovich was not in his customary position roaming the sidelines, choosing instead to be with his family.

"We are all hurting", Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili said after the morning shootaround. I was shocked that Anderson-Wade didn't result in something more than technical fouls and would assume that the league will make sure Game 4 is not almost as edgy as Game 3. Rajon Rondo chipped in 16 points and 11 assists for the Pelicans, who led by 33 points with seven minutes to play. "It's not an easy day to be here".

"It's basketball, it's always good to blow a team out".

LaMarcus Aldridge led San Antonio with 18 points.

Parker, who said Erin and Gregg were a mother and father to him when he entered the league as a 19-year-old, lived up to those wishes.
