Olynyk helps Heat to Game 2 victory over 76ers

JJ Redick #17 of the Philadelphia 76ers reacts against the Miami Heat in game one of round one of the 2018 NBA Playoffs on April 14, 2018 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and/or using this Photograph, user is consenting to the terms and conditions of the Getty Images License Agreement.

Dwyane Wade put in a vintage performance to help the Miami Heat peg the series back to 1-1.

After scoring 21 points on 8 of 9 shooting to rally the Heat from a nine-point deficit in the first half, Wade took the game over the fourth quarter after Philadelphia, winners of 17 in a row coming in, had trimmed the Heat's 16-point lead to 98-96 with 4:34 to play.

All the while, Wade couldn't miss.

Brown admitted afterward it was the type of game where he wished Embiid was playing before responding to his social media post. Again, there was no timetable on when Embiid would return this series, if at all. "He wants to play in front of the fans, and he wants to see this through", the coach said after the Sixers' 113-103 loss. And when he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated. How limited, and what happens if Spoelstra makes it really limited bears watching - not just for this series, but also as a prelude to a potential move away from Whiteside this summer (if Miami can find a taker for him).

Simmons led the Sixers with 24 points and Saric had 23.

Embiid has been sidelined since March 28 after suffering a broken orbital bone and concussion in a collision with teammate Markelle Fultz.

Brown added before Game 2 that Embiid might participate in on-court work with coaching staff or players who are not in the regular rotation to build up his conditioning.

The Sixers had won 17 consecutive games before losing to Miami in Game 2 at home.

The Heat had a lot it wanted to improve upon after getting crushed by the Sixers in Game 1 of these playoffs.
