Joel Embiid helps the 76ers take a series lead against the Heat

The 24-year-old previously suffered a concussion and a fractured orbital bone on March 28 when he collided with teammate Markelle Fultz after going for a loose ball in a 118-101 win over the New York Knicks. Promised the city that and made it happen. I wish more than anything that I was out there.

EMBIID: [Smiles] I don't know, it was just the only pictures I had in my phone, so I just had to go with that. They continued to play with their newfound offensive discipline, committing just 10 turnovers (Embiid contributed three of them), and they shot 18-of-34 from 3-point range, finally breaking Miami's spirit with a fourth-quarter barrage.

Unfortunately for the Sixers, that run came to an end on Monday but, fortunately for Embiid, he was back on Thursday to help his team get back on track.

The Philadelphia 76ers rebounded with a victory in Game 3 at the Miami Heat to grab a 2-1 series lead. "We all know what we think [Heat coach Erik Spoelstra] would be telling his team, what I would be telling my team if we lost at home". Bringing him back will take a little bit of time.

G Dwayne Wade was unable to replicate his Game 2 performance, as he was only able to score 8 points off the bench. They won their final eight Embiid-less games of the regular season with a league-best net rating of 15.5, as well as the league's highest rebound rate, assist ratio, and pace (about four possessions per game faster than they'd been playing before).

"It felt great", Embiid said. "Not only was he injured, but he had to play in a playoff game on the road in a mask".

"I'm going to be a nightmare for them, too". I hate sitting out. "I love this moment, I love being physical, I love attacking, I love contact".

I thought it was some tough shots, especially the one that I banked, and I could see in [Miami's] faces, that when you kind of make that type of shot, the guys on the other end they just go like [face of helplessness], and that's good.

This is the second time Embiid has injured this area of his face.

"It's a collaborative thing with Joel and doctors and me", Brown said. "The professionalism he showed and him doing whatever he could to return to play".

A fluke play temporarily broke the lenses off of Embiid's mask in the second, allowing the Heat to fully close the gap and take the lead at 46-43 with seven to play in the frame. Kevin Durant and Shaun Livingstone both left the game in the fourth with ankle injuries.

Game Four of the series will take place in Miami Saturday at 2:30 p.m. EST.

The Pelicans were never scared by the Portland Trail Blazers as they eased to a 119-102 victory for a commanding 3-0 advantage in their Western Conference matchup.

Now straddling a 2-1 lead with at least one more game still to play at the Wells Fargo Center, it's starting to look like the 76ers may pull this series out after all.
