The Philadelphia 76ers, tied 1-1 in a best of seven Eastern Conference series in the 2018 NBA Playoffs, meet the Miami Heat in Game 3 on Thursday, April 19, 2018 (4/19/18) at American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.
Dwyane Wade snuffed out one 76ers’ rally by popping a 16-foot fadeaway with the shot clock ticking down. Wade made a halfhearted attempt at reaching his hand out toward a fallen defender before he scooted on his way.
The Heat had to have this one a brooding Joel Embiid is angling for a comeback.
You need Joel Embiid, Sixers coach Brett Brown said.
Embiid went on Instagram after the game and wrote, sick and tired of being babied.
Pack the black mask for Miami.
Joel is a superstar. Of course we’re missing him offensively, defensively, Sixers forward Dario Saric said. He’s a guy who wants to play all the time. I can’t wait for Joel to come back and help us because we’re a better team with him.
Alex Smith won’t need a name tag when he shows up to work on Monday, but Washington’s new quarterback might need his new teammates to wear them as he meets most of them for the first time.
Be myself, get to know my teammates, get familiar with the offense, Smith said, via Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post. You’re trying to lay a foundation to head into training camp with, not only with the offense, but certainly with the guys. Especially with the skill guys. This is the time to take advantage of that. We don’t have pads on. We can do the most this time of year. We can take advantage of these days more than some of the big fellas.
Washington obtained Smith in a trade with the Chiefs for cornerback Kendall Fuller and a third-round pick. He signed a four-year, $94 million extension.
Since then, Smith has watched game film of Jay Gruden’s offense to try to digest it. NFL rules restrict what he has been allowed to do and prohibits contact with coaches. That changes Monday.
