"I completely pay attention to that, and so should you all".

The Warriors have a 3-0 lead in their first-round series with the Spurs after Kevin Durant delivered 26 points, nine rebounds and six assists in a 110-97 win at San Antonio. But other than that, it's a lot different than the regular season.

Happy New Orleans fans will pack Smoothie King on Saturday for Game 4 at 2:00 PM PST in Louisiana. On the heels of his steady Game 3 showing, he's now a combined 18 for 24 the stripe versus Miami.

Embiid said he was cleared to play after a conversation with the team medical staff and surgeons. "I'm going to be a nightmare for them, too". "But when we lost, I was like, "No". This time around, they were 18-for-34 (52.9 percent) from downtown. Sixers coach Brett Brown thought the whole incident was amusing. In recent weeks, the duo began putting more and more manhours into the rookie's foul shooting. "His shot attempts are going to be there". That figure has jumped up to 7.6 in the Playoffs. "I'll spend some time working that out in the next day in a half". And the latter did it again on Thursday despite an off night from Wade. "It's playoffs", Brown said of Winslow.

Simmons' desire to proactively work on his free throws has simple, logical origins. The 36-year-old shot 2-of-10 and finished with eight points, five assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block, and four turnovers in 25 minutes. But Miami is in a hole now and the Sixers are only getting stronger.

The Sixers - Embiid, especially - have carried themselves with a bravado and confidence thie season.

It appears that Game 2 was an aberration to the rule for Philadelphia. Winslow scored 10 points in the first frame. He's also represented Croatia at the Olympics and in the EuroBasket tournament, respectively, the last two summers. His presence spells danger for the entire Eastern Conference.

Embiid, sidelined the previous 10 games with a facial fracture, sparked the 76ers with 23 points, going 10 of 15 from the line and contributing to the Heat's foul trouble.

Some basketball was played on occasion as well. He's not fazed by the moment. But anything can happen, they say, when you play a round ball.

Spoelstra has said several times during the series that it is his responsibility to get more from Whiteside, who signed a $98 million contract with the Heat after the 2015-16 season.

"It's part of the game".

Olynyk and Dwyane Wade are the only Heat players who have even made a post-up basket against Philadelphia. They've gotten the better of a well-coached, experienced squad.

"Definitely", said Ben Simmons. That's what we did, and my teammates did a great job of finding me. When he blocked me I didn't really see him. good for him. "We had a conversation and I'm glad they let me play".
