Miami Heat vs. Philadelphia 76ers: How to watch, TV channel, streaming, start time, injury report and stats

Last season's Eastern Conference champions, the Miami Heat, face off against the Philadelphia 76ers and reigning league MVP Joel Embiid in the Play-In Tournament.

The Sixers lost Embiid for most of the second half of the season with a knee injury, going 16-27 in his absence and dropping into the Play-In spots.

The Heat have been on the border of the playoff for most of the season. They are strong defensively but struggle to put the ball in the basket efficiently despite playing with the second-slowest pace in the NBA.
