The Sixers were in red-hot form in the build-up to the contest with their crushing 130-103 Game 1 win over the Heat last week making it 17 consecutive wins for head coach Brett Brown's side. Miami outscored Philadelphia 34-13 in the second quarter and held the Sixers to 4 of 21 shooting in the period and 2 of 18 shooting from three-point range for the half.

After the game, Whiteside said he had faith in the coaching staff, but there have been trust issues between him and Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra for some time now.

After trailing by as many as 16 points in the third quarter the Sixers got back to within two points, but according to Ben Simmons, they needed to get back into the game much earlier. However, crucial misses eventually led to Wade burying multiple buckets to seal the game late on.

The team's came victory came without the services of All-Star C Joel Embiid, who sat out while recovering from an orbital bone fracture.

After Monday's game, Embiid took to Instagram to vent his frustrations, writing, "F--ing sick and exhausted of being babied".

There are still a few medical hurdles for Embiid to clear as he returns from surgery, sources told ESPN. "He [Embiid] just wants to play basketball, he wants to be with his team, he wants to play in front of the fans and he wants to see this through".

"When he's not able to do that he gets frustrated and I respect his frustration". "It's born out of competitiveness and it's born out of him wanting to be with his team", he said.

Simmons led the Sixers with 24 points and Saric had 23. He has been fitted for a mask and before Game 2 did an on-court workout that had fans reacting to his shots.
