Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat Live
Given the fact that the Sixers started the season with 13 losses in the first 15 games, Philly’s seventh place finish down the line was certainly a positive surprise for basketball fans in Pennsylvania. Entering their first round matchup without any pressure, Andre Iguodala and the Philadelphia 76ers will try to give the Miami Heat a run for their money at American Airlines Arena on Monday at 11 p.m. GMT.
While some experts thought that the trio of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh could dominate the NBA right from the start, things were not always going smoothly for the Heat in 2010-11. More specifically, Miami experienced several slumps but ultimately pulled its act together to finish the regular season with a 58-24 record and the second playoff seed in the Eastern Conference. Especially the acquisition of point guard Mike Bibby helped the Heat to perform more consistently and not rely entirely on Wade and James to carry the team all night long. Considering how well Miami has been playing at both ends of the floor over the past few weeks, anything else than victory over the Sixers would be a huge surprise on Monday.
