76ers - Heat Preview

By TIM REYNOLDS
Posted Apr 26 2011 1:48PM
MIAMI (AP) By the time the ball goes up in Game 5 on Wednesday night, more than 72 hours will have passed since Philadelphia rallied in the final moments to beat Miami and save its season.

The wait seems much longer to the Heat.

"It's horrible, honestly," Heat forward LeBron James said.

Miami gets its second chance to move into the second round on Wednesday night, when it brings a 3-1 series lead over the 76ers back home. The Heat were outscored 10-0 in the final 82 seconds of Sunday afternoon's Game 4 at Philadelphia, and from that outcome came two predictable mindsets.

The 76ers say they're loose, playing with nothing to lose.

The Heat say they're focused, eager to send Philly home.

"That's they way they should play," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "The way we should play is with a deep sense of urgency and desperation. We had that for the most part in the first three games. We had a sensational second quarter in Game 4. ... But that wasn't enough of a burst. We weren't able to sustain it and we relaxed."

Should Miami win on Wednesday, the Heat will immediately turn attention toward the long-awaited matchup with the Boston Celtics in the East semifinals.

The Heat know the Celtics are waiting. Until win No. 4 against Philadelphia is in the books, they won't profess to care.

"We're talking about Philly right now," Heat guard Dwyane Wade said.

Some Philadelphia veterans, Elton Brand in particular, said before the series began that the Sixers' collective youth would prove beneficial at times in this series. In short, Philly's younger starters - three of the 76ers' first five had never started a playoff game before this series began - are still learning the magnitude of the playoff stage.

That's not a bad thing, Brand said. It allows them to just play, even when facing a six-point deficit near the very end of a win-or-get-swept game like the one Philadelphia faced Sunday.

"It was easy for us when we were down seven with 8 minutes to go for guys to pack it in and get ready for that vacation," Sixers guard Lou Williams said. "Instead, guys locked down on defense and made some big shots."

So instead of flying to Miami for vacation, the Sixers are returning for Game 5.

"They wanted to get down there," 76ers coach Doug Collins said. "And guys are loose. They're having fun. It's just a great time to be playing. Anytime you have the chance to play these kind of games, it helps them grow. I'm learning more about them every single day."

Collins brought his team in for a light Monday workout, before another practice Tuesday preceding the flight to Miami. The Monday session might have been one of the most lighthearted of Philadelphia's season, but Collins felt it was necessary to get his players back in the workplace - if for no other reason than to put the joy of Sunday behind them.

"I didn't want them to think that was good enough," Collins said. "I want them to want more."

The message was delivered.

"We're not happy," Williams said. "We have the opportunity to go down there, try to extend the series and make it 3-2. At the end of the day, all you can ask for."

Miami took Monday off from practice, then returned for a lengthy session Tuesday morning, replete with full contact 5-on-5 work, knee pads and mouthguards in place.

That's what worked best for the Heat all season, and Spoelstra sees no need to change the thinking now.

"We needed to work on some things and get our edge back," Spoelstra said.

Also not getting changed? Miami's lineup.

The Heat have been outscored 78-46 with their starters on the floor to open games in this series, then have outplayed the 76ers by wide margins at times after those initial stints of games.

"We can change what we need to within ourselves and do it with a better motor ... better awareness to start the game," Spoelstra said. "It's all about everybody together."

And together, Miami has grown tired of waiting around for Game 5 to arrive.

James was watching other playoff games on television Monday night, noting that most of those series only have one full day off until their next game. The Heat had two full days off - more than three in actuality - to stew over what went wrong in Philadelphia in Game 4.

"When you're a competitor and you just love the game of basketball, you love playoff basketball, you're ready to get back out there after one day off," James said. "But like D-Wade said, we got an opportunity to get some rest, go through the mistakes and some of the good things we did in Game 4. And we're looking forward to the challenge."

Philadelphia wins this one and the next two, which sets off a series of remarkable events.

(a) Spoelstra gets summarily **** canned
(b) Bosh is traded for Dwight Howard.
(c) Chris Paul signs for the MLE as part of a wink-wink deal.
(d) Miami recovers from a devastating first-round exit in 2011 by . . . TBA.

Miami will win tomorrow and it shouldn't be a close one. Maybe in the 1st quarter and after that I expect Wade & LeBron to just flat out dominate.

Classic Bulls fan response... always finding a way to rag on Lebron.

On topic, the Heat win this one and it's not close. I predicted they'd probably lose game 4, just due to a lack of effort. It's the same reasons the Bulls lost game 4, simply because they knew they could and it wouldn't effect them. I see the Heat going back home and closing it out in a reasonable fashion.

HEAT win.

Philly has a lot of young players that im very impressed with they have a nice young core to build upon. They need to trade AI though. Jrue Holliday is a star in the making he has hit big shots all series long.

As a Sixers fan I hope they pull off a miracle but this most likely ends tonight. With that said, the single best scenario for the Heat is anyone on the Heat roster hits a buzzer beater to get that monkey off there backs.

Lets take a look back from earlier in the season ...

The Sixers and the Heat both started the season off on losing stretches . The heat didn't have all the hype that people thought they would have . The sixers started out 3-13 and at the time they were the second worst team in the NBA .
However , after that Philly turned it around and had one of the best stretches in the league . They lost a few , but they most certainly turned it around . The heat have been inconsistent all season , they're season was expected to be in the high 60's or low 70's in the win category . A win like this , benefits the Sixers because it gives the young players the confidence they need . I'm not saying they're going to win this series , but they can certainly give the heat a run for their money . I actually believe if the sixers didn't start 3-13 they probably would've been 4th or 5th seed .

unfortunately it doesnt work that way. you cant just take out 20% of the season and say without it we would have done so and so.

the sixers wont win based on what they do tonight, it will depend on how the heat play. if they come out with energy and play defense like they are capable, it is over.

the reason why the west teams are struggling in the first round and the east teams aren't is b/c the west teams lower seeds are good, and the east teams are not (some even under .500)

Hm, why didn't Doug Collins say if they win this game they will win the series?

Doug is a realist.

He said before game 3 that if Miami plays their best, Sixers cannot beat them.

This is very true. Lot's of people criticized Doug for "showing weakness" but he was just keepin it real. Miami has 2 of the top 3 players in the NBA IMO and Chris Bosh ain't no slouch either.

Sixers have a bunch of really young players, most of whom are playing their first playoff baksetball. We are outmatched and we have to play perfect to even compete because we don't have any defensive presence inside. It's a huge weakness and it pretty much settled the series before it even started.

If we had a say, Dwight Howard, then we could compete. But we don't, we have spencer hawes who is a disgrace of a basketball player. The things he does well are the things you don't want your 7 footer to be doing.

Does the fanboy in me still hold out hope that the Sixers make history and come back to beat Miami in one of the biggest upsets in NBA history? Absolutely. But will I let that get in the way of reality? no

Neither team is playing great, Philly should be ashamed at the amount of layups missed in this series. Miami's D and the 3 point shooting is keeping them in it as their overall shooting has struggled, but they're still outrebounding Philly comfortably.
