Ben Simmons posts historic triple-double in Sixers' win over Heat

Embiid remains doubtful Fultz draws into rotation for Game 3

Simmons scored 17 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and passed off 10 assists while J.J. Redick had 24 points to lead seven double-digit scorers for the Sixers, who seized a 3-1 edge over the Heat in their best-of-seven opening round series.

After lighting the Heat up with 18 three-pointers in its Game 3 win, Philadelphia was only 7 of 31 from beyond the arc Saturday and turned it over 27 times.

Wade, the hero of the Heat's Game 2 victory with 28 points, scored 12 of his team-high 25 points in the fourth quarter on Saturday but it wasn't enough to overcome the Sixers' dominance on the glass or Miami's rough night at the foul line. With the Sixers clinging to a one-point lead and about a minute to play, Simmons found a seam in Miami's defense and stormed toward the hoop before flushing home a powerful dunk that put Philadelphia up 102-99 with 58.2 seconds left. The Heat have erased a 3-1 deficit only once, in 1997 against NY.

A wild scene was the story of the second quarter.

Saturday's game was physical from start to finish. Josh Richardson took the worst of it, getting slammed into by Embiid. "They made bigger plays than us in the fourth quarter".

Armstrong's denial influenced the USPS decision to continue sponsoring the team in 2000, the Justice Department said. The government had been seeking $100 million in a trial that was scheduled to begin in Washington on May 7.

IT'S getting hot in Miami. James Johnson immediately grabbed Covington and shoved him up against the padded stanchion under the basket. And now Tuesday awaits, with Philadelphia - coming off a Super Bowl title and Villanova's NCAA crown - on the brink of another celebration.

76ers: Embiid went out for a play in the fourth quarter without his mask, drawing a foul, then getting the mask back on.

Per ESPN Stats & Info, Philadelphia's 17 first-half turnovers marked its most in a game this season.

Miami led by 12 in the third, but ceded control in a hurry.

Heat: Richardson had a Heat playoff record seven steals.
