Philadelphia: The battle to take down covid-19 has caused a lot of headaches and confusion around the NBA especially seeing games being postponed while the league is forcing certain teams to play with only seven players and that’s what we had on Tuesday night as the 76ers took on the Miami Heat from the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia.
The Sixers would take down the Miami Heat 137-134 in overtime and the story of this game was the performance by Joel Embiid
Late in the fourth quarter with the Sixers down 2, Embiid would tie the game with jump shot

In the overtime, Embiid would continue his amazing play with this ridiculous circus shot and was fouled in the process

Joel Embiid would make history in the game by becoming the first Sixers player with 45+ PTS, 15+ REB and 5+ STL since steals were first tracked in 1973-74!
What is next:
The Sixers will play this same Miami Heat team on Thursday night from Wells Fargo Center.
