Dwyane Wade on his throwback performance: 'Thank Kevin Hart for that'

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown left talks things over with Markelle Fultz right during the first half in Game 1 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series against the Miami Heat Saturday Dwyane Wade on his throwback performance: 'Thank Kevin Hart for that'

Finishing with 28 points and seven rebounds on 11-of-16 shooting, Wade nearly single-handedly willed the Miami Heat to a surprising 113-103 win over the Philadelphia 76ers to even up their first-round playoff series at 1-1 and steal home-court advantage from the Sixers in the process.

"Joel is a superstar".

It was a superb display from Wade, a three-time National Basketball Association champion who started this season with Cleveland before re-joining Miami in February before the trade deadline.

"He's a competitor and wants to play".

"I play the game for these moments", Wade said. McConnell get minutes in the second half and not Markelle Fultz? "It causes foul trouble for them because he gets their bigs or whoever's guarding him in foul trouble, which gets us early to the line". The Philadelphia 76ers couldn't handle the Heat, literally, as they dropped Game 2 at home, 113-103.

"When you look at those games when we won, we scored over 100 points", Ersan Ilyasova said. "And when he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated, and we respect his frustration".

The 76ers were led by Ben Simmons' 24 points and Dario Saric's 23 points.

"I think Dwyane's steal changed the game", Brown said.

The Sixers lost for the first time since March 13 to Indiana.

Wade's experience proved crucial throughout, inspiring a first-half fightback to wipe out the 76ers' early lead before shepherding Miami to the win in a nervy finale.

Embiid is being managed carefully after requiring surgery on a fractured orbital bone at the end of last month and remained inactive last night as Miami levelled up the series at 1-1.

"He was a graceful man".

Union's tweet came just after one in which she took issue with the notion that Wade's performance, in which he led all scorers with 28 points on 11-of-16 shooting, while adding seven rebounds, three assists and some key defensive plays, was all the more impressive because of his age.

Embiid averaged 22.9 points while grabbing 11 boards and nearly two blocks per game, showing his importance on both ends of the floor for a relatively inexperienced Philadelphia team. Totals 40-96 16-22 103.

He came back late in the second to score the Heat's final six points of the half and build that lead to 14. Miami was smart about who to stick with and not let Simmons find.
