Playing without injured All-Star center Joel Embiid for the 10th straight game, the Sixers almost pulled off an epic comeback and rallied from 16 down to just two points late in the fourth. "He wants to play in front of the fans, and he wants to see this through", Brown said, via ESPN.com. They won 16 straight to end the regular season and the first game of the playoffs.

Embiid's facial injury doesn't affect his mobility on the floor.
He remains doubtful for Game 3 tonight and is very unlikely the Sixers will clear him for action unless they are 100 percent sure his health isn't at risk. Now that's not to say the Sixers are better without Embiid (they aren't) but the team has shown they are capable of winning without him.
Wednesday will be the three-week mark, and it's unclear if Embiid is any closer to returning.
"He went through stuff yesterday that was decent", Brett Brown said during this morning's shootaround. I wish more than anything that I was out there. He's their best player and is considered a Defensive Player of The Year candidate this season, but Game 1 proved that the 76ers can handle their business without him. "I just want the green light to play". Meanwhile, James Johnson added 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists on a ideal 7-of-7 shooting.
"This is more like it to be going back home 1-1", Wade said.
Game Three of the series is in Miami on Thursday, although the 76ers have yet to revealEmbiid's status for the contest.
