On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, as part of the NBA play-offs, the Miami Heat and the Phoenix Suns won their second consecutive game in their series, against the Philadelphia 76ers (119-103) and the Dallas Mavericks (129 -109).
Miami makes the break. On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, as part of the NBA play-offs, Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals, the Miami Heat quietly beat the Philadelphia 76ers (119-103), deprived of Joel Embiid , to stand out in this series (2-0). It was at the start of the second quarter that Miami then really took off, at the level of the scoreboard, after a more balanced start to the game. Little by little, the gap increased until it reached +16. To build this second consecutive victory, Miami relied on a duo made up of Bam Adebayo (23 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists) and Jimmy Butler (22 points, 6 rebounds, 12 assists). Opposite, Tyrese Maxey may have finished top scorer in his franchise, but also top scorer of this meeting, with personal statistics of 34 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist, so it was not enough.
Did what we were supposed to do ☑️

Phoenix sickened Dallas
Phoenix has again made its law. On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, as part of the NBA play-offs, Game 2 of the Western Conference semi-finals, the Suns largely beat the Dallas Mavericks (129-109) to make the break in this series (2-0). However, during the first three periods, the two franchises went blow for blow. Dallas was even ahead for much of the second quarter, without really being out of the game the rest of the time. Everything was obviously played in the fourth and last quarter. For a few minutes, Chris Paul (28 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists) really came into action, alongside Devin Booker (30 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists). Opposite, despite the new big game of Luka Doncic (35 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists), the Mavs now find themselves more than ever at the foot of the wall.
