NBA: Philadelphia equalizes

Published

Carried by a James Harden author of 31 points, the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Miami Heat 116-106 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals and come back to 2-2 in the series.

As in the West, the first of the regular season in the East is also held in check in its semi-final! Like Phoenix against Dallas, Miami is indeed 2-2 in its series against Philadelphia, after Game 4 which took place Sunday in Pennsylvania. The 76ers won 116-108 at the Wells Fargo Center in front of 21,194 fans and are therefore clinging to their Finals dream. Overall disappointing since the start of the play-offs (18.6pts average) and author of 0 points in the first quarter, James Harden then delivered an excellent performance, with 31 points (6/10 to 3pts, including a few “step- decisive backs” of which he has the secret), 7 rebounds and 9 assists on the clock. The former MVP carried his team to victory in this game where the 76ers took control in the middle of the second quarter and did not let go, their lead fluctuating between 2 and 14 points.

Butler a bit alone for the Heat

Joel Embiid, still masked, was no exception, with 24 points and 11 rebounds. And it needed a “The Mask – The Beard” duo at the top, because opposite, Jimmy Butler carried the Heat on his shoulders, with 40 points and 6 assists. Kyle Lowry, absent in the first three games, scored only 6 points in 30 minutes (0/6 to 3pts), and is not sure to play the next game due to thigh pain. More generally, the Floridians were not having a great day at 3-point shooting, with only 20% success (7/35), and they never really worried Doc Rivers’ men. So far, no team has won away from home in this series. Will this still be the case on Tuesday during Match 5? Miami hopes so…
