The No. 3 seed Philadelphia 76ers cruised to a win over the No. 6 Miami Heat, 130-103, on Saturday, April 14, in the opening day of the 2018 NBA Playoffs.

The 76ers and Heat are playing Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.

His 14 assists is the second-most in National Basketball Association history by a player making their playoff debut, trailing Magic Johnson's whopping tally of 16, recorded way back in 1980.

"We had one turnover in the entire second half and I give Ben Simmons a tremendous amount of credit", Brown told reporters.

Trailing 56-60 at halftime, they went on a 20-2 third-quarter run and launched a barrage of three-pointers in the final period to extinguish the Heat.

JJ Redick topped all players in scoring with 28 points, and was one of three Sixers to reach the 20-point plateau.

All-Star center Joel Embiid said Saturday he feels there's a "pretty good chance" he'll be cleared to return from an orbital bone fracture in either Game 2 or 3 against the Miami Heat, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Kelly Olynyk had 26 points to lead the Heat. Miami has come back to win eight of 19 previous playoff series in which has lost the first game.

The Spurs lacked the firepower to match the Warriors, with their All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard mysteriously refusing to play despite overcoming a quadriceps injury.

The Boomers star missed three of his five field goals for five points.

Curry is expected to sit out the Spurs' series as he overcomes a serious left knee sprain.

After grinding through a chippy, at times plodding, first half played primarily in the half court, the Sixers recaptured the form they routinely showed throughout their historic regular-season ending winning streak. Ersan Ilyasova added 17 points and 14 rebounds.
