MIAMI (AP) – The Philadelphia 76ers will be loose and relaxed when they come to Miami for Game 5 of an Eastern Conference first-round series against the Heat on Wednesday night.
The Heat say that’s not a surprise. Dwyane Wade says that’s the way the seventh-seeded Sixers have been throughout the series.
Still, there is an added sense of urgency for Miami right now. One chance to advance slipped away on Sunday in a Game 4 loss at Philly, and Miami’s next opportunity comes Wednesday. If the Heat win, it’ll be time to start looking ahead to the Boston Celtics in the East semifinals.
Until then, the Heat insist, Philadelphia is all that matters.
