Analysis: The Sixers are the hottest team in basketball right now as they have won 16 streak games. Although Joel Embiid is out for Game 1 of this series and possibly longer, I don’t see the Heat keeping up with the Sixers. Ben Simmons is playing like a young LeBron James, and the rest of the team is playing well with him. The Heat have some talent, but aren’t fit to run with Philly. While I’m looking forward to Joel Embiid competing against Hassan Whiteside, there’s not much to analyze here. This will be over quickly.

Prediction: 76ers in 5
