76ers Look to Put the Finishing Touches on Heat at Home in Game 5

The Philadelphia 76ers have won 19 of their last 20 games and are only one triumph away from advancing to the Eastern Conference semifinals. Leading the series 3-1, Philly will look to knock the Miami Heat out of the first round in Game 5 on Tuesday. The Heat are trending OVER when playing away from home, as Miami has gone OVER the total in 10 of its past 14 road contests with an average combined score of 219.

Xbet opened the Heat as 10-point road underdogs with a total of 212.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the 76ers’ last 17 games in the playoffs at home.
  • The Heat are 8-1 ATS in their last nine games after consecutive ATS losses.
  • The 76ers are 7-0 SU in their last seven games as a double-digit favorite.

The Sixers weren’t playing their best basketball in Game 4, as Philly shot 7-for-31 from three-point range and committed 27 turnovers, but they did use a 19-2 run in the fourth quarter to take the lead and hold on for a 106-102 victory. The 76ers had seven players in double digits in Game 4 and were led by Ben Simmons, who recorded a triple-double with 17 points, 13 boards and 10 assists.

The Heat will be looking to become the 12th team in NBA history to rally from a 3-1 deficit in a best-of-seven series, and closing out games properly is going to be imperative if they want to accomplish the feat. Miami was outscored 27-19 in the fourth quarter in Game 4 and went 13-for-25 from the free-throw line in the setback. Dwyane Wade has been a bright spot, however, as the veteran is averaging 18 points in the series and scored a team-high 25 on Sunday.

The 76ers have clearly enjoyed playing at Wells Fargo Center in recent months. Philadelphia has gone 22-2 SU and 18-6 ATS in its past 24 home games.
