“I think every team we play against is trying to send a message to us,” Harris said after the loss. Through the first 12 minutes of action, the Heat outscored the Sixers 38-22 and then followed up with a 22-19 second quarter allowing Miami to go into halftime up 19 points.
The Sixers didn’t call it an early night right away, but it didn’t take long before they started clearing the bench and accepting defeat on the first night of a back-to-back. “We will go into tomorrow’s game with that focus and that energy that we need, and we have to be better. We have to get better. And that’s always been our mentality, win or lose. What way can we get better?”
The Sixers are set to take on the Orlando Magic at home on Friday night.
