Article Summary:

Philly played some sharp defense, Joel Embiid had no trouble putting up 25 points with 13 rebounds and six assists, and Tyrese Maxey had one of the best shooting nights of his young career with 23 points and 5-of-7 shooting from three to help lead the way. Along with Kyle Lowry’s excellent play, whether he’s been operating in a more complementary role next to his co-stars or leading the team without Butler and Bam, the Heat have impressed. While Lowry’s shooting percentages haven’t exactly been off the charts at only 32.6 percent from three, he’s helped keep the offense humming with his range and shooting off the bounce, pick-and-roll craft, excellent passing, and quick improvisational reads when he’s moving around with or without the ball. As Lowry bombs away from deep off ball screens and off the catch, and wisely shifts around to relocate into space without the ball, Maxey will have to be alert and active to him in check.
