Miami Heat

Herro scores 25, Heat take Game 1 over 76ers 106-92

Herro scored 25 points - the second-most he'd ever had in a playoff game - while Bam Adebayo finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds, and the top-seeded Heat ran away in the second half to beat the fourth-seeded 76ers 106-92 in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal matchup.

Herro was 4 for 6 from 3-point range; everyone else in the game shot a combined 11 for 64 from deep.

The 76ers were without Joel Embiid, the MVP finalist who isn't even in Miami while recovering from an orbital fracture and concussion - injuries suffered in Philadelphia's first-round-clinching win at Toronto.

Miami came out as aggressive as could be, putting Tucker on Harden and having him guard him the entire 94 feet of the floor in a similar approach to what the Heat utilized against Atlanta's Trae Young in the first round series.
