Redick, Simmons star as 76ers take 3-1 series lead

NBA All Star Game 2014

The Philadelphia 76ers have an opportunity to advance to the second round of the playoffs on Monday night when they entertain the Miami Heat for game four of their first-round series.

"If somebody is going to push my teammate, I'll be there for them", Simmons said.

The skirmish began when Covington delivered a hard hit on Heat guard Goran Dragic. "They have an edge to them, and I think this series has given everybody a little more edge as well because of the physicality of the series".

Also, Jimmy Butler scored 28 points and Karl-Anthony Towns finished with 18 points and 16 rebounds as the Minnesota Timberwolves toppled the Houston Rockets 121-105 in game three for their first playoff win in 14 years. I think, vice versa it's the same thing with everybody on the Miami Heat.

"I want to be the greatest to play the game", he told NBC. They certainly showed as much in the past two games, winning both contests in Miami against a physical and scrappy Heat team that has done everything in its power to take the Sixers out of their comfort zone.

The Sixers outscored the Heat 23-22 in the third stanza, getting six points apiece from Simmons and Ersan Ilyasova.

The first adjustment that the Miami Heat need to make is to slow down the Sixers' offense in the fourth quarter.

Patriots: Rob Gronkowski tight-lipped about return
On Saturday, however, Gronk returned to Gillette Stadium for a freaky press conference before a Monster Energy Supercross event. Brady hasn't said whether he will play in a 19th season, while Gronkowski has been just as quiet about his plans.

Then things started to unravel for the Heat. In the fourth quarter this year, the Heat shot 40.7 percent from the field, which is second to last amongst all National Basketball Association teams. After Wade's layup cut the Sixers lead to 100-99, Simmons answered with a ferocious driving dunk. He ratcheted up the defense, allowing Sixers shooters no space, and fouled frequently to slow the pace of the game and take the flow from a transitional pace to a begrudging half-court game, which heavily favors Miami. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 38.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74.5 percent from the free throw line.

Simmons is the first rookie since Magic Johnson in 1980 to post a triple-double in the playoffs, with 17 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists.

The emotions of this series boiled over late in the second quarter when the two teams got into a scuffle after a wild sequence.

Redick led the way with 24 points while Ilyasova and Belinelli had 10 points each. Game three on Thursday marked the return of Joel Embiid, who missed more than a month due to a facial injury.

Wade led Miami with 25 points off of the bench. "I got hit a couple of times on plays".

PELICANS 131, TRAIL BLAZERS 123NEW ORLEANS - Anthony Davis scored 33 of his franchise playoff-record 47 points in the second half, and the Pelicans completed a first-round playoff sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers. "We have to play, and take care of what we have to take care of". "So I had to work through it, and I did, and we got a pretty good win". "And there was a real confidence the way he played to make those shots". I thought that, defensively, in the first three periods, we were a C-minus.
