The Miami Heat will be looking to put the Philadelphia 76ers in a three-game hole in Game 3 of their NBA playoff series.

Another heavy defeat was the story of a Sixers team struggling without star centre Joel Embiid who continues recovering from a concussion and a right eye orbital fracture.

With the series headed to the Wells Fargo Center in Philly, the Sixers face a must-win situation. 

There are still murmurings that Embiid could line up for game three, but he must clear concussion protocols and tick a handful of boxes to prove himself fit. 

If not, the aces are held by Miami. 

The Heat have dismantled Philly throughout the opening two contests as their offence fires on all cylinders. 

Miami could potentially sweep the series. It could put itself in a great position to face whoever survives the manic semifinals scrap between the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Again, if Embiid does not play, Miami should cover the spread. 

Suggested Bet: Miami -2.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Miami -2.5
Leg 2: Total points under 209.5
Leg 3: J. Butler over 20.5
Combined odds = $5.50

Dallas welcomes Phoenix to American Airlines Center on Saturday morning as it bids to wrestle back a 2-0 lead in favour of visitors.

The Suns had no real qualms holding onto their first two home games of the series, and Devin Booker has shown no signs of the hamstring niggle he brought into the playoffs. 

Booker and Chris Paul combined for 58 points, 12 assists and ten rebounds in another Suns’ runaway victory during game two.

Incredibly, the Suns set a franchise playoffs record by going 64.5% from the field. 

Dallas has had no answers for the Sun’s deadly duo, and even Paul and Booker are down, up steps big centre DeAndre Ayton. 

Luka Doncic has taken his hand as the scorer rather than the distributor during this series, and it has been to no avail.

They have tried to win with Doncic as the all-everything on offence, but that approach has failed miserably, despite Doncic’s successes.

Phoenix to make it 3-0.

Suggested Bet: Phoenix Suns head to head at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Phoenix head to head 
Leg 2: L. Doncic over 32.5
Leg 3: Total points scored under 209.5
Combined odds = $7.50
