76ers (2-1) at Miami Heat (1-2)

Saturday at 2:30 p.m., at AmericanAirlines Arena

Talking points

A victory would give the Sixers a two-game advantage in the best of seven series. It would also put them in position to clinch the series on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. … Miami center Hassan Whiteside has underachieved, thus far. As a result, Joel Embiid is expected to have another solid game in what will be his second one back after suffering a fractured orbital bone near his left eye.
