Wade looked fantastic in Monday's Game 2 victory over the Sixers, finishing with 28 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Will Joel Embiid be back on the court?

In fact, Hart's trash talk was so robust that Dwyane Wade gave him a death stare to end all death stares after nailing the dagger that sealed the game for Miami.

This snapped Philly's 17-game winning streak and was the first time they struggled without their All-Star.

Mourinho hits out at inconsistent and "complicated" United
After a mixed first season in England, Guardiola faced questions about whether his methods were a good fit for the Premier League. That didn't make me feel super happy and, in my opinion, it affected some of the people that were too happy.

Never was that more evident than Monday, when he scored 28 points in 26 minutes off the bench, providing the steady hand that helped the young Heat even their first-round series with Philadelphia. He took to Instagram after the game, apparently after feeling like he could have played. Following the loss, Sixers big man Joel Embiid took to Instagram to display his displeasure with not being able to play, saying he was sick and exhausted of being "babied". But as you'll see here, he did more than just score the basketball.

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne asked Wade after the game what inspired his performance.

"I promised the city the playoffs and I'm not on the court and I may not be on Thursday either", Embiid said.

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said he understood Embiid's frustration at being forced to watch from the sidelines, while acknowledging that the reaction was only natural. "When he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated". "It's born out of competitiveness, and it's born out of him wanting to be with his team".
