The Heat looked great in the first half against Philadelphia in Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Playoffs but it all went down hill from there and we got beat badly as a result.

The 76ers left many books exposed on Saturday though the action did tighten up later in the day.

Ben Simmons had 17 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds in his playoff debut, and the Sixers rolled to a 130-103 victory on Saturday night for their 17th straight win.

”I feel this group has something special in it,” coach Brett Brown said.

Led by four each from JJ Redick and Marco Belinelli, the 76ers hit a team playoff-record 18 3-pointers (on 28 attempts).

This represented our first loss in the NBA.

Current NBA Record: 5-1 (83%)

Current MLB Record: 5-4 (55.5%) 2-0 High Priced Picks

MLB Recap: No plays yesterday.

An Early Look at Public Favorites for Saturday: We were not seeing any major exposures early but that was likely to change as Sunday progresses.
