Sixers fall to Heat at home, series even at 1-1

Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid took to social media to voice his frustration at being left on the sidelines for his team's Eastern Conference first round Game Two playoff loss to the Miami Heat on Monday.

Philadelphia ranked 10th in the league in 3-point percentage during the season, converting at a 36.9 per cent clip, and they shot 39.5 per cent during their 17-game winning streak. 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".

The No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft averaged 22.9 points, 11 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 blocks per game this season. He wants to see this through. As a result, Miami clamped down in Game 2 and the Sixers were never able to get into a flow offensively, as evidenced by their shooting from long distance. With the people that did the operation, the doctors, with our medical staff, with the team, with me, the coaching staff.

In 1973, another brawl ensued when Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk was bowled over at the plate by Yankees catcher Thurman Munson. On Thursday Major League Baseball handed Kelly a six-game suspension after ruling he had intentionally hit Austin .

I can understand him feeling that way. It is completely driven out of team, competitiveness. He wants to play in front of the fans.

I do know the spirit at which he delivers that (Instagram post) reflects my conversations with him."When Embiid suffered the injury on March 28, intial reports suggested he'd be out 2-4 weeks". "I wish more than anything that I was out there".

"When I came back in, it was just to calm everything down, and make the right play".
