Predictions

The Miami Heat will enter this series as the overwhelming favourites, but will they be able to fend off the challenge of James Harden & co?

The Heat will be boosted by the return of Kyle Lowry, who looks set to return from injury ahead of Game 2 on Wednesday. The Miami guard missed Games 4 and 5 of the first-round victory over the Atlanta Hawks with a hamstring injury.

Philadelphia's hopes of qualifying for the Eastern Conference finals have been dealt a major blow following the news that All-Star centre Joel Embiid is out 'indefinitely' after sustaining a right orbital fracture in their Game 6 victory against the Toronto Raptors.

The Miami Heat have been the most consistent team in the East this season, and without Joel Embiid, we struggle to see any way in which the 76ers come out on top.
