Dario Saric finished with 21 points on 4-for-7 shooting from three-point range while Marco Belinelli was 7-for-13 overall and 4-for-8 from downtown for 21 points. San Antonio assistant Ettore Messina coached the team in Popovich's place. "You could see the passion he was playing with on the floor".

LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 18 points while 35-year-old Tony Parker delivered 16 points in a throw-back performance.

Thursday began with the 76ers saying Embiid wasn't likely to play.

San Antonio did not air a video tribute or hold a moment of silence for Erin in an apparent attempt to make the game as routine as possible for its players, but that was impossible.

After leading the Philadelphia 76ers to an impressive Game 3 victory Thursday night at AmericanAirlines Arena in his first game back from an orbital bone fracture that cost him 10 games including the first two in this first round playoff series, the 7-foot, 250-pound All-Star center expressed his frustration with how Game 2 ended in Philadelphia.

"(Bleeping) sick and exhausted of being babied", the centre, sidelined since March 28 due to a broken orbital bone and a concussion, said.

The rivalry between the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid seems to grow with every passing matchup.

Game four will be in Miami on Sunday morning. Aside from an outlying quarter here and there, the Sixers and Miami have played each other relatively even.

The Warriors have yet to announce the severity of Durant's ankle injury. He had to get a doctor's clearance from the team and league approval for the mask and goggle combination that sometimes slipped off his face.

Having finally made his return, head coach Brett Brown was proud of Embiid's comeback, especially given the circumstances of the Cameroonian's first-ever playoff game.

During their current series against the Philadelphia 76ers, Miami has averaged 3.3 post-ups per game.

Although the long arms of Justise Winslow was terrific with 19 points and 10 rebounds, Miami could do little to arrest Philly's fourth-quarter jailbreak, a crippling 32-14 run.

Embiid made his playoff debut on Thursday night and put on quite a show, finishing the game with 23 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and three blocks.

"I never thought I'd score 30 or something like that", Mirotic said. "I want to get more minutes out there". "I was lucky that the shots were falling for me".

The 76ers again pushed to a double-digit lead, with a pair of Richardson 3-pointers keeping the Heat within striking distance before an Embiid 3-pointer put the 76ers up 117-105 with 4:39 to play.

For the franchise's top paid player, who also led the National Basketball Association in rebounds during the regular season, to be sidelined for huge portions of games is odd.
