The Philadelphia 76ers lost much more than a 17-game winning streak Monday.
In a testament to the suddenness of the NBA playoffs, Philadelphia watched the streak and home-court advantage in its series vanish when the Miami Heat left Wells Fargo Center with a 113-103 victory in Game 2.
Dwyane Wade dialed back the clock with 28 points, Goran Dragic added 20 and Miami’s defense prevented a 76ers team coming off a 130-point performance from establishing the same type of consistent offensive rhythm.
The 76ers still trimmed a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter to just two behind an impressive stretch from the Ben Simmons and Dario Saric combination, but Wade tallied a steal, dunk, assist and critical offensive rebound in a quick burst to keep the home team at bay and prove there is still something in the tank for the future Hall of Famer.
