As expected, the Philadelphia 76ers struggled in Game 1 against the Miami Heat without Joel Embiid manning the paint. Filling in was veteran center DeAndre Jordan but he was only able to contribute 4 points, two blocks and two rebounds in 17 minutes of playing time. Tobias Harris led the team in scoring with 27 points and six boards while Tyrese Maxey finished with 16 points, nine rebounds and five assists while shooting only 40% from the field. Much more was expected from James Harden who only chipped in with 16 points but was able to grab nine boards and dished out five assists.
