The Philadelphia 76ers look to make it two consecutive wins against the Eastern Conference's elite when they host the Miami Heat tonight.
The 16-6 Philadelphia 76ers are two days removed from their biggest win of the season, a 16 point win over Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls. Tonight they look to follow up their blowout victory of the Bulls with another win against the Eastern Conference's elite, the Miami Heat.
The Heat own an identical 16-6 record and a 6-4 record on the road, where they'll be playing tonight, in the Wells Fargo Center. These two teams last played in Miami on January 21 with the Sixers losing by a final score of 113-92. The 21 point loss is, by far, the Sixers' worse loss of the season. These two teams also met last April in the Playoffs where the Sixers lost four of five to the eventual Eastern Conference champs.
Tip is at 7 Eastern.
