For the second straight game to kick off the 2011 NBA playoffs the low seeded team nearly got a huge upset over a top team. The Philadelphia 76ers had a huge lead in the 1st, but they just fell victim to a more experienced squad in the Miami Heat. They were down big in the 4th, but give them credit, they cut it to 3 with a chance to tie, but just had one too many missed opportunities and it cost them. Either way the Miami Heat got a wake up call here that they better show up in this series.
Good game for ABC here. What a playoffs this has already been so far.
