Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra looks forward to the return of point guard Goran Dragic (14.3) points per game who been out since December with a knee injury. There’s good news to report; he along with posy player Derrick Jones Jr (7.4) ppg practiced Wednesday before the team boarded their flight to Philadelphia.
However, both players will be listed as questionable for Thursday’s contest. Miami just signed rookie power forward Emanuel Terry (4.5) ppg to a 10-day contract who’s only experienced was a two-game stretch with the Phoenix Suns before he got sent to the developmental league.
The organization has been raving about the play of Justin Winslow with his ability to distribute the ball, which brings another element while he’s also gaining confidence in his shot which is up from to (11.3) from (7.2) per game a year ago. Miami averages (105.0) ppg, 27th league-wide while their third-ranked scoring defense allows opponents (105.5) ppg.
Spoelstra understands the talent level Philadelphia puts on the floor, and it’s going to take a superior performance to get the road victory.

Point Spread bettors from coast to coast are already moving against Philadelphia since new that All-Star center Joel Embiid won’t play Thursday due to a knee injury.
The organization released a statement that’s it’s just a precaution after the 24-year-old center experienced soreness after the 2019 All-Star game. Head Coach Brett Brown still has plenty of talent at his disposal with Ben Simmons (16.8 ppg, 7.9 assists, and 9.0 rebounds) along with Jimmy Butler (19.3) ppg. More of a concern than anything is making sure Tobia Harris and Boban Marjanovic fit into the rotation. Both players were acquired at the trade deadline to bolster the 76ers chance of getting to the 2019 NBA finals. Neither looked confident in the new system against Boston, but it’s still early, and they’ll get another shot against Brad Steven team.
Philadelphia third-ranked scoring offense put up (115.9) ppg on (47.5%) shooting from the field. However, the (112.1) ppg they allow opponents must come down if they’re going to make a run at the 2019 NBA title. That’s why they brought in Butler who has a reputation of being a defensive stopper with a tough mindset which they’ll need in the playoffs.
