When the Philadelphia 76ers lost Game 2 of the National Basketball Association (NBA) first-round play-off series against the Miami Heat on Monday, Joel Embiid took to Instagram to post a profane message.
Prior to Thursday night's Game 3 tilt, the Sixers hadn't won a game in Miami since 2014.
Embiid, who is out with an orbital fracture, was frustrated by being kept out of the Sixers' lineup again, and a serious question remains if he will be able to play in Game 3. At the half, however, Miami held a one-point lead.
Embiid has missed the last 10 games while recovering from a concussion and surgery to fix a fractured orbital bone around his left eye. It was his first playoff game. I like that. I felt like it was time to go to work, I was lucky the shots were falling, the threes, and on the defensive end I think I got a block too. "Not only was he injured, but he had to play in a playoff game on the road in a mask". And it's not like there's a clear vision line out of the mask, it has a protective lens in there as well.

Goran Dragic led the Heat with 23 points and eight assists.
"I think it's still going to be annoying [in Game 4 on Saturday]", said Embiid.
Spurs star Manu Ginobili says the team is "devastated, we are all hurting". We are not here to make friends.
EMBIID: Justin was kind of hyping me up on the bench, he was talking about [how] I'm one of the best players in the league and that I gotta take over, and that I gotta bring back the win.
Potential Liverpool lineup against West Bromwich Albion
West Brom have been without Nacer Chadli Jonny Evans and Hal Robson-Kanu but theyre exlected to return against Liverpool . The Baggies are now nine points behind 17th placed Swansea City, who also have a game in hand on the bottom-placed side.
After going through warmups, all parties involved felt comfortable enough to proceed, and Embiid was slotted into the starting lineup for his first National Basketball Association action since March 28. Just having Embiid on the court affected how Miami played both offensively and defensively.
Embiid then took over with a bank shot from the top of the key and a trey for a 117-105 advantage with 4:25 left. "I was on the sideline, really mad", Embiid said.
When asked about Winslow's little stunt after the game, the never-bashful Embiid hinted there could be payback to come.
So, Simmons and Sixers shooting coach John Townsend (pictured below, left) made a decision to "get ahead of the story", to borrow an oft-used Brown phrase. "At the same time, Ben is still doing what he's doing". But the 76ers never looked back. "It changes things, for sure". The cheering was almost constant as the Spurs scored the game's first six points before the Warriors began to settle in. Philadelphia came out on top, 128-108. Josh Richardson scored 14 points, James Johnson contributed 12 and Tyler Johnson had 10. Aside from an outlying quarter here and there, the Sixers and Miami have played each other relatively even.
