NBA fines 76ers $50,000 for failing to disclose Embiid’s status in “accurate &timely manner” prior to Game 3. (The 76ers’ mistake, in my view, was changing his status from out to doubtful all day Friday, instead of changing it from out to questionable, which would have been OK) – 7:01 PM

Pedestrian stat line for Joel Embiid, by his standards anyway: 18 points and 11 boards. That doesn’t matter, though. His presence alone made this a series and he did it with a broken face and busted thumb.

Bam Adebayo caught Joel Embiid in the face going for that rebound with his left arm. Embiid was down on the court for a moment, but got up and made both free throws. He has 18 and 11 in this game. Philly is up 17 with 2:47 to go. – 9:37 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Looks like Bam’s left arm got Embiid across the face going for the last rebound. Embiid looked like he was in a bit of pain afterwards, but got up and appears to be fine now. – 9:37 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
These fans obviously love Embiid, but I don’t think anything ignites this crowd like when Maxey gets going. – 9:36 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Tyrese Maxey drills another triple and Joel Embiid blocks Jimmy Butler. Yea, this one’s over. #Sixers9:36 PM

Brad Botkin @bradbotkincbs
I’m surprised Heat haven’t tried to get a spark out of some Bam/Duncan DHOs against Embiid drops – 9:31 PM

Malika Andrews @malika_andrews
A concussion, an orbital fracture, a ligament tear in his thumb… Joel Embiid is the definition of tough. This is remarkable. – 9:29 PM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Tyrese Maxey’s speed is such a problem for the Heat. After Tucker stole the ball from Harden, Tucker tried to find Herro in transition but Maxey zoomed in and stole it back. Results in an Embiid and-1 and the Sixers up 86-74. Could have been 83-76 with 4:31 left. – 9:28 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Adebayo played really well in the first two games of this series. With Embiid back on the floor, things have changed quickly — Bam is just 2-for-8 from the field and has only two rebounds in 30 minutes. – 9:23 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Embiid’s about to check back in with a little under 7 minutes left. – 9:22 PM

John Gonzalez @JohnGonzalez
Let Embiid speak in commercials – 9:17 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Doc clearly extended Embiid’s minutes because he wanted the Mud Man to play with all three of Maxey, Harden and Harris.
Maxey hits a 3 and the Sixers are up 10 now. – 9:15 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers are living in double drag, Thybulle (Herro) and Embiid screening for Harden. – 9:12 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
They’re going after Herro now, with him guarding Thybulle, getting him onto Harden and then running the PnR with Embiid – 9:10 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Worth noting: Embiid is starting the fourth quarter with Harden, Maxey, Milton and Niang. He’s played 31 minutes. – 9:07 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Embiid to start the fourth.
When Doc said a minute restriction was possible, I guess he meant it in the way that everything is possible. – 9:06 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Joel Embiid is headed to the court to start the 4th quarter, which is a big deviation from their typical rotations. Guess the plan is to play the whole 2nd half? – 9:06 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Joel Embiid is back on the court for the start of the fourth quarter. – 9:06 PM

Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
It’s about to be a very loud 12 minutes in South Philadelphia…
The @Philadelphia 76ers lead in Game 3, 68-65, headed to Q4.
Green: 18 PTS / 6-7 3fg
Embiid: 13 PTS / 10 REB
Harden: 15 PTS / 5 REB / 3 AST
Harris: 6 PTS / 9 REB / 6 AST – 9:05 PM

Dave Early @DavidEarly
Heat outscored the Sixers by only 4 in the third. But the way it played out, it felt like more. Harden has 4 fouls Embiid and Green have 3. Lowry has 3 for Mia.
Sixers hold by 3 with 12 to go. Fans may need to be the 6th man. – 9:05 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers 68, Heat 65 at the end of a seesaw third quarter. Both teams still struggling from the floor, especially Miami’s 6-of-22 mark from 3. Harden with 15 points (zero in the third) 5 rebounds and 3 assists. Embiid with 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting and 10 rebounds. – 9:05 PM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
The ever-looming question of Sixers basketball appears again — can the Sixers win the non-Embiid minutes to open the fourth? – 9:04 PM

Austin Krell @NBAKrell
The most important minutes of the whole season loom. Figure Embiid has to recharge to open the 4th quarter. – 9:04 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Maxey and Embiid messed up, Maxey iced it, Embiid not there, Herro bangs a 3 – 9:02 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
I put that Joel drive on Herro guarding Thybulle, he’s retreating to the opposite baseline, step up and help on the Embiid drive instead of just sticking to Thybulle for no reason. – 9:01 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Sixers trying to preswitch Thybulle onto the screen defender that time, Butler eventually got Embiid involved anyway. – 8:57 PM

John Schuhmann @johnschuhmann
Sixers get Butler switched onto Embiid. Tucker just plays a 1-man zone in the paint, leaving Harris alone. But Thybulle not spaced & pass isn’t there. pic.twitter.com/kc8jNhutTF8:54 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Embiid needs some water – 8:52 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Miami has a great opportunity here. Harden in foul trouble, Embiid trying to find his rhythm off the break. Philly wins this one, they’ll be much harder to beat in Game 4. – 8:48 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers gotta do a way better job of exploiting Embiid’s mismatch when Miami switches the pick-and-roll.
Harden holding the ball for forever and isolating against Bam Adebayo is bad offense. – 8:41 PM

Michael Pina @MichaelVPina
is it just me or does embiid not have the most faith in danny g – 8:37 PM

Dave Early @DavidEarly
Guessing Embiid is saying “dude slow down you had a layup on the left side take your time.” And Maxey is saying “I was going so fast to track it my momentum took me to a reverse.”
Shake was there to get a FT though. pic.twitter.com/Wz6phQ4oAq8:22 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Philadelphia stopped rebounding in that second quarter but they at least kept the defense up.
Embiid having his biggest struggle in the midrange (0/4) but so is Jimmy Butler (0/3 midrange FGs, 0/4 3s) – 8:22 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Halftime: 76ers 41, Heat 34.
Sixers scored four points over the final 6 minutes of the second quarter – all by Shake Milton – to allow Miami to stick around.
Joel Embiid missed all three shots he took in the second quarter. James Harden has 15 points, and Jimmy Butler has 10. – 8:21 PM

Greg Dickerson @gregdickerson13
Joel embiid is about to cement himself as a Philly legend…fractured eye, messed up thumb…damn he’s tough – 8:19 PM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
The good for the Heat
– Denying Embiid in the post
– Forcing turnovers
– OREBs generating extra possessions
The bad
– Rushing shots on offense
– 2 of 16 from 3
– Jimmy Butler looks like he has tired legs – 8:18 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Not exactly a work of art, but the Sixers lead 41-34 at the break.
End of the quarter offense has been rough: Super sloppy non-Embiid and Harden minutes to close the first, Shake Milton was the only guy to score in the last six minutes of the second. – 8:18 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Halftime: Sixers 41, Heat 34. Miami hanging in there despite shooting a woeful 33 percent from the floor. Sixers’ 10 turnovers and 34.3 percent shooting are no bueno. Harden with 15 points (8-of-8 FT). Embiid with 7 points on 2-of-7 and 7 rebounds. – 8:18 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
The Heat can’t find much offensive rhythm at all. Butler, Strus and Herro are a combined 8-for-28 from the field. Embiid’s presence has been felt on both ends — but having him back has created more space for Harden to operate. Miami can’t just focus on him like they had been. – 8:17 PM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Heat didn’t shy away from Embiid in the paint there. Got him and Harden involved in the PnR and Harden screwed up. Easy dunk for Jimmy Butler. – 8:09 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Want to see more of that Bam right there
Go at Embiid – 8:02 PM

Dave Early @DavidEarly
Joel Embiid makes his teammates so much better. Harden running p-n-r, better looks for Green. Stops and rebounds (!!!) that lead to early offense.
Oh and I haven’t seen DJ yet so safe to say he helps the coaches a ton too. – 8:00 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Really good stretch by the Sixers, who started the 2nd quarter on a 9-0 run with Embiid on the bench. Harden with 4 during this stretch, 2 for Harris and a corner 3 by Green, who is now 2-3 from deep for the game after going just 2-14 from 3 in the first two games of the series. – 7:56 PM

Austin Krell @NBAKrell
Think people are rushing to blame Doc for both Embiid and Harden being on the bench when the fact is that Harden picked up his 2nd foul late in 1Q. Picks up a 3rd in the first quarter and you’re in danger. – 7:49 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Sixers only up 21-17 after a tough end to the first quarter, helped from further damage by the fact that the Heat shot just 2-6 from the free-throw line. Harden has 9/3/2 and Embiid has 7/4.
Sixers made their first two 3s then missed their next four. – 7:48 PM

Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob
Philly with and without Embiid going exactly as you’d expect, Heat haven’t found a way to attack when he’s in the game. – 7:48 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers 21, Heat 17 at the end of the first. Heat shot 7-of-20 (started 3-of-15) and Sixers led by as many as 10, but seven turnovers have hurt them. Embiid with 7 points and 4 rebounds in 10 minutes. Harden with 9-3-2. – 7:47 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
End of first quarter: 76ers 21, Heat 17. James Harden and Joel Embiid have combined for 16 of Philadelphia’s 21 points. Heat shooting 36.8 percent from the field. – 7:46 PM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Heat get a dunk and a layup on two straight possessions immediately after Embiid checks out. – 7:46 PM

Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Heat – which has led every playoff game by at least 15 points and won 6 of them – finishes quarter strong and down 21-17 after one… Embiid, still listed as doubtful, plays the first 10 plus minutes of the game and has 7 points and 4 rebounds. – 7:46 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Embiid played the first 11 minutes of the game, before checking out for Paul Reed. 7 points and 4 rebounds on 2-for-4 shooting and 3-for-4 free throws so far for Embiid, who looked very comfortable after eight days off. – 7:45 PM

Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
Embiid heads to the bench after 10 minutes, with 7 points and 4 rebounds (2-4 fg/3-4 FT).
He’s replaced by Bball Paul. – 7:43 PM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Paul Reed is checking in for Joel Embiid, after nearly 11 minutes for his first shift – 7:43 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Paul Reed coming in for Embiid at the 1:34 mark of the first. He was huffing and puffing a bit when play was stopped a bit ago. – 7:43 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Paul Reed getting set to check in for Embiid. The big fella has 7 points and 4 rebounds in his initial run. #Sixers7:43 PM

Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
Joel Embiid is what Philadelphia would be if it were a person. – 7:42 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Every single time there is a stoppage in play, Joel Embiid is calling for a towel to dry off his face under his mask. – 7:41 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Joel Embiid is only 1-for-3, but he’s (unsurprisingly) immediately changed the dynamic of the series. After Miami got whatever it wanted in the paint the first two games, things have flipped around here in Game 3. – 7:34 PM

Danny Leroux @DannyLeroux
New @RealGM Radio podcast! @MoDakhil_NBA and I go through all four second round series, including Embiid’s (hopeful) return, the Suns’ dominant game two, Grizz/Warriors, Celtics/Bucks and much more basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/266840… – 7:33 PM

Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly
#Sixers are 2 for 2 on 3-pointers so far after going 14 for 64 (.219) without Joel Embiid in the first two losses to the #Heat. – 7:27 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Good start to this one. James Harden and Danny Green have knocked down some triples and they have a 10-8 lead early. Joel Embiid has 2 points from the free throw line. #Sixers7:26 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Heat fronting Embiid in the post and sending help when gets the ball, as Miami often does. – 7:21 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Joel Embiid obviously impacts the game in a lot of different ways, but at least being slightly competitive on the defensive glass would be a nice change of pace for the Sixers. – 7:19 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Embiid takes his mask off, and gets a towel to wipe his face, during Harden’s free throws. – 7:19 PM

Austin Krell @NBAKrell
1:18 into the game and PJ Tucker hit Embiid in the face going for the ball (called for a foul). – 7:18 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
What an opening possession from Miami
Bam-Butler switch
Butler fronts Embiid
Strus waiting for the help
Charge – 7:18 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Ref calls offensive foul on Embiid on the Sixers first possession. – 7:17 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Embiid opens it for 76ers with a charge. But his face appears intact. – 7:17 PM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
As you can imagine, home crowd went ballistic during Joel Embiid’s introduction, followed by MVP chants – 7:14 PM

Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly
Massive ovation when @MattyCord announces Joel Embiid as the #Sixers‘ final starter in Game 3 vs. #Heat7:14 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Let’s just say the atmosphere to start this game is *slightly* more energetic than it was for Games 1 and 2 in Miami. Joel Embiid’s re-introduction to the proceedings has plenty of juice in the building ahead of a do-or-die Game 3 for the 76ers. – 7:12 PM

More on this storyline

Michael Gallagher: Joel Embiid was officially listed as doubtful on the 6:30 injury report. The 76ers announced he was available at 6:41 for the 7:00 tip. At least Devin Booker was listed as available at the 6:30 injury report for the 7:30 tip that day. -via Twitter @MikeSGallagher / May 7, 2022

JD Shaw: The Sixers are currently listing Joel Embiid as questionable to play in Game 4 tomorrow. Something tells me he’ll be active again. -via Twitter @JShawNBA / May 7, 2022

Joel Embiid returned after missing more than a week with a facial fracture and concussion to play 36 minutes, score 18 points and grab 11 rebounds to lead his 76ers to a 99-79 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 3 of this Eastern Conference semifinal, pulling Philadelphia back into the series after dropping the opening two games. “No,” Embiid said, when asked if there was ever a moment when he thought he wouldn’t return to the series. “When it happened, after we figured out what really happened, I didn’t think about [the possibility of not playing]. -via ESPN / May 7, 2022
