The Miami Heat (33-29, 19-10 Home) play host to the Philadelphia 76ers (39-21, 15-11 Away) Wednesday in what should be a slow-paced game. The teams face off in their second consecutive game against each other.

Miami edged past Philadelphia 101-99 at Wells Fargo Center on Monday, their third straight head-to-head win. Jimmy Butler led the Heat with 23 points, 11 rebounds, and nine assists. Joel Embiid had 27 points in defeat. The 76ers are third in the Eastern Conference. The Heat are seventh in the Eastern Conference.

The Heat’s win on Monday was the teams’ only prior matchup this season. The Sixers have been led this season by Embiid, who is averaging 33.0 points per game, second-highest in the league. Embiid also has grabbed 10.4 rebounds per game, ninth-most in the league.

Meanwhile, James Harden is dishing 10.7 assists. Butler (21.9 ppg), Bam Adebayo (21.2), and Tyler Herro (20.5) have supplied much of the Heat’s offense. Adebayo also has collected 9.8 rebounds per game. Meanwhile, Kyle Lowry has tallied 5.3 assists per game.

Half-court execution will likely be the difference in this matchup that features a pair of the NBA’s slowest-paced teams, as the Heat are 28th in possessions per game while the 76ers are 26th.
