The Heat answered their wake-up call and are back in control of their playoff series against Philadelphia after walloping the Sixers 120-85 Tuesday in Sunrise.
Jimmy Butler had 23 points, while Max Strus added 19 points and 10 rebounds for Miami.
They bounced back strongly after two consecutive losses in Philly and now lead the series 3-2. One more win will put Miami in the Eastern Conference final.
The 35-point victory margin was the second-largest in Heat history.
”It’s just one game,” Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra said. ”They know it. We know it.”
Game 6 is Thursday night in Philadelphia.
