Whiteside a non-factor for Heat again

Anthony Davis had 28 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and two blocks for New Orleans, which can advance past the first round of the playoffs for the first time since 2008 with one more victory. San Antonio assistant Ettore Messina coached the team in Popovich's place.

LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 18 points while 35-year-old Tony Parker delivered 16 points in a throw-back performance.

Golden State is far from intimidated despite playing without Stephen Curry.

Joel Embiid scored 23 points in his first career play-off game to lift the Philadelphia 76ers past the Miami Heat 128-108 on Friday at American Airlines Arena.

The picture started to get a bit rosier in the hours before tipoff, though, as rumblings started that Embiid had been upgraded to probable and had been had been outfitted for a new mask that would offer as much protection as possible for his just-healed mug.

Marco Belinelli and Dario Saric also added 21 points each while Rookie of the Year candidate Ben Simmons scored 19 points, seven assists and 17 rebounds, however, the story of the game was Embiid.

"I'm trying to figure that out right now", he said.

Meanwhile, 76ers center Joel Embiid scored 23 points in his return after a 10-game absence to recover from surgery to fix a broken left orbital bone. "I'll spend some time working that out in the next day in a half".

Judge Extends Evidence Deadline For Cohen Team On Attorney-Client Privilege
The unusual, high-stakes court hearing Friday also featured an appearance by an attorney representing Trump, Joanna Hendon. She argued that material obtained from Cohen had to be handled carefully because some could relate to a sitting president.

Game 4 is Sunday at San Antonio.

But the ankle injuries suffered by Kevin Durant and Shaun Livingston appear to be minor. He had to get a doctor's clearance from the team and league approval for the mask and goggle combination that sometimes slipped off his face.

"I am just so proud of what he did", said Brown. I felt like it was time to come back, especially after watching how physical that Game 2 was.

The saga began in Game 2 when Heat guard Goran Dragic hit a layup with one second left - the shot clock was off - to make Miami's win a final score of 113-103.

"It kind of pissed me off", Embiid said after scoring 23 points, grabbing seven rebounds, dishing out four assists and blocking three shots in 30 minutes in Game 3 while wearing an uncomfortable pair of goggles and a protective mask that wasn't easy to see out of.

EMBIID: [Smiles] I don't know, it was just the only pictures I had in my phone, so I just had to go with that. "If I have a shot, take a shot, so I need to give credit to my teammates". Given it was the second time he suffered damage to that part of his face - it happened when he played at Kansas in 2013-14 - the doctors determined he has a high risk of reinjury, so the 76ers spent 10 days developing a protective mask that would withstand the physicality of an National Basketball Association game.

Odds for Game Four will be released shortly at the BetDSI Sportsbook. There were 14 lead changes and nine ties in the half, the Heat taking a 64-63 lead into the break.
