Well, we have been waiting for one of those for quite some time now, and Miami is going to have to figure out a way to find some sort of way to stop a juggernaut of a team that has more experience than those who are quick to be dismissive realize.

Kelly Olynyk scored 26 points off the bench to lead the Miami Heat. As a team, the Heat shot 44 percent from the field and 12 of 26 from the three-point line as they jumped out to an early lead with 35 points in the first quarter, but they just couldn't handle the 76ers in the second half where they were outscored by 74-43.

J.J. Redick led the Sixers in scoring with 28 points (four three-pointers) and Marco Belinelli, a late addition to the roster after the Hawks bought out his contract in February and Philadelphia signed shortly after, added 25 points (four three-pointers) off the bench. Ersan Ilyasova added 17 points and 14 rebounds.

Game 2 is Monday night at 8 p.m. Olynyk and James Johnson, who closed with 13 points, three rebounds and four assists, were leading the charge.
