Sixers vs. Heat game preview: Lineups, how to watch, broadcast info

The Philadelphia 76ers will play host to the Miami Heat on Monday to begin a home-and-home series, and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place. The Sixers will look to bounce back from a heartbreaking loss on Saturday as they continue their growth.

This will be the first matchup between the two teams this season since the Eastern Conference semifinals back in May when the Heat eliminated the Sixers in six games. Since then, both teams look a bit different, and Miami has been a bit underwhelming. They enter this contest as the No. 7 seed and this is a matchup that the Sixers should be able to take advantage of led by Joel Embiid.

Here’s when and where you should tune in to see the matchup:
