We’re all tied up heading back to Miami. The Heat were in control for basically all of tonight’s game and pulled out a Game 2 win over the 76ers. The series is 1-1 going to South Beach.
We might be hearing about the final play of tonight’s game from now until Game 3. J.J. Redick did not appear to be happy with a final lay-in by Goran Dragic.
Philadelphia’s defenders were still pressing Miami, so Dragic made his way up the court and, after the defenders – Redick, mostly – parted, he put in an easy layup to push the score to 113-103.
Redick, who struggled from the 3-point line all night, appeared to look at Dragic in anger. He then cocked the ball back, acting like he was going to chuck it, before finally tossing it in angrily.
You can watch the final sequence below.

Welp. If you’re going to continue to defend someone, especially in the playoffs, you probably shouldn’t be mad when they shoot it. It’s not like Dragic did some show-boaty dunk, either. He just casually put it in.
Game 3 should be fun. It’s set for Thursday at 7 p.m. E.T.
