Who says there’s no reason to watch tonight’s Sixers game? We certainly have cause: Zhaire Smith will make his first career start tonight versus the Miami Heat, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

@BenSimmons25, Zhaire Smith, @JimmyButler, @tobias31 and @Jonahbolden43 will start tonight. -@PompeyOnSixers


It is also delightful to see that Jonah Bolden will start in place of Joel Embiid, who will not be playing tonight.

The Sixers take on the Heat at 7:30 pm in what could be Dwyane Wade’s final home game. It’s a real shame that Zhaire will have to shut him down on such an important night.
