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

Beautiful!

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.
