The Philadelphia 76ers didn't need Joel Embiid for Game 1 of their first round series against the Miami Heat on Saturday.

Joel Embiid rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell, and the Sixers made a whole lot of noise as the new edition of The Process began with a resonance that will echo throughout the National Basketball Association.

It was the Sixers' first playoff game in five seasons under coach Brett Brown. He was superb as the Sixers' leader on the floor, commanding a second half surge that put Philadelphia in the driver's seat for good. He will not play in Game 1 and from that point going forward, we'll figure some stuff out.

Game 2 in the best-of-seven series is Monday night at Oracle Arena.

"I feel fine", Redick said.

The Sixers, who set an National Basketball Association record with 16 straight wins to end the season, got the rout in full swing with a raucous crowd behind them.
