The Miami Heat are currently making it look easy.
They are sailing through their series against the Philadelphia 76ers and have a 2-0 lead against them.
Some people are reminding Miami fans that the 76ers are short-handed right now and lacking one of their stars, Joel Embiid.
However, the Heat are also without one of their biggest assets.
The Heat casually lost their starting point guard two weeks ago and haven’t lost since

As Brady Hawk pointed out on Twitter, the Heat lost their starting point guard, Kyle Lowry, two weeks ago.
But that hasn’t stopped them one bit.
In fact, they haven’t lost since.
No Lowry, No Problem
The last time Lowry played was the last time the Heat lost a game.
It was April 22 against the Atlanta Hawks – the only game the Hawks won in that series, by the way.
Since then, the Heat have won every single game they’ve played.
It’s true that they’re playing against the 76ers team that is much easier without Embiid but it can’t be denied that the Heat are playing excellently.
That being said, they’d be glad to have Lowry back in rotation.
Before his hamstring injury, Lowry was averaging 13.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 7.5 assists a game.
If his past is any indication, he’d be helping out a lot in the playoffs.
With his previous teams, Lowry averaged 15.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 5.7 assists in the playoffs.
After years of playing with the Toronto Raptors and winning one Finals with them, Lowry was excited to bring his abilities to Miami in hopes of helping them win a ring too.
It remains to be seen if he will be able to appear in these playoffs.
But it’s obvious that even if he doesn’t come back, the Heat can get by just fine without him.
