What will it take for Sixers to close out Heat in 5?

It's been a season of firsts for the Sixers.  The first playoff berth since 2012, the first team to win 50-plus games since 2001, the first rookie to have 12 triple doubles since 1961, and the first playoff series for the fruits of The Process — Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Dario Saric...
