    Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid certainly aren't acting like playoff first-timers, and JJ Redick provided the veteran leadership that Philadelphia so desperately needed.

    The 76ers might very well be the NBA's team of the future.

    And that future might be starting sooner than many envisioned.

    Simmons was the first rookie since Magic Johnson in 1980 to have a playoff triple-double, Redick led Philadelphia with 24 points and the 76ers moved one win from the second round by topping the Miami Heat 106-102 on Saturday to take a 3-1 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series.
