Philadelphia 76ers primed for rare win in Toronto

Jimmy Butler

Lowry served up a total dud, going 1-for-9 from the field, including 1 of 8 on threes.

In their loss to the Nuggets, the Raptors shot.268 (11-for-41) from 3-point range and were 3-for-22 (.136) from beyond the arc in the first half.

After the game, Lowry said he needs to play better and called himself too passive during this bad stretch. He's averaging 39.1 FanDuel points through 21 games overall this season.

Leonard then proceeded to turn the tone of Wednesday's tilt around, leading Toronto on a momentum-changing 13-0 run that gave the Raptors a 53-48 edge at the break.

A authoritative slam from Joel Embiid (10 pts, 12 reb, 5 ast, 2 blk) nudged the Sixers back ahead, but Raptors back-up big man Jonas Valanciunas keyed a 13-2 spurt by Toronto's bench that gave them control for good. "As long as we're winning games, it's supposed to be like that". "It's hard to say "Oh, we can stop him', he's just a guy that you must keep a body on, be physical with".

The sequel nature of New Dawn is now confirmed, but, Ubisoft clarifies, it's not an official Far Cry 6 release. Both Guns and Fangs for Hire return, but they're all new due to the whole end-of-the-world thing.

The Toronto Raptors' trade for Kawhi Leonard has had a positive effect so far. Lowry recorded a team-high 11 assists; his 14th game with 10 or-more assists this season and the 22nd consecutive time that he has led the team outright in assists, matching Damon Stoudamire's franchise record set in 1996.

Embiid's 23 double-doubles this season are the most by an National Basketball Association player over the first 25 games of a season since Kevin Garnett also had 23 in 2004-05. This [the Sixers] could be a playoff team that we're going to be playing in the future, but I don't really see it that way.

Before the game Nurse said that Valanciunas can be hard on himself, getting frustrated when the ball isn't falling.

The Raptors hurt themselves Monday with their slow start. Philadelphia is a good, tough opponent, and this wasn't a flawless outing for the Raptors, but it showed how talented this team is that they can fight through those games, even against a good team, and pull out the win. "They wanted to win more than we did". Good job - the second unit came in.

There will be a lot of questions for the Raptors about their shooting lately and how much they've struggled, but it's a good sign the way the team fought through that in this game and found a way to win, despite those troubles.
