Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers matchup is all it was built up to be.

Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia Dream11 Prediction
Game 1 was a display of cold perfection from the Canadian team with sterling performances from Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam, while also using the defensive smarts of Marc Gasol to lock up Joel Embiid and remove the advantage that the Sixers held in the series.
Game 2 was the return to form of Jimmy “James” Butler, who scored 30 points to go with 11 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the Sixers to an away win that tied up the series at 1 apiece. Siakam and Leonard still continued to be world class for the Raptors, with even Lowry dropping a 20 piece, but the Raptors bench continued to underwhelm scoring just 5 points on the night in total.
Game 3 will be the first time we move to Philly for the series and we have no clue which way to lean. The Raptors still look like the favorites given that their extremely poor game 2, by their standards, still almost ended up being so close, wherein a 3 point shot with 24 seconds to go could have tied the game up for them.
But we haven’t seen a breakout performance offensively from Simmons and Embiid, the latter of whom was suffering from gastroenteritis in the game 2 that he played through.
The Raptors might get back OG Anunoby for game 3 and that will be a big factor for their bench, whose production has been so poor that Leonard and Siakam have had to play 40+ minutes in both games to keep the Raptors afloat.
For Philly, Simmons and Embiid will have to step up at some point. Both players traditionally play better at home than they do away from home and a home game might be the spark that they need to find their feet in the series.
1) Kawhi Leonard
