Toronto Under Philadelphia
-2.0 213.0 112-101
  • Toronto took the 76ers to school in a 125-89 Game 5 win, taking a 3-2 series lead, with the 36-point margin the largest in the Raptors’ postseason history.  With Embiid again a non-factor, Philadelphia found themselves down 21 points at halftime and never threatened from there.
  • Kawhi Leonard averaged 38 points over the first 4  games but only needed 21 points and 13 rebounds with Game 5 under control.
  • Joel Embiid (knee, illness) continues to struggle, and had just 13 points in Game 5, but among the 76er’s problems were 19 turnovers that led to 31 Toronto points.
  • Ben Simmons has looked like a traffic cone out there late in games, and if the 76ers are to be a chance the Aussie must be aggressive at the rim and contribute to the scoreline in some way. Learning how to shoot may be a start…
  • Raptors are 16-6 ATS in the last 22 meetings.
  • Under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

OUR PICK  = Toronto -2.0
