The Sixers were on a roll until they faced a brick wall against the Toronto Raptors by 12 points, 95-107. Ben Simmons controlled the floor with 17 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists but he also lost the ball eight times in this game. Tobias Harris led the team in scoring with 22 points, six rebounds and four assists while Furkian Korkmaz also added 17 points of his own. Rookie Matisse Thybulle finished with 13 points. Al Horford had it all except the scoring as he shot 3-of-11 from the field to end with a stat line of 7 points, ten boards, seven dimes and two steals. Against the Lakers, Ben Simmons will be directing the floor against a hungry LeBron James and they need Horford to take it higher if he intends to control the boards against Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard.
