— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) May 9, 2019
The Raptors are coming off a massive 125-89 beating over the 76ers and will be looking to replicate those results this Thursday night. All in all, Kawhi Leonard has been an absolute monster for Toronto this postseason and in this series in particular. Undoubtedly San Antonio fans are feeling down in the dumps after seeing the caliber of player their franchise departed with. And considering how dominant Leonard has been against Philadelphia, we can fully count on the 76ers double teaming Toronto’s lead man this evening. After all, Leonard is averaging 34.6 points per game in this series and is making 58.3% of his shots from the field. Additionally, Kawhi averaged 30.3 points per game while shooting 50% from beyond the arc in his three regular season games against the Sixers. With these numbers in mind, it’s clear that the Leonard wrecking tour will continue this Thursday night.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (31.2 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 3.5 apg), Pascal Siakam (21.7 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 2.5 apg), and Kyle Lowry (12.6 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 7.3 apg).
The 76ers need Joel Embiid to come up big for them this evening. After all, Ben Simmons has yet to make a valuable contribution on offense. In fact, Simmons delivered just 14 points in Game 1 and his contributions have been dwindling game by game since. Meanwhile, Embiid has had one good scoring game in this series, Game 3, which saw Philadelphia come out on top. However, Embiid has delivered 16 or fewer points in 4 out of 5 games so far. Unless he’s able to turn it around tonight, Philadelphia will undoubtedly be eliminated at home. Moreover, the whole Philadelphia roster has been struggling with three-point shooting in this series. Right now they’re only hitting 32.9% of their shots from that range, which is dead last amongst the remaining postseason contenders.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (20.4 ppg, 10.2 rpg, 3.6 apg), Jimmy Butler (19.2 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 5.3 apg), and Tobias Harris (15.5 ppg, 9.1 rpg, 4.0 apg).
