Stream: Watch ESPN, NBA League Pass
Online NBA Betting Odds:
The Raptors butchered the start to this series by allowing Philly a win on the road. Nevertheless, tonight’s online NBA betting odds are pegging Toronto as the favorite. All in all this isn’t that shocking since the 76ers are 3-7 in their last 10 matchups against Toronto. In addition, the Raptors were 28-15 on the road this past season. With that in mind, it’s clear that this team knows how to handle themselves on the road. After all, they were undefeated on the road against the Magic in their opening series. However, if Toronto is serious about getting this win tonight they’ll have to improve their shooting. Through two games in this series, Toronto has made just 19 of 64 shots from beyond the arc. Look for Philly to capitalize on that tonight.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (31.3 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 3.3 apg), Pascal Siakam (23.3 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 2.7 apg), and Kyle Lowry (12.3 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 2.7 apg).
The 76ers are playing at home tonight but the odds don’t think that’s enough to come out on top here. However, if Jimmy Butler is able to deliver another performance like he did in Game 2, Philly should be able to take the lead tonight. Game 2 saw Butler deliver 30 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists, which led to the 76ers win undoubtedly. Like the Raptors, Philadelphia is also struggling with their threes here. In fact, Philly is only hitting 28.7% of their tree pointers this postseason. Unless they turn that figure around, it’ll be a long night for Philadelphia at home.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (21.2 ppg, 11.3 rpg, 3.5 apg), Jimmy Butler (17.0 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 4.7 apg), and Tobias Harris (15.9 ppg, 10.1 rpg, 4.4 apg).
