  • Philadelphia 76ers vs. Toronto Raptors Prediction, Preview, and Odds - 5-12-2019

Sure, they lost this game at the buzzer, but Philly had plenty of opportunities to swing Game 7 in their favour.

Which Ben Simmons will show up when the Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors clash in their do-or-die game seven?

Game one is on Tuesday in Oakland, California.

DURING THE PLAYOFFS: 76ers: Averaging 110.4 points, 49.2 rebounds, 25.2 assists, 6.6 steals and 5.3 blocks per game while shooting 46.1 percent from the field.

The now-iconic photo of Leonard - tongue out, crouching in anticipation - Joel Embiid and the Raptors bench watching the play unfold has been shared widely among fans, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Forbes and even Toronto's very own Drake.

"It's not unlike where we've been a couple of times already this series", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. Philadelphia won the lone previous series between the teams back in the 2001 Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Raptors took Game 1 but dropped the next two in an ugly fashion.

While he may only have one National Basketball Association championship ring and one Finals MVP award (both in 2012) - a far cry from Jordan's six in both categories - at the age of 27 and eight wins from another Larry O'Brien Trophy, it's hard to just laugh off those Leonard-Jordan comparisons.

The difference this year is the generational talent the Raptors have in Kawhi Leonard, who finished with 41 points on 16 of 39 shooting.

The Toronto Raptors' Game 7 victory on Sunday night was incredible for a number of reasons - and not just from a purely Canadian-centric point of view.

This means that all the coverage can be followed live on your desktop or laptop via the Sky Go app, which if you're an existing customer, is also available on iOS and Android smartphone and tablet devices. The 76ers are 14 in three pointers per game (9.5) but stand tied for 11 in three-point percentage as they cash in 33.1 percent of their shots from beyond the arc. After the ball bounced through the iron, Leonard rose with his arms in the air and let out a scream before being rushed by teammates.

Milwaukee Bucks: Looking ahead to Raptors/76ers Game 7: Adam McGee looked at both the Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors in regards to what both offer the Bucks in a matchup in this year's Eastern Conference Finals before the Raptors take their series Sunday night.

Embiid didn't do much early in Game 6, but Butler and Simmons built some needed separation.

It's the Philadelphia 76ers vs. Toronto Raptors with the victor advancing to play the Milwaukee Bucks.

The good news for Raptors fans?
