Matchup Overview

Don’t expect much brotherly love on Thursday, May 2 as the Raptors take on the 76ers in Philadelphia. Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series gets underway at 8:00 p.m. EST from Wells Fargo Center.

The Butler Did It

The Sixers needed one of their Big Four to step up in Game 2, and that’s precisely what happened as Jimmy Butler had 30 points and 11 rebounds to lead Philadelphia to a decisive 94-89 win. The four-time All-Star hit four three-pointers and had 12 points in the final quarter to seal the victory for the visiting 76ers.

Brett Brown was full of superlatives for his swingman after the game, playfully referring to him as “James” because of his mature approach. “He was just a tremendous rock,” Brown gushed. “He willed us to a lot of different situations. He was a stud.”

Embiid Showed Up… and Then Showed Up Siakam

Joel Embiid was far from 100% for Game 2 due to a nasty stomach bug, but he made his presence felt with his sensational defense on Pascal Siakam. The Cameroonian center held the Raptors’ second-leading scorer to 21 points on 25 shots and did a tremendous job of moving his feet and taking Siakam out of his comfort zone. It was a gusty call by Brown and it will be fascinating to see if he sticks with the assignment for Game 3.

Raptors Need Better Bench Production

Toronto’s bench averaged 36.2 points per game during the regular season, but managed only five in Game 2. The Raptors need far better performances from Serge Ibaka, whose scoring average has dropped by seven points in the postseason, and Fred VanVleet, who has finished with double digits just once since the playoffs began. Both players are too talented – and too important – to be non-factors moving forward.
