When the Toronto Raptors take on the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night, they will be looking for their fourth straight victory. The Raptors won 106-92 against Miami as six-point favorites. The 76ers are 5.5-point favorites after defeating Dallas 116-108.
The Toronto Raptors are eighth in the Eastern Conference and are on the verge of missing the playoffs. They’re desperate for victories to keep their playoff hopes alive, and they’ve won three straight games. They beat the 76ers earlier in the season, and they should add another to make it four consecutive wins.
They’ve found a solid groove in their last three games and are in a good position to pull off the upset because they’re the hotter team entering this game. They’ve won their last three games by double digits, thanks to big scoring performances from Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby.
Gary Trent Jr. is still listed as ‘questionable’ for this game, so expect the Raptors’ guards to step up the ball movement in their play. As the defense draws in on Siakam, it will be critical to get the ball to him. They have enough talent on the wings to hit 34% of their threes.
The Philadelphia 76ers are third in the Eastern Conference rankings and are challenging the Boston Celtics for second place. They had a strong run in March thanks to Joel Embiid, but they’ve slowed to 2-4 in their last six games. They’ll try to build momentum as home favorites against the Raptors after a win.
With a significant mismatch against Toronto, Joel Embiid will maintain his usual dominance here. It’ll be interesting to see if Embiid takes advantage of the matchup early on, or if he turns to players like Tyrese Maxey and James Harden for help. They are coming off a three-game losing streak in which they struggled to fire from deep.
