Sure Not Now

10:23 p.m. - I think he's getting his swagger back...

10:20 p.m. - Get up Pascal!

10:14 p.m. - How about JV getting nasty with the finish!

10:07 p.m. - 12-4 spurts from the Raps to start the fourth period. Joel Embiid has looked a step slow all game long...only 10 points on 5-for-15 shooting. Butler and Reddick might have to carry the offensive load all the way home if Philly expects to win tonight.

End of 3rd Quarter: Raptors 78 76ers 77

9:58 p.m. - Raptors offence becoming very Kawhi-heavy in that 3rd quarter and even though he has a game-high 33 points Toronto will need to move the ball against a stingy Philly defence. Jimmy Butler has picked up the offensive slack with Joel Embiid struggling. Butler has 27 points, nine rebounds. Ball movement and taking care of the rock important for both teams in the fourth quarter.

9:48 p.m. - Jimmy Butler keeping the 76ers not only in it but with a chance to take the lead again. He has 25 as Philly is only down two (71-69) with 4:21 left in the third quarter.

9:45 p.m. - Start of the 2nd half same story for the 76ers, they can't keep a hold of the ball. Danny Green finally finds the range from deep putting the Raptors up 66-58.

Halftime: Raptors 53 76ers 49

9:16 p.m. - A 16 point turn around to see the Raptors take the lead into the halftime break. Philly led by as many as nine points in the first half but turnovers allowed the Raptors to come back and take the lead.

Jimmy Butler leads the way for thr 76ers with 16 points on 5-for-10 from the field. Both teams struggling to shoot from three point range: Tor 20% Phi: 33.3%.

9:05 p.m. - 76ers are shooting 50% so far midway through the second period, but they're shooting themselves in the foot with turnovers. Nine turnovers and counting leading to 13 points off turnovers for Toronto. If the 76ers can take care of the ball they'd be up far more than just three points at the moment.

8:52 p.m. - Kawhi is cooking, comes off the bench drills a three Raps down 33-32. Leonard with 14 points on 5-for-6 shooting from the field.

End of 1st Quarter: 76ers 29 Raptors 23

8:42 p.m. - Raptors needed a spark off and Jonas Valanciunas provided it with eight quick points off the bench in just 3 minutes of play, only problem is he also picked up three fouls in that stretch and had to head to the bench. 76ers close the quarter out with a 29-23 lead shooting 52.2% from the field and 10 team assists. Great ball movement from the 76ers keeping the Raptors off-balance and guessing defensively.

8:38 p.m. - Ben Simmons with the dime!!

8:35 p.m. - Out of the timeout Raptors on the wrong end of a 11-2 run until Kawhi drops a three to make it 23-17. 76ers call timeout with 2:51 to go in the first quarter. Raptors went cold from the field during that stretch, only one that seems to have the touch from the field is Kawhi.

8:25 p.m. - Both teams off to a good shooting start. Kawhi is 3-for-3 from the field for 6 early points. Good sign for Kawhi to hit his first couple of shots and to get an easy dunk in transition. Defensively Leonard has started out on Ben Simmons leaving Lowry to defend Wilson Chandler. 76ers trying to exploit Chandler's size advantage on Lowry so far hasn't work.

Pregame

7:20 p.m. - The Sixers starters are in: They will open with a lineup of Ben Simmons, J.J. Redick, Jimmy Butler, Wilson Chandler and Joel Embiid.

7:15 p.m. - Toronto is going with a starting lineup of Kyle Lowry, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam and Serge Ibaka.
