Philadelphia 76ers vs. Toronto Raptors Game 7 Results

“We did a lot of things that we could have done better but we found a way to win the game”, Lowry said.

According to oddsmakers, the Raptors are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -6 points against the 76ers.

“I’m a guy that acts like I’ve been there before”.

On the final thrilling play, Leonard took an inbound from Gasol and shot from just in front of the Raptors bench.

It wasn’t a 35-point, nine- assist gem like Lowry’s crowning Game 7 moment to knock out Miami a few years ago, but it was still a masterpiece and a master class on how to have an all-star impact on a game when your shots aren’t going down.

Giannis Antetokounmpo #34 of the Milwaukee Bucks looks on during the second quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Boston Celtics during the 2019 NBA Playoffs at TD Garden on May 06, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Whether it’s Leonard or Embiid, the best player in the NBA’s Eastern final will be Giannis Antetokounmpo.

“Obviously I had a tough matchup with Kawhi, but I love taking that challenge”.

That’s the first thing that came to mind in the immediate aftermath of watching Kawhi Leonard hit a shot you had to see to believe.

One of the main talking points through the fan base and the media throughout the playoffs has been whether or not Brett Brown will be coaching the Sixers next season.

As for Simmons, he became more aggressive as the series against the Raptors wore on.

“I will be on a mission personally to help our players get through this”, Brown said.

Butler, who finished Game 7 with 16 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, didn’t want to talk about his future after the game, but there’s no doubt that his off-season decision will impact the 76ers greatly, particularly because the team just appeared to start to gel late in the season and during the playoff run.

A rare moment of gravitas for Embiid during his young career, and one that just might be the trigger for bigger things to come. “Game 7 memories, what do you learn, what do you remember?” But I ended up catching it and just trying to get to a space so I could get a shot off. Embiid was guarding me.

In his first season with the Toronto Raptors, Danny Green is headed to the Eastern Conference Finals.

However, the Raptors needed every bit of offence he could give them.

In seven games against Philadelphia, Leonard averaged 34.7 points, 9.9 rebounds and 4.0 assists while shooting 53 per cent and playing almost 40 minutes per contest. He shot 56.6 percent from the field in that five-game series while also knocking down 50.0 percent of his attempts from 3-point range.

Kawhi Leonard bounced, bounced, bounced, bounced the Philadelphia 76ers out of the playoffs.

“Nothing matters”, the Raptors guard said, “but Game 7“.

Luckily for Lowry, VanVleet had perhaps his best minutes of the series in the first quarter before he was back early in the second. He deserves the majority of the credit for turning the organization around from the 10-win season just four years ago, too, which was nothing short of an impressive feat.

But it was Toronto’s superstar Leonard who was the hero. “I just thought I had to put it up even higher than that”.

PRESSURE IS ON: Everybody, of course, but Philadelphia has only four players who know what Game 7 feels like.
