PHI vs TOR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Philadelphia 76ers can take a 3-1 lead in the series when they host Toronto Raptors in Game-4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal match at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia, in Philadelphia, on Monday morning (IST).
The Game-1 looks a distant memory now and it’s Philadelphia 76ers who are on the up and possibly running towards the Eastern Conference finals.
Joel Embiid was the star in the last two matches. His personal battle with Kawhi Leonard is getting the best out of the big man, who is scoring heavily of late. In the last match, he once again dropped a double-double scoring 33 points to go with a game-high 10 rebounds.
While Kawi Leonard had a good game as well. He scored 33 points but his teammates just failed to turn up when it really mattered.
Raptors are now facing a 2-1 deficit in the series and another loss would possibly come as deadly blow.
Regular Season Record-
Philadelphia 76ers: W-58, L-24
Toronto Raptors: W-51, L-31
Players to watch out for:
Joel Embiid – Was ineffective in Game-2 against the Raptors, and this can be said about the first two games. Raptors seem to have found a way to nullify him, but you can be sure that he can’t be caged for long.
He is averaging 24.3 points per game in the playoffs, also racking up 13.5 rebounds per game.
Ben Simmons – Sixers man for all occasions. He has failed to bring his offensive game in this series. Part of that due to the job he has been asked to do on Kawhi Leonard.
The 2018 rookie of the year is averaging 17.2 points per game and registering 7.2 assists per game.
Kawhi Leonard – Seems to be fighting a lone battle in the last two games. Only if he had got the support from his teammates, Raptors would not have been facing a 1-2 deficit in the series.
The 27-year-old small-forward can do almost anything on the court. The former Spurs man is averaging 30.7 points per game in the playoffs. While his exceptional 45 points display in the Game-1 shows his real capability.
Pascal Siakam – Started the series where he left off against Orlando Magic. He was pretty solid against the Philly in Game-1, scoring 29 points, along with seven rebounds.
The 25-year-old is averaging 23.7 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in the post-season.
