PHI vs TOR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Facing a season-ending game, Philadelphia 76ers’ big guns came alive on the day of reckoning as they beat Raptors 112-101 in Game-6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal match. With the win, Sixers tied the series 3-3 and forced a game-7.

To say that the next game is pivotal for both the teams would be an understatement for a lot more is riding on this particular fixture.

Not only a place in the Eastern Conference finals is on the line, but the result could affect the impending free agency which both the franchises will be willing to avoid.

Both the teams roped in a host of superstars, putting a lot of hope on this season. The likes of Jimmy Butler, Kawhi Leonard and Tobias Harris are all on a short contract with their respective teams. So it’s highly likely that a negative result here could shape the shape of both the teams for the next season.
