PHI vs TOR DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Two Eastern Conference giants will be squaring off in a pulsating NBA match when Toronto Raptors host Philadelphia 76ers at Scotiabank Arena, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Thursday morning (IST).
Barring some incredible stories, slowly, but gradually, the table is moulding into its familiar shape in the Eastern Conference.
Toronto Raptors topped the regular season standings last season as well. But the season met the untimely and a familiar end, as once again, they were put to the sword by LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference semifinals. It was a one-sided post-season series, too many dour performances from DeMar DeRozan in particular, as Raptors lost 0-4, and effectively was the end for Dwane Casey as the head coach.
Long-term assistant coach Nick Nurse is now in charge of the team, and the team and the form have gone a few notches above than the last season.
At the moment, Raptors with the 20-5 record boast the best win-percentage across both the conferences.
Denver Nuggets did end their eight-game winning streak in the last game, beating Kawhi Leonard and men 103-106 at Scotiabank Arena.
Philadelphia 76ers are in the table where they finished during the regular season in the 2017-18 campaign – third. They are on a four-game winning streak and can move to 2nd in the table if they beat Raptors in their next match.
Sixers beat Memphis Grizzlies 103-95 in the last match, improving their home record to a staggering 13-1.
Jimmy Butler continued to thrive in his new team, scoring 21 points, while Joel Embiid had a relatively average game by his own standard as he finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds.
But it was Ben Simmons who stole the limelight as he put a powerhouse performance, dominating the rim, scoring 19 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists in the match. JJ Redick, meanwhile, dropped the game-high 24 points.
Regular Season Record-
Toronto Raptors: W-20, L-5
Philadelphia 76ers: W-17, L-8
Players to watch out for:
Kawhi Leonard – Started the slowly, and was used sparsely considering his history with the injuries. However, the former San Antonio Spurs star is now playing regularly, scoring heavily and thus has taken his average to new heights.
The 27-year-old is now dropping 25.6 points per game this season, and it’s unbelievable and perhaps his true potential which he failed to unlock till this season.
Serge Ibaka – He could be a very good inclusion in your NBA fantasy team, as he can be an all-round show in any match. The 29-year-old scored 15 points in the last match and is averaging 16.4 points per game this season.
Joel Embiid – He had an average outing against the Grizzlies, as he struggled with the with his overall performance.
However, the 24-year-old remains Sixers’ best player this season, averaging 27.0 points per game this season. The last match was certainly a minor blip and he will be back to his best, that’s a guarantee.
JJ Redick – He was the team’s highest scorer in the last game. The 34-year-old had a vast experience, and his average of this season, 18.4 points per game which is significantly higher than his career average of 12.6, is proof that the class is permanent.
