PHI vs TOR DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Toronto Raptors host Philadelphia 76ers in an NBA match at the Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, on Wednesday.
DeMar DeRozan is an outstanding talent, few would doubt that and those falling in that category could easily find themselves inside the Arkham. However, the impact that Kawhi Leonard is having in Toronto is something never felt in Raptors’ history. This is not outlandish by any means because with a win over Dallas Mavericks, Toronto Raptors surged to 6-0 and which is the best ever start to a new campaign in their history. They are also one of just two remaining unbeaten teams in NBA this season.
The Raptors were already a daunting team in the 2017-18 year as they topped the Eastern Conference table in the regular season. But the capture of Kawhi Leonard from San Antonio Spurs, which also saw their own prized-asset DeMar DeRozan being traded back to Spurs, has proved to be the final piece of jigsaw which could fetch them at least an Eastern Conference Championship.
Philadelphia 76ers’ first six games have been equally distributed at home and away till now. But the home comfort can be clearly seen with the way results have panned out. The Sixers have won all three at Wells Fargo Center, and losing all three on the road. So a trip to Toronto to face the city franchise at a time when the 2014 NBA finals MVP is looking to make amends for the lost time, it can’t get any tougher for the Sixers.
The 76ers are averaging 112.5 points this season in all games and allowing 114.5 points against themselves. But their scoring average plummets to 109 in the away matches, while the opposing teams are scoring more than 120 points in every game against them.
Clearly, a performance of that stature will bring nothing but another haunting on the road for the Sixers.
Regular Season Record-
Toronto Raptors: W-6, L-0
Philadelphia 76ers: W-3, L-3
Players to watch out for:
Kawhi Leonard – There are few players that can’t be left out of any team if fit. Kawhi Leonard is certainly in that indispensable-lot category. The former San Antonio Spurs star is leading the scoring charts for the Raptors this season. He is averaging 26.6 points this season.
Kyle Lowry – He was 2nd in the list last season, only behind DeMar DeRozan, and that’s the case this season as well. The 32-year-old Point-Guard is racking up 19.8 points per game this season.
Joel Embiid – Though he may not have the aura like LeBron James have, Joel Embiid is a star in his own right. The 24-year-old Cameroonian was the only 76ers player to average in the 20s last season. While his start to this campaign is an MVP-calibre. He is racking up 29.2 points and 12.7 rebounds per game. Definitely, a candidate to be your star fantasy player for this match.
JJ Redick – The 34-year-old played 70 games last season, averaging 17.2 points per game. While this season, he is the only player to score in the 20s. If not a star player, he should at least be in your team.

PHI vs TOR DREAM11 Fantasy Team:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Arguably the best team in the first six games so far. Toronto Raptors have won all the six games, and Kawhi Leonard has been the main protagonist. While Philadelphia 76ers are 3-3 in the first six games and stopping an in-form Raptors in front of their own fans could be one of the toughest assignments for the Sixers.
Raptors to win this game.
