TOR vs PHI Dream11: The Playoffs caravan just speed ahead and in this game, the Toronto Raptors will look to save their season as they clash against the Philadelphia 76ers. They have lost all of their three games in the series and things are looking gloomy.
The 76ers managed an Overtime win in the last game as Joel Embiid hit the gamewinner. The Raptors offense has been choked out and they keep losing the battle in key moments. Can they recover to force a Game 5 or will their season’s flame be extinguished by Embiid and co.?
Host: Toronto Raptors
Visitors: Philadelphia 76ers
Match Timing: 23 April, @ 11:30 PM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Scotiabank Arena
Part IV: Have Raptors got any chance?
Joel Embiid has been unstoppable in the last two games and has hit his groove. No Raptors player has been able to match up his offensive output as he has been getting it going many times. The 76ers have been way more efficient than the Raptors and their scoring balance has been amazing as Harris, Maxey, and Harden all have contributed in different spheres.
The biggest problem for the Raptors has been that Pascal Siakam and Fred Van Vleet have not shot at a high rate in the last two games. Because of that, the Raptors after leading for most of the game in the third match, later lost the plot. Can they get at least one game?

*Game 3 stats
Pascal has struggled in the last two games but his overall impact has been important for the team nonetheless. He needs a big performance here and I see a 20-26 points, 7-10 rebounds, and 3-6 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 35-50
Center Embiid has done a great job in the middle and his scoring and rebounding both have been vital for the Sixers. He can be in 29-34 points and 10-15 rebounds range here. He is usually the favorite for Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 38-58
Harden hasn’t had a huge scoring night but he is dipping dimes and clinching boards. I believe he will be in 17-23 points, 8-12 assists, and 5-7 rebounds range here.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 34-46
Fred Van Vleet(TOR)
PG Fred has been unable to leave a deep offensive impact in the last two games and he will be needed to get the gears. I expect a 15-22 points, 6-9 assists, and 4-6 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-44
Maxey has gotten it done in the first three games and he will be a huge factor as the 76ers campaign will tick ahead. I expect a 18-24 points and 4-6 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-48
OG Anunoby (TOR)
Anunoby has done a great job on both ends of the floor and he has especially been an effective scorer lately. I expect a 19-25 points range here.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-40
