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

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

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?
