TOR vs PHI Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers

Share

TOR vs PHI Dream11: The First Round series count is decreasing with each day. We have seen the Celtics, Heat, Bucks, and Warriors qualify for next round while the Suns, Grizzlies, and the Mavericks are one win away from qualifying. There is one other team that is just a game away from making it to the next round and that is the Philadelphia 76ers, they will visit the Toronto Raptors in the last game.

The Raptors won the last game 103:88 as Pascal Siakam drilled 23 points and the balanced scoring of the team also helped the matters. The Raptors have won two in a row and although no team has ever come back from a three-nil deficit, they have made this series interesting through some terrific defense. Can they break the record of a team never winning down nil-three as they will need two more games?

Host: Toronto Raptors
Visitors: Philadelphia 76ers
Match Timing: 29 April, @ 04:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Scotiabank Arena

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Raptors come back strongly

The Raptors would be ruing the Overtime loss in Game 3 which would have tilted the series in their favor but they have done a great job of shutting down the 76ers in two games straight. They held the 76ers to below 40% shooting while also only allowing 27% from beyond the arc while forcing 15 turnovers and only committing 8 themselves.

Joel Embiid’s injured hand seems to be bothering him, but all in all, the Raptors have kept him in 19-21 points range in three of the five games. The Raps have also not allowed James Harden to settle while Maxey’s initial touch has disappeared. The lack of depth also makes matters complicated for the 76ers but credit should be given to the disciplined Raptors.

It is clear that the Raptors need Pascal Siakam to dominate both ends of the floor for them to have a strong chance of winning and with Fred Van Vleet out of the fray, Gary Trent and OG Anunoby have more responsibilities. Meanwhile, Precious Achiuwa surely has been a huge difference-maker off the bench while getting back Scottie Barnes has improved them in various ways as well.

Performance Predictions
Top Scorer: Pascal Siakam: 29
Top Rebounder: Joel Embiid: 13
Highest assists maker: James Harden: 10
Scoreline Prediction: Toronto Raptors 108    76ers 102

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 35-50

Joel Embiid(PHI)
Points: 20

Big Embiid has been bothered by an injured hand but he has had a substantial impact as a scorer, rebounder, and defender. I expect a 21-27 points, 10-15 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks/steals range. He is usually the favorite for Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.

James Harden(PHI)
Points: 15
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 07
Steals: 01

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-40

OG Anunoby(TOR)
Points: 16

    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-35
  • Gary Trent Jr.(TOR) had 16 points, 3 assists, 1 rebound, 2 steals in the last game. Gary hasn’t been efficient but with Fred injured, he will have to be assertive on the offensive end. I expect a 13-21 points range here.
