  • Game #31: Philadelphia 76ers 86 - Toronto Raptors 102



    Projected Starters:

    Toronto Raptors - JV, Ibaka, OG, DeRozan, Lowry
    Philadelphia 76ers - Embiid, Saric, Covington, Bayless, Simmons


    Notes:
    • This is the second game of a home and home series with the 76ers. On Thursday, the Raptors won in Philadelphia 114-109. DeMar had a career high 45 points.
    • Joel Embiid and JJ Redick were both unavailable for Philly. Embiid was probable but still missed that game. He might be ready for the game on Saturday. JJ Redick remains doubtful for this second game as well. If Embiid is not available Amir Johnson will most likely start.
    • The Raptors are playing their 3rd game in 4 nights.
    • The 76ers are now on a 4 game losing streak, and are 2-8 in their last 10.
    • The Raptors are on a 5 game winning streak, and are 9-1 in their last 10.
    • The Raptors are now sitting 1.5 games from first in the East.



    Let's go Raptors!

        Wizards lose by 35 to the Nets! Oubre was the Wiz' leading scorer with 13. Five Nets exceeded that.

          There's a clear top 3 in the East, followed by a mess of teams from 4 to 9, all separated by one game.

          The Sixers are sliding fast, they've got to turn it around quickly or they'll be joining the Nets-Hornets-Magic tier rather than that of the Pistons-Heat-Knicks

            John Wall gives teammates $600,000 in Rolex watches for Christmas!?!
            Generous or could have gone to kids without Christmas presents?

            Harden gets 50+ for two straight games and loses both. Loses his cool and gets tossed like a baby .....

            NBA morning highlights are so fun these days, so many great teams and players

              Game day. Game Day!
              Everything done for Christmas, the roads are really messy out there, the car is staying put until Christmas Eve church service.

              Stay safe everyone.

                Simmons/Embiid/Fultz are really talented, but the Philly hype train is out of control. Young players don't win in the NBA, Fultz is out, and Embiid is going to be lucky to play 2/3 of the season. So never mind young guys not winning even when they play, Philly's aren't even playing half the time.

                Lebron only won 35 games his rookie season, which was an amazing season, barely broke .500 his second season, and Cleveland wasn't a playoff team until his third year. And that's Lebron James.

                Embiid is essentially still a rookie, having played only 54 games. It's like everybody just decided "OK, Philly's a playoff team this year" without really thinking about it...

                          My guess is Noguiera will play only if Embiid will play cause our bigs could get into a serious foul trouble.

                              Here's the box score from the 1st Philly game in October. Nogueira was terrific.

                              If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.
