Raptors Lose Game 6 to Sixers

Reversal of Fortunes, Sixers Dominates Raptors to Push Series to Game 7

Did we just watch this game a couple of nights ago?

It seems as though everything the Toronto Raptors did so well on their home court in Game 6, the Philadelphia Sixers did tonight. Everything the Sixers did so poorly on Tuesday night, the Raptors did on Thursday evening.

On the brink of elimination, the Sixers were not ready to see their season end, as Philadelphia came out ready to play, pushing the ball and asserting themselves as the aggressors only. The team that has won the first quarter has gone onto win each game of the series, and the Sixers took care of business early, taking a 29-21 lead into the second, a lead they would not relinquish.

As good as the Sixers were at halting runs, the Raptors failed to capitalize on their brief stints of defensive execution. Missing open shots, turnovers, and an inability of getting second chance opportunities, every time the Raptors were a big possession away from making it a game, a clean look failed to fall for the Raptors. A missed shot would lead to a change in momentum as the Sixers went on to steal back all of them energy, closing out each quarter effectively, and outplaying their opponents.

Jimmy Butler maintained his usual high level of play and while a healthier-looking Joel Embiid was a great sight to see for Sixers fans, it was a big breakout from Ben Simmons that shifted the momentum to the home team early in the basketball game. Butler finished the night to score 25 points and Simmons logged in a 21 points, eight rebounds, and six assists en route to a 112-101 victory.

Matt Devlin said it best at the conclusion of the broadcast: “this series has had more swings than a Rocky Balboa-Apollo Creed fight.”

Let’s play a Game 7!
