Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers (01:00 BST on Friday) - Eastern Conference Semi-finals Game 3


The Philadelphia 76ers are happy to tie their Eastern Conference semi-final duel against the Toronto Raptors when the series shifts to the City of Brotherly Love for Game 3 and Game 4. The Sixers knotted the best-of-seven series at 1-1 after posting a 94-89 win in Canada on Monday night. Jimmy Butler had 30 points and 11 rebounds as Philadelphia avenged their 108-95 Game 1 defeat two nights earlier. They also snapped Toronto’s five-game winning run to secure their first win in the Ontario capital since 2012. Butler stepped up after scoring just 10 points in the opener. James Ennis added a play-off career-best 13 points off the bench while Joel Embiid and JJ Redick chipped in 12 and 11, respectively. Embiid played despite experiencing flu-like symptoms that kept him out of the morning shootaround. The Cameroonian big man is also nursing a sore left knee. Back-up centre Greg Monroe was another Sixer who played quality minutes in Game 2 although he is questionable in this contest after leaving in the third period with a sore left ankle. The veteran centre, who played 38 games for the Raptors in the regular season, tallied 10 points and five rebounds. Kawhi Leonard paced Toronto with 35 points while Pascal Siakam added 21 but shot just 9-of-25 from the field. Kyle Lowry was the only other Raptor to hit double figures with 20 points. Head coach Nick Nurse expects the likes of Serge Ibaka, Marc Gasol and Danny Green to increase their outputs if the Raptors are to get back on track. We expect the Sixers to pick up another win the series.
