Philadelphia 76ers at Toronto Raptors (01:00 BST on Wednesday) - Eastern Conference Semi-finals Game 5

It’s back to square one for the Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors when they face off in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference semi-final showdown at the Scotiabank Arena. The Raptors tied the best-of-seven series at 2-2 after posting a 101-96 win in Philadelphia on Sunday. Kawhi Leonard had 39 points and 14 rebounds as Toronto bounced back after losing Game 2 and Game 3. The former Finals MVP got plenty of support from his team-mates. Marc Gasol had 16 points while Kyle Lowry tallied 14 and seven assists. Serge Ibaka registered 12 points, nine rebounds and three blocks off the bench while Danny Green chipped in 11. Pascal Siakam was held to just nine points as he played through a calf injury. The Cameroonian forward averaged over 23 points in the first three games of the series. All Philadelphia starters scored in double figures with Jimmy Butler leading the way with 29 points and 11 rebounds. JJ Redick added 19 points while Tobias Harris contributed 16. Bothered by an illness, Joel Embiid was held to 11 points after scoring 33 in Game 3. The Sixers must minimise the production of Leonard if they are to retake the series lead. The three-time All-Star is averaging 39 points and 9 rebounds in the series. The Raptors are upbeat heading home that’s why we are backing them to win Game 5.

Portland Trail Blazers at Denver Nuggets (03:30 BST on Wednesday) - Western Conference Semi-finals Game 5

Game 5 of the Western Conference semi-final series between the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers returns to the Pepsi Centre with the series locked up at 2-2. The Nuggets tied the series after pulling off a 116-112 win in Portland on Sunday. Jamal Murray fired 34 points while Nikola Jokic had 21 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists for his second consecutive triple-double and fourth overall in the play-offs. Paul Millsap also scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Denver avenged their quadruple overtime loss at the Moda Centre less than 48 hours earlier. It was also Portland’s first home defeat in the post-season. CJ McCollum scored 29 points after dropping 41 in their Game 3 triumph to lead the Blazers. Damian Lillard added 28 points but shot just 9-of-22 from the field while Al-Farouq Aminu added 19 points. Enes Kanter, Maurice Harkless and Rodney Hood were all non-factors on the offensive end after scoring in double figures in Game 3. We expect Denver to seize the lead after this duel.
