- Quarter 2: Toronto Raptors
- Quarter 3: Philadelphia 76ers
- Quarter 4: Toronto Raptors
This is still a match that the Philadelphia 76ers will not be subjective when the head-to-head record is still 5-5 in the last 10 matches against the Raptors. In the regular season, the Sixers have lost 3 and won only 1 game at the end of December last year. Even so, on a day when Philadelphia’s pillars played well, they took down the Raptors. The first Playoffs match ended with a victory for the Sixers, in which two less noticeable players, Maxey and Harris, scored 38 and 26 points, respectively. As Harden played with dedication, it is clear that the Sixers can expect an effective and beautiful play, instead of running into the basket to catch a penalty as usual. Raptors on the day that Anunoby and VanVleet showed hope in Game 2, both players played very well. But the Rookie of the Dinosaurs is the brightest player in this match. Scottie Barnes almost got himself a Triple Double with 15 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists all game. The inner circle is still not an easy place for the Sixers. With a 7-point handicap from the home team, the Toronto Raptors can completely overcome and even win.
131 points on the first day of the Playoffs is truly an insane number for the Sixers to get, when the defense of the teams is at maximum. The Raptors drowned too quickly after the first half of the game, with the score at that time already up to 69-51. This terrible form will not be repeated, the upcoming match may be towards Under 220.5, when the Dinosaurs are more determined.
