76ers pull away from Raptors in Game 3

Brown knows slowing Leonard won't be easy | News, Sports, Jobs

The series shifted to Philadelphia on Thursday and the Sixers rolled 116-95 to take a 2-1 lead as Embiid was spectacular with 33 points, 10 rebounds, five blocks and three assists in just 28 minutes - Embiid simply isn't going to play 40 minutes as his body can't take it. The Raptors ran Simmons through screens to give Leonard the space he needed to create and bury open jumpers. Against any mere mortal, that wouldn't look impressive. Add in a wind-mill dunk and a variety of other nifty post moves and moments and it was a game for the ages for Embiid. "We're really trying to play defense". Per the Athletic, Leonard has shot 48% from the field when guarded by Simmons, a ridiculous 77.3% against everyone else. It's not all on Lowry, of course, but consider that this postseason includes a game where he contributed zero points in a loss to Orlando. "Myself especially, I've got to help him score more".

Embiid was a force on both ends of the floor for Philadelphia. In the last two contests, Siakam is just 7 of 24 when guarded by his fellow Cameroonian.

Unlike Simmons, Butler had the perimeter game down pat, and is an excellent free-throw shooter that can get his at the rim, or create foul-prone situations for his matchups, whether it is a matter of speed or strength that favors him. "With Kawhi, you just go to make it as tough as you can defensively". You take them over and over again. Ben has been doing a good job. "But at the same token, they've got guys that can do the same thing". The rest is all about rebounding. Just a year removed from finishing third in the National Basketball Association in defensive rating, the Sixers were tied for 13th in 2018-19.

Although the Raptors players looked deflated at the end of Game 3 while some of the 76ers players were busy showboating for the home crowd, they are only one win away from taking back home court advantage heading back to Toronto.

I just really respect it". "I know that I went psycho on the phone/I never leave well enough alone". Another Instagram post shows the singer carrying Benjamin Button around in her arms like a baby.

Embiid is the anchor both because of his elite defensive skill set, but also the fire he plays with. He did get whistled for a Flagrant 1 foul after he tripped Joel Embiid during the fourth quarter of Game 3 (which you can watch in the video above). Sure enough, the stunt ensured the fan hit the modest milestone and the user Waiting for Playoff Anzejs tweeted a photo of "Mike Scott Hive" on his left side. "Ain't nobody f--ing with him down there". Butler is fearless with a great pension for knowing when and how to exert his influence over a game.

The series did begin to get a bit chippy. "We've got to help him", Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said after Philly's 116-95 win in Game 3, a night where Leonard scored 33 points and his teammates shot 36 percent.

Those odds have flipped after Philadelphia's commanding Game 3 victory, and the Sixers are now -129 to win the series according to leading oddsmakers.

"Everybody wants to paint the picture that we haven't won here in however many years", Butler said. "I know to get my game going, I've got to have fun on the court". Kawhi still shot an unbelievable percentage of contested two's, but there was no other clear place to attack the desperate and staunch Philadelphia defense.
