Toronto Raptors’ dramatic win produces record television ratings in Canada

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Toronto Raptors Prediction, Preview, and Odds - 5-12-2019

Scotiabank Arena in Toronto will host Sunday's game, which will determine who faces the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference finals.

He finished Game 5 with 17 points, helping the Raptors take a 3-2 series lead with a 125-89 blowout win.

Scoring 41 of his team's 92 points, Kawhi now owns the record for highest percentage (44.6%) of a team's points in a Game 7 victory. Much like Game 4, Sunday's game was there for the taking and the Sixers couldn't quite do it largely because of factors that were very much in their control.

Which Ben Simmons will show up when the Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors clash in their do-or-die game seven? Philadelphia shot 46.1 percent from the field, including 10 of 28 from three-point range, and dominated the glass 52-34 to help offset 18 turnovers.

The 76ers now enter the offseason with plenty of questions surrounding their roster, as Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris, and JJ Redick are set to become free agents.

Philadelphia 76ers centre Joel Embiid watches from the corner as Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard squats down and sticks out his tongue waiting for the ball to drop for Raptors to win.

In their only other conference finals, Toronto lost to LeBron James and Cleveland in six games in 2016.

From Lowry's assist to the charge on Embiid, the Raptors outscored the 76ers 17-7.

"For any National Basketball Association team", Redick said, "when you think about a coach and potentially replacing that coach, you have to consider what coaches are available". "That's something I never experienced before, Game 7, a game-winning shot".

The Raptors now are 10 in the league during the postseason by averaging 104.6 points per game.

Marc Gasol and Pascal Siakam led the charge with 11 boards each, while Kawhi Leonard (8), Serge Ibaka (8), Kyle Lowry (6) and Danny Green (4) all did their bit.

Embiid missed the entirety of Toronto's 12-0 run that cut a 19-point lead to seven and had fans booing as the All-Star big man took a breather.

The Raptors are 32-9 on their home court.

"I think you would tend to think that in a long coaching career this is really, really, really big, biggest moment ever, but I think back to when I was getting ready to coach the Manchester Giants versus the Birmingham Bullets back in 2000, it meant a lot to me in the moment", Toronto's Nick Nurse said.

"I've been fortunate to be in a few Game 7's and they're very unique", Brown said Thursday after Philadelphia's Game 6 win.
