The Toronto Raptors will play the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at the Wells Fargo Center. These two teams have been rivals ever since they faced each other in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals in 2019 when the Raptors' Kawhi Leonard sank a game-winner at the buzzer in Game 7.
The Toronto Raptors have lost both their previous games while the Philadelphia 76ers are entering this matchup with a 2-1 record. The Raptors will be under pressure to avoid another loss.
Philadelphia 76ers - Team News
The Philadelphia 76ers are doing well in the Eastern Conference. They won their season opener and followed it up by beating the Knicks by 20 points. However, they are coming off a disappointing loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers and will try to win a game at their home court.
The game against the Toronto Raptors will be tough to win as their star center and leader in points, Joel Embiid, is listed as 'doubtful'. Their backup guard Furkan Korkmaz is also due to miss at least two weeks because of a groin injury.
Injured: Furkan Korkmaz
Doubtful: Joel Embiid
