76ers vs. Raptors score: Live updates as Joel Embiid, James Harden lead Philadelphia against Toronto in Game 2
With just 48 hours between Games 1 and 2, the Toronto Raptors needed to make some major adjustments if they hoped to tie up their first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers and avoid falling into an 0-2 hole. On the other side, the 76ers would like to replicate Saturday’s Game 1 performance in as many ways as possible in order to take a 2-0 series lead across the border for Game 3. With three quarters in the books, the 76ers look like they’re well on their way to another blowout victory.
The 76ers opened up their first-round series with the Raptors with a commanding 131-111 victory, thanks largely to Tyrese Maxey’s stellar performance. Maxey paced Philadelphia with 38 points. He also received a good amount of help from Joel Embiid (19 points, 15 rebounds), James Harden (22 points, 14 assists) and Tobias Harris (26 points, six assists). Toronto looked overmatched for the majority of the first game. Pascal Siakam led the way for the Raptors with 24 points and seven assists, and OG Anunoby added 20 points and seven rebounds, but ultimately their combined production wasn’t nearly enough. We’ll see if that changes tonight.
