Individual Player Analysis

As Philadelphia travels to take on the Toronto Raptors, the 76ers’ leading scorer is Joel Embiid. Through 71 games, Embiid is averaging 30 points. On the season, he has surpassed his season average in 52.0% of his games. Against the Raptors, Embiid will need to be on top of his game as Toronto is allowing their opponent’s top scorer to surpass their average in 43.0% of their games, placing them in the top 10. On the other side, Pascal Siakam leads the Raptors in scoring, averaging 22 points across his 69 games. Throughout the season, Siakam has outscored his season average in 51.0% of his outings. Given that Philadelphia’s defense has struggled to slow down their opponent’s top scorers, Pascal Siakam should be in line for a big performance. So far, the 76ers have allowed their opponent’s top scorer to surpass their season average in 51.67% of their games, giving them a rank of 24th among NBA defenses.

Joe’s Pick to Cover the Spread

The Philadelphia 76ers come into this matchup with an opportunity to be the first team in the league to lock up a trip to the 2nd round of the playoffs. To earn this right, the Sixers came up clutch in overtime, outscoring the Raptors 9-6 in the extra period of play. The Raptors have to be disappointed with their game 3 loss, as they finally reigned in the Sixers’ ability to get to the free-throw line. For the game, Philadelphia got to the line 20 times compared to the Raptors at 18. Even though it is rare to see a sweep in 4/5 matchup of the NBA playoffs, I see the 76ers taking care of business by finishing off Toronto. Look for the Sixers to cover the spread on the road.
