76ers primed for rare win in Toronto

Joel Embiid Philadelphia 76ers

The Raptors roared past Philly 129-112 on October 30 in Toronto, but less than two weeks later the Sixers upped the ante, acquiring Butler from Minnesota in a deal that drastically altered the Eastern Conference landscape.

The 76ers have lost 12 games in a row in Toronto, including a 129-112 decision on October 30. The Raptors in past years have been on the other side of these type of games, frequently against Butler, where an opposing star just won't stop hitting tough shots, no matter the defense, and the loss feels inevitable.

In their loss to the Nuggets, the Raptors shot.268 (11-for-41) from 3-point range and were 3-for-22 (.136) from beyond the arc in the first half. "It's a new day, we have a new team, and we're feeling good about the direction that we are heading".

76ers: Visit Detroit on Friday night. Lowry recorded a team-high 11 assists; his 14th game with 10 or-more assists this season and the 22nd consecutive time that he has led the team outright in assists, matching Damon Stoudamire's franchise record set in 1996.

Jonas Valanciunas scored a season-high 26 points, while Serge Ibaka had 18 for the Raptors (21-5). "I think everything (Embiid) does is powerful", Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said on Tuesday.

Butler scored nine straight points for the Sixers, but it barely made a dent in the Raptors' lead. Using Pascal Siakam with the reserve unit and running the offense through him and Delon Wright, the Raptors bench generated a run to start the frame that took a solid lead for the team.

They don't make two-way players much better than these two.

The Pentagon branded the flight "extraordinary" in a statement , saying it took place under the Open Skies Treaty. Pahon said the plane had 17-member crew from the 55th Wing based at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska.

Then, halfway through the frame, the starters for the Raptors returned and sealed the game with their defense, keeping it from getting close the rest of the way.

"He fills that big void for them, and he's serious about playing defence and that rubs off on the other guys and that really improves them as a team", Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said on Wednesday.

"We gave ourselves a chance to win with our effort but the execution just wasn't there", 76ers guard JJ Redick said. "For me, I come here and do my job". "They gave us a really good boost and we came back, tried to do everything we can to get a win, but it kind of got away from us".
