Kawhi ousts Sixers with unprecedented shot

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

After the Raptors got all they could handle in this series from the Sixers, it sets up a date with the Milwaukee Bucks and possible league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. Almost two minutes passed before the next basket, Leonard's long jumper with 1:41 to go that was initially ruled a three, but changed to a two after video review.

Kawhi's highest single-game point total came in Game 1 when he scored 45 points.

Butler made one of two at the line and Leonard missed a pair of jump shots, giving the 76ers the ball down 89-86 with 24.1 seconds remaining.

Kawhi Leonard bounced, bounced, bounced, bounced the Philadelphia 76ers out of the playoffs.

The Raptors took care of the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, 92-90, thanks to a Kawhi Leonard buzzer beater over Joel Embiid.

The 76ers pushed the Raptors to the limit behind strong performances from Joel Embiid (21 points, 11 rebounds), JJ Redick (17 points) and Jimmy Butler (16 points), but it wasn't quite enough.

Leonard scored 41 points on 16-of-39 shooting.

A year after being swept by the New York Knicks in their first ever playoff series, Toronto got their revenge in a close, grind-it-out Game 5 series-clinching win over the same team that eliminated them the year prior to advance to the Conference Semifinals.




Australian Simmons had 13 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Toronto is 1 in scoring defense as they give up 96.5 points per game.

As for his colleagues, Embiid was battling illness, while Simmons is still overwhelmed by hesitancy with regards to picking his shots.

"That was just a great shot", Toronto's Pascal Siakam said of the game-winner. The 76ers are 14 in three pointers per game (9.5) but stand tied for 11 in three-point percentage as they cash in 33.1 percent of their shots from beyond the arc.

Then there's the sheer load of points Leonard has been pouring in for the Raptors, particularly in the second-round series against Philadelphia.

Perhaps one of the only bright spots on offence for the Raptors (other than Kawhi, of course) was the production of Serge Ibaka, who came off the bench to score 17 points in 29 minutes, outproducing the 76ers reserves 17-8 by himself. "I think he's going to be here for a long time".

The pressure is on the Raptors, who are the favorites at home.

DURING THE PLAYOFFS: 76ers: Averaging 110.4 points, 49.2 rebounds, 25.2 assists, 6.6 steals and 5.3 blocks per game while shooting 46.1 percent from the field.

"If you just follow our time in Philadelphia - we win 10 games, we've been through a handful of general managers, ping pong balls, different draft picks", Brown said.
