The Philadelphia 76ers stepped up in Toronto and defeated the Raptors in Game 2 (89-94) to tie the series (1-1).
The visitors were in front for the majority of the night and led by as many as 19 points. Yet, the hosts came back and made it an one possession game late in the third quarter.
But, Philadelphia stood tall in the final 10 minutes of the game and sealed the deal, despite Toronto’s late effort to “steal” the victory.
Five players scored in double figures for the winners, with Jimmy Butler leading the way with a team-high 30 points and 11 rebounds.
Kawhi Leonard posted a game-high 35 points for the losing squad, while Pascal Siakam and Kyle Lowry added 21 and 20 points, respectively.
Game 3 will be played in Philadelphia on Thursday (02/05).
