Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction: Joel Embiid Will Be Tough To Stop in the Paint

We are heading back to the six tonight for a battle between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors. If the season ended today, this would be the first-round match-up in the playoffs. The Raptors have stormed up to a number five seed while Philly currently represents the number four seed.

This is a matchup that Philly may not want in the playoffs. Yesterday, a story broke that the 76ers best defender Mattise Thybuhle was ineligible to play in Toronto due to covid restrictions. This would be a massive blow in a series for Philly as Thybuhle is one of the best defenders in all of the NBA.

Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction

The Raptors started the year sluggish but have been able to flip the script to no surprise. This roster has championship DNA led by head coach Nick Nurse. Nurse, who is one of the brightest minds in the game, has done a great job with this raptors team turning them into a playoff team. Fred Vanvleet earned his first all-star appearance this season, and Pascal Siakam has had a great second half of the season.

The 76ers had a lot of drama to stair their season with star Ben Simmons sitting out and forcing the hand of the team to trade him. The trade worked out as they landed all-star guard James Harden. The combination of Joel Embiid and James Harden makes Philly one of the most lethal teams in all of the NBA. The play of second-year guard Tyrese Maxey has been a welcoming sight as he is showing all-star potential.

I am going to back Philly on the short spread tonight. I love this spot for Philly tonight. This is a huge game for them as they want to avoid the Raptors in the first round and work up to the number three seed. The Raptors are a very good defensive team, but I think that Philly will hold a serious advantage in the paint tonight with Embiid. This is a Raptors team that plays without a true center, and this could be problematic tonight. This could be the biggest game so far in the Harden Embiid era for the 76ers so expect them to be well-focused here tonight. This should be a great game tonight let’s stay hot!
