Ben Simmons' Philadelphia 76ers in loss to Toronto Raptors

Ben Simmons' Philadelphia 76ers in loss to Toronto Raptors

A authoritative slam from Joel Embiid (10 pts, 12 reb, 5 ast, 2 blk) nudged the Sixers back ahead, but Raptors back-up big man Jonas Valanciunas keyed a 13-2 spurt by Toronto's bench that gave them control for good.

"I try to perform every night", he explained.

"We look forward to going up there and using it as an early sort of barometer of where we are", 76ers coach Brett Brown said Tuesday.

"Our bench did an unbelievable job", Toronto guard Kyle Lowry said.

76ers: Embiid's double-double was his league-best 24th. "It's hard to say "Oh, we can stop him', he's just a guy that you must keep a body on, be physical with". He's averaging 39.1 FanDuel points through 21 games overall this season.

Toronto's 17 offensive rebounds were a season high. "If you try to turn it on versus the good teams, it's very hard to do that". Philadelphia is a good, tough opponent, and this wasn't a ideal outing for the Raptors, but it showed how talented this team is that they can fight through those games, even against a good team, and pull out the win. The 76ers committed 11 turnovers in the second quarter. Butler was called for a technical foul in the third quarter and Embiid got one in the fourth.

When a Butler 3-pointer splashed home to give the Sixers a 46-40 lead late in the first half, the prospects were promising.

The Toronto Raptors' trade for Kawhi Leonard has had a positive effect so far.

Leonard answered by scoring the next five points, and Toronto went into the fourth period in front, 78-77. G Malachi Richardson (illness) was inactive. Not only did he tie the game at 46-46 with a vicious dunk, the two-time Defensive Player of the Year came up with the steal that preceded Toronto's first go-ahead basket of the night.

LeBron James' off-season defection from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference has opened a path for teams in the east.

The game drew several celebrities who attended Tuesday's gala for Giants of Africa, the charity of Raptors president Masai Ujiri. The 76ers visit the Detroit Pistons on Friday.
