Wednesday, December 5 the Philadelphia 76ers play the top ranked Toronto Raptors for the second time of the 2018-19 regular season. The 76ers last played Sunday when they defeated the Memphis Grizzlies to increase their league leading home court record to 13-1.
The Raptors played Monday losing to the Denver Nuggets in a closely contested match the Nuggets won.
Last season, the Raptors won the season series three games to four and took the initial match this season in an oust. The Raptors hold the all-time record having bested the 76ers in 52 of their 89 matches.
Since Jimmy Butler joined the 76ers they have seemed unbeatable registering an 8-2 record.
More importantly, Butler has won two games for the 76ers on the last shot of the game. Clearly, Butler is now the closer for the team given his fourth quarter prowess.
If there is a concern it’s the fact the 76ers still haven’t been able to apply their same effectiveness in road matches. Since the trade Philly has played three road matches. They lost in Orlando, took overtime to win in Charlotte and required one of those patented game winning clutch time Butler shots in Brooklyn.
After leaving a team embroiled in drama, Butler is likely thrilled the conflict in Philly centers around anyone but him. The Markelle Fultz situation is easily fulfilling that agenda as he refuses to play while visiting specialist for opinions on his maladies.
The other key issue with Philly is the now seeming lack of depth and myriad of injured players on the roster. Wilson Chandler (quadricep) and Demetrius Jackson (sprained toe) are questionable for Wednesday.
The trio of Jonah Bolden (shin), Justin Patton (foot) and Zhaire Smith (foot/food allergy) are all out indefinitely.
The first time these teams met the Raptors were coming off a blowout loss the night prior in Milwaukee. Toronto took out their anger on the Sixers.
Jimmy Butler has often been a Raptors killer however, so this match could prove to be a dogfight. If there are positives to take from the loss to Denver it was the effort of Toronto’s reserves who’ve struggled to find their chemistry this season without Siakam in the mix
C.J. Miles specifically is still in search of his perimeter stroke while OG Anunoby adjusts to playing off the bench instead of with the starters. This unit is finally gaining some symmetry though.
Another missing reserve is Norm Powell who continues to rehab a shoulder injury expecting to return mid December.
