On Tuesday, December 29th, the Toronto Raptors will tip-off versus the Philadelphia 76ers in the first meeting between the Atlantic Division rivals of the 2020-21 season.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Raptors taking three out of the four contests. The Raptors hold the all-time record having won 57 of the 96 matches between the squads.
It’s been a rough start to the season for the Raptors who had to move to Tampa Bay to play because of Canadian border restrictions due to the pandemic.

They’ve yet to win a game despite holding a double-digit lead versus the Pelicans and a late lead over the Spurs. Head coach Nick Nurse was demonstratively angry at the officials at the end of the Spurs game citing an iffy offensive foul call on Siakam at game end.
This followed the Pelicans match where only 12 free throws in total were awarded, and reserve player Norman Powell took eight despite him not being the most aggressive Raptors player in the match.
The loss in San Antonio wasted solid performances by several Raptors. Fred VanVleet led the scoring with 27 points and came one assist shy of a double-double although three other Raptors did register that mark.
Pascal Siakam with 16 points, 15 rebounds plus eight assists, Kyle Lowry with 16 points and 10 assists, and Chris Boucher with 22 points and 10 rebounds plus seven blocks.
Aron Baynes (13) and OG Anunoby (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Patrick McCaw remains out healing from offseason knee surgery.
New head coach Doc Rivers effect was on display early as the 76ers collected two easy victories over the Wizards and Knicks. Yet, their first defeat to the Cavaliers was a 94-118 rout.
In the loss, Joel Embiid didn’t play due to back tightness and his squad struggled to find offense without him but the lack of defensive intensity was equally problematic.
Tobias Harris led his team with 16 points, nine rebounds, and five assists. Ben Simmons offered 15 points, six rebounds, and four assists.
Of the other 12 players who garnered playing time in the match, Mike Scott was the only other double-figure scorer with 12.
Simmons’ status for Tuesday is questionable.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
The 76ers have shown early they could be one of the best defensive squads in the NBA. Conversely, the Raptors who’ve historically been a top-five defense haven’t completely worked out their defensive sets and schemes.
It could just be the growing pains of replacing Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol with Aron Baynes and Chris Boucher.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers ATS
Toronto is desperate for a win while the Sixers want to bounce back from a sub-par effort. That should equate to a close competitive game.
Embiid’s presence is a huge factor – if he plays I lean toward Philly but if he’s out Toronto will take advantage.
