Raptors' Kyle Lowry says thumb popped out during Game 7 victory
Vibes and Sounds on the Eve of Game 7
13 May, 2019, 11:16
Instead of having to play a Game 7 on the road, this year's edition of the Raptors will be at home. It sends the Raps to the Eastern Conference finals for just the second time in franchise history.
While Leonard's clutch game-winning shot in Game 7 will be the talking point, his ability to grind it out during the win was impressive. It was a blessing to be able to get to that point and make that shot and feel that moment.
At this point in the series, both teams know the game plans and both teams know each other. The 76ers have outscored the Raptors by 80 points in 192 minutes with Embiid on the floor in this series, and the Raptors have outscored the 76ers by 97 points in the 96 minutes that he's been on the bench.
The turnovers and inability to clean the offensive glass helped the Raptors take a 16-6 advantage in fast break points and a 38-26 edge in points in the paint. Toronto trailed by eight after the opening quarter and by 15 at the half.
Serge Ibaka left Philadelphia after the Raptors' Game 6 loss on Thursday determined to play better.
Marc Gasol, Fred VanVleet and Danny Green, meanwhile, combined for 13 points. "While part of that stems from Philadelphia's extra size, with 6'10" Ben Simmons at point guard, much of it has been simply a lack of effort on Toronto's part.
Lowry was back in to the start the second, but he jammed his left thumb on a play, and left for the locker-room as the crowd held its breath. Live streaming will be available a few minutes before tip-off on the?NBA streams subreddit.

Philadelphia has several long defenders who can contest shots from afar, sure, but the Raptors' shooting has been ridiculously bad despite getting so many good looks in this series. Lowry began scoring too.
Butler is the calming influence on a Sixers team with young stars in Simmons and Embiid.
Of course, Embiid's future success will be tied to many decisions that need to be made by the Sixers, starting this summer. Nikola Jokic had a triple-double 21 points, 15 rebounds, 10 assists in that game for the Nuggets, and coach Michael Malone is fond of saying his team has the best home-court advantage in the National Basketball Association.
"Beyond the uncertain fates of [Jimmy] Butler, [Tobias] Harris and the sharpshooting J.J. Redick, rumblings in league coaching circles have grown louder by the day that 76ers Coach Brett Brown needs an N.B.A. finals berth to keep his job".
The foes played tug-of-war for the lead in the closing quarter - Embiid playing huge, Jimmy Butler hitting the game-tying bucket in the dying seconds on his 16-point night. Kawhi Leonard leads the team in the postseason by pouring in 31 points plus 8.5 rebounds per game.
"Losing the game that way", Embiid said when asked about his show of emotion.
