The Philadelphia 76ers put on their best display so far this post-season and closed off the series against the Toronto Raptors

By Eurohoops team/

Joel Embiid had a dominant display in Game 6 against the Toronto Raptors but he was far from alone as the whole Philadelphia 76ers squad contributed to the 132-97 win that sealed the series 4-2.

Embiid scored 33 points and grabbed ten rebounds while Tyrese Maxey had 25 (eight assists) and James Harden 22 points (15 assists). Tobias Harris was also solid with 19 (11 boards) while Danny Green scored 12 points.

A phenomenal offensive display by the Sixers which couldn’t be matched by the short-handed Raptors. Chris Boucher had 25 points, ten rebounds for the losing side while Pascal Siakam logged 24-7-7 and Garry Trent scored 19. Scottie Barnes had 18 points.

This was the best overall team performance by the Sixers and they will need at least as much when they face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Heat displayed great defensive prowess in the 4-1 series against the Atlanta Hawks during which they consistently smothered Trae Young while Jimmy Butler stepped up whenever the team needed it on both sides.
