Simmons Heroics Not Enough For 76ers

Giannis and Kawhi Out for Tonight's Undefeated Bucks-Raptors Matchup Makes Me Sad

The Toronto Raptors will have Kawhi Leonard back in the lineup Tuesday night when they play host to the Philadelphia 76ers. Jonas Valanciunas scored a season-high 23 points and Serge Ibaka had 16 as the Raptors improved to 6-0 at home. The 64 rebounds are the most by an Eastern Conference team this season and are the most the 76ers have recorded in a single game since November 29, 2017 against Washington when they also had 64.

He also missed a road win over the Washington Wizards, which was the second half of games on consecutive nights.

All-Star center Joel Embiid is averaging 26.4 points and 11.7 rebounds and has continued to be a difference maker on both ends.

With the loss, the Sixers (4-4) are now 0-4 on the road this season and saw their losing streak in Toronto reach 12 games.

Promise: Pascal Siakam continues to blossom in his third season. Chris Paul led the scoring for the Rockets with 17 points.

The Celtics (5-2) are now third in the East while the Pistons (4-2) are fourth.

Russell Westbrook and Paul George each scored 32 points, and Oklahoma City used an offensive eruption to open the second half and ultimately overrun visiting Los Angeles.

The high-scoring man of the game for the Sixers also provided arguably the highest energy play of the evening. He has scored at least 30 points twice.

Elsewhere Tuesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers snagged their first win of the season, two days after firing head coach Tyronn Lue.

The Bucks said Monday that "team physicians followed league protocols and consulted the league's neurologist during the evaluation periods" during Saturday's game and that Antetokounmpo "passed his neurological tests that created significant doubt that it was a concussion".

The Cavs were without star forward Kevin Love, who confirmed earlier Tuesday he faces several weeks on the sidelines with a big toe injury on his left foot.

The Raptors were coming off their first loss of the season, dropping an ugly 124-109 decision in Milwaukee the previous night.

76ers: Embiid had 11 rebounds. Willie Cauley-Stein contributed 14 points and 11 rebounds. Leonard hounded him all night, including on a key possession with two minutes left when Leonard ripped the ball away from Simmons to stymie a comeback by the Sixers. (They missed their last six attempts in garbage time of the fourth quarter.) The Raptors, meanwhile, were just 9-45 from beyond the arc and shot just 38.2 percent from the field as a team.

Malik Monk and Nicolas Batum each had 20 points for Charlotte.

Toronto scored 29 points off the Sixers' miscues, which were a consistent issue throughout the evening. He also grabbed seven rebounds. Wall had seven assists and nine turnovers.
