Ben Simmons' 76ers fall to Raptors

Nets end 8-game skid by edging Raptors 106-105 in OT At the Buzzer | Butler's Season High Not Enough at Toronto

The 76ers, considered one of the Raptors' biggest threats in the Eastern Conference, have not won in Toronto for six years.

Butler has been red hot since joining Philadelphia after a trade from Minnesota, shooting.485/.405/.819 in fewer minutes than he averaged under grinding Minnesota head coach Tom Thibodeau.

The Raptors' Kawhi Leonard dominated with 36 points and nine rebounds.

Lowry's Toronto Raptors lost 106-105 in overtime to the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night. The 76ers last played Sunday, defeating the Memphis Grizzlies 103-95 at the Wells Fargo Center. Joel Embiid had 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Sixers, whose last win in Toronto was 93-83 on November 10, 2012.

Leonard's dunk gave the Raptors a 15-point lead.

"You've got sort of a sparring partner for Kawhi, and (an) All-Star now on our team", Brown said. The Raptors in past years have been on the other side of these type of games, frequently against Butler, where an opposing star just won't stop hitting tough shots, no matter the defense, and the loss feels inevitable. "We also leave, we feel, a little bit smarter about what it's going to take to beat the best team right now in the National Basketball Association".

Butler scored a season-high 38 points and added 10 rebounds.

He was acquired November 12 with Justin Patton from Minnesota in exchange for Jerryd Bayless, Robert Covington, Dario Saric and a 2022 second-round draft pick.

"I felt betrayed because he felt betrayed because that's my guy, that's my best friend", Lowry said. "If you try to turn it on against the good teams, it's really hard to do that. He's in that conversation for MVP". He's the fourth active player to score 500 or more in his first 20 games with his current team.

The Sixers led for most of the first half, largely because of the Raptors' frightful 3-for-12 shooting from three-point range.

Altria is also in talks to take a minority stake of between 20 percent and 40 percent in Juul, sources told Reuters last month. Several U.S. states have legalized cannabis for medical or recreational use, but pot remains illegal under federal law.

Mention of that impressive record saw Nurse acknowledge that the forward appears to move to another level against other contenders as Toronto improved to 21-5 at the top of the Eastern Conference.

When a Butler 3-pointer splashed home to give the Sixers a 46-40 lead late in the first half, the prospects were promising. We weren't able to do that. "I have got to do a better job, it's on me".

The Raptors hurt themselves Monday with their slow start.

There will be a lot of questions for the Raptors about their shooting lately and how much they've struggled, but it's a good sign the way the team fought through that in this game and found a way to win, despite those troubles. "They wanted to win more than we did". We let them get on a run and then we had to fight back.
