Tonight at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Toronto Raptors 93-83. The Sixers record now improves to 4-2 on the season and they complete their mini road trip with a 3-0 record as well.
Tonight’s game was won in the second quarter by the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers outscored the Raptors in the quarter 32-7. From that point on the Sixers were able to hold on to their lead and never looked back. The leading scorers for the Sixers tonight were Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday, and Nick Young. All of them had 16 points in tonight’s contest.
Dorell Wright also had a good game tonight as he had 15 points in 27 minutes of game action. 12 of those 15 points would come off of three pointers as he was 4 of 8 from downtown.
The leading scorer for the Raptors was Andrea Bargnani who had 23 points and five rebounds. Sixer fans also got to see Raptors’ rookie Jonas Valanciunas tonight. He was serviceable as he had 8 points and 8 rebounds. Overlooked in this game was Raptors point guard Jose Calderon as he had a double-double consisting of 14 points and 11 rebounds.
The Sixers will get a well deserved break on Sunday, as they have a game on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center versus Brandon Jennings and the Milwaukee Bucks.
