Raptors advance to Eastern Conference Finals after Game 7 win against Sixers

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown looks on from courtside during the first half of Game 1 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series against the Toronto Raptors in Toronto Saturday

The 76ers are reportedly contemplating firing coach Brett Brown should he not lead the team to the NBA Finals this year. More

Neither team led by more than five points for the last quarter and a half, and Raptors star Kawhi Leonard dramatically ended the game with a bouncing buzzer-beater that hung in the air for what felt like minutes.

Philadelphia were lead by Embiid's 21 points, while JJ Redick (17), Jimmy Butler (16), Tobias Harris (15) and Ben Simmons (13) all played well. For most of this game, both team's struggled to generate consistent offense.

The Raptors couldn't buy a shot during that stretch.

Drake has had an ongoing, if light-hearted, beef with the 76ers for some time and used his next post to troll celebrity Philadelphia fans including comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Meek Mill.

Kyle Lowry was talking in Toronto on Saturday, discussing any number of topics, offering eloquent answers to every question that came his way.

The Raptors regained the lead off of a layup from Lowry and then extended it to three following an incredible steal and assist from - you guessed it - Lowry. And that's exactly what happened following the Sixers' 92-90 loss to the Raptors in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Sunday night. But the BEST player to ever wear a Raptor uniform is 2018-2019 Kawhi Leonard. Siakam had 11 points and 11 rebounds. Philadelphia shot 46.1 percent from the field, including 10 of 28 from three-point range, and dominated the glass 52-34 to help offset 18 turnovers.

Kawhi Leonard has been far and away the best player for either team over the last six games.

Embiid and the Sixers will undoubtedly be back in the postseason in the near future, and when they are, they will have an experience bank to utilize, as they will be able to apply lessons learned from this series. If you believe greatest Raptor should belong to a player with more career achievements and longevity, that's fair.

The Raptors needed absolutely everything out of Leonard and he delivered, as he has all season long. Toronto went 0 for 8 from 3-point range in the first quarter.

The Raptors are 32-9 on their home court.

Ibaka made an impact in other areas as well, pulling down eight rebounds - four of which were on the offensive glass - and dishing out three assists.

Each of the 76ers' starters were in double-figures in points.

After a couple of ugly performances in Games 4 and 5, Philadelphia bounced back in a big way in Game 6 at home, picking up a 112-101 victory to force Game 7.

Brown took over during the bleakest part of the 76ers' rebuild.

The shot also sent social media into a frenzy with many people celebrating Leonard's heroics. Denver is aiming to become the fifth team in the current playoff format to win Game 7s in each of the first two playoff rounds joining Toronto in 2016, Boston in 2008, Phoenix in 2006 and Dallas in 2003.
