The Philadelphia 76ers are in Tampa Bay once again for a matchup against the Toronto Raptors. Can they avenge their Sunday Loss?
After Sunday’s disappointing loss against the Toronto Raptors, the Sixers should be extremely motivated to bounce back. Tobias Harris, in particular, is undoubtedly unhappy with his previous game so expect him to go to work early tonight.
It’s a light report for the Sixers today as the only player listed at the moment is Seth Curry. As of now, Curry is listed as probable with an ankle injury.
Curry will likely play, but the bigger question is if he’s 100%. This ankle injury has been a lingering one for Curry, and we’ve seen it affect his play severely. Should that be the case, expect the entire Sixers offense to suffer for it.
The Raptors also have a shortlist for tonight’s game as Kyle Lowry is the lone name appearing. Lowry is still dealing with a lingering thumb injury that has kept him out of the previous three games for Toronto.
In that time, the Raptors are undefeated, and Lowry is reportedly has been considered to be made potentially available in trade talks. If Lowry is still feeling the effects of his thumb injury, then likely the Raptors wouldn’t push him to play and jeopardize any potential trade value.
Philadelphia 76ers Tip-Off
Tip-off is at 7:30 PM EST tonight, and you can watch the game on NBC Sports Philadelphia or on NBA League Pass. You can also listen live as always at 97.5 FM, the Fanatic.
The Philadelphia 76ers should be fired up for this game and look to take the lead early and hold it. The Raptors are shooting up the standings, and it’s up to the Sixers to put a stop to it.
And is it too much to ask for somebody to please guard Chris Boucher?
