The Sixers overcame a 17-deficit, a five-point first half from their best player, and a general feeling that everything in the world was going wrong to earn a 3-0 series advantage with a 104-101 overtime win Wednesday night over the Raptors at Scotiabank Arena.
Fittingly, as has been the case this entire season, Joel Embiid hauled them across the finish line. Embiid, who’d missed a three-pointer from the left wing on the Sixers’ final regulation possession, made a very difficult, very clutch jumper from near the same spot with 0.8 seconds to go in overtime.
