Raptors' Pascal Siakam doubtful for Game 4

Siakam has not only been dropping 20 points per game this postseason, but he has been one of the main reasons that Tobias Harris has not carried over his hot shooting from the first to the second round. Joel Embiid is averaging 21.4 points and 10.8 rebounds while Jimmy Butler is averaging 18.9 points and 5.1 assists. Kyle Lowry is the third double-digit scorer and Marc Gasol is grabbing 5.3 rebounds. I think this is Clippers and Raptors. Redick stood out in both of the Sixers' home games so far in this series, combining for 34 points on 7 for 13 shooting from 3-point territory.

On the other end, the Sixers only made five field goals in the entire fourth quarter, unable to survive a prolonged drought despite an imperfect Raptors showing.

"We needed some punch around the roster", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. Guarding Leonard is no easy task, but the Raptors' All-Star commended Ben Simmons for the defense he's played in the series.

Leonard won an National Basketball Association championship with the Spurs in his third year in the league.

Embiid lacked aggression, missed important free throws down the stretch and was in visible discomfort at certain points. He can be a hard player to read but it seemed obvious that he was disappointed in his teammates after their Game 3 loss. It's a borderline must-win for Philadelphia, though Toronto will undoubtedly (and deservedly) enter the game as favorites. "The close games we're in, the games we won, we held them under 100 points, and that's what we've gotta do". His size appeared to bother Leonard here and there as the Raptors' star turned it over seven times.

Palestinian medical officials reported 23 deaths, including at least nine militants as well as two pregnant women and two babies. For residents in Gaza, the escalation comes a day before the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins in the territory on Monday.

Trump and Putin Catch Up On the Phone, Talk Mueller Report
She said during the call Trump reiterated the "need and importance of Russian Federation stepping up and continuing to help". The Kremlin said the two sides confirmed they meant to "activate dialogue in various spheres, including strategic security".

Leonard has covered Toronto's warts all series, making up ground lost by the Raptors' awful supporting cast.

"He's doing a great job", Leonard said of Simmons.

Leonard's signature possession of the game occurred with the Raptors leading by one point with just more than a minute to go in regulation.

The Raptors, who were the best three-point team in the league heading into the post-season, shot just 2-for-11 from long distance in the first quarter, but still went up by 11 eight minutes into the game. "They ended up switching". And there's reason to believe the Sixers have a better chance than most lower-seeded teams caught in a 2-2 tie, but it's a good representation of just how much was at stake on Sunday in South Philadelphia.

Leonard said that upon release of the ball, he wanted to ensure the shot didn't fall short, remembering some unsuccessful attempts that did. "It'd be nice if he could throw one or two a game to, because again the penetration from whoever is going to draw a lot of help, as it should and those guys are kind of safety valves behind the arc and if they're all alone out there we want them to step in and take them, either one of them".
