76ers storm past Raptors, force Game 7

From Near and Far Team Receiving Strong Show of Support

Jimmy Butler (an efficient 25 points, eight assists and six rebounds in Game 6) and Joel Embiid (17 points, 12 rebounds and a gaudy plus-40) provide Philadelphia release valves on the wing and in the post, respectively.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski has said he believes Toronto has a real chance to keep Leonard, and he doesn't believe Game 7 will be a deciding factor. The Sixers can't hope for his slack to be picked up by someone else in such an important game.

The Raptors captured their first series win in franchise history by edging the host Knicks in the final game of a best-of-five series. The Raptors probably lost by nearly 30 by the time the Sixers got bored in the fourth quarter and the benches of both teams were called into action.

Vince Carter led the Raptors with 27 points. "It's do or die, win or go home, really".

Toronto made just 17.6 percent of its 17 three-point attempts in the first half and frequently ran into trouble on the boards with eight offensive rebounds allowed.

Childs forced up a desperation shot that missed with seven seconds left, thinking the Raptors were down by four instead of three.

Raptors: Meanwhile, Toronto has ridden the coattails of Kawhi Leonard throughout this series.

Former Raptor Corliss Williamson had 23 points for the Pistons. Though the Sixers still committed 18 turnovers in Game 6, the visitors could only turn those into 21 points, nothing to write home about and the fast break points difference was 16-11 in Philadelphia's favour.

"I just came out aggressive, as they tell me to be all the time", said Butler.

The series was full of drama.

"I mean, tonight I feel like we messed up sometimes on transition and defence; we didn't know down open shots early, you know, and they played well", said Leonard, who scored 29 points on 9-of-20 shooting. Each game (in the series), a young player grew and learned something.

While the score wasn't as close as the final margin indicates, it still wasn't anywhere near to the mollywopping handed by the Raptors in Tuesday's 125-89 Game 5.

The team threw in two "DeMar DeRozan specials" for good measure - make from the corner while stepping on the line, turning them into two-pointers.

"Got the monkey off our back, more than anything, with these past couple of years". "He's 22 years old".

Iran's president calls US political, economic pressures "all-out war"
Despite Iran's announced deadline to pull from the remainder of the bargain, there were signs that Tehran is prepared to speak. Deprived of its oil revenue, its military spending cuts after reaching a summit in 2017, Hook explained.

"It just happened. A lot of things like that happen".

"His game, as he grows his shot and tries to get a better command of his position, and deals with the stage of the National Basketball Association playoffs, shame on us for thinking he's gonna be like this all day, every day, here he is and he's going to knock it out of the park".

IN cut a 16-point deficit to three with less than three minutes left, but the Raptors wouldn't let it slip away. "We have to do everything we need to do to win the game".

In an eerily similar situation to 2019, the 2001 76ers moved on to the Eastern Conference Finals to play the Milwaukee Bucks.

Lowry had arguably his best game in a Raptors uniform, finishing with 35 points.

The Raptors star on the day was lost in thought.

"If I've got to play 45 minutes and push myself out there, then that's what I got to do", he said.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Both diseases have grave underlying biological and genetic causes, yet we tend to ignorantly toss around mental health terms. It was emulated after a similar mental health research scholarship launched in 2009 by CMHA Newfoundland and Labrador.

The problem isn't just that the Raptors weren't able to capitalize on those opportunities.
