The Toronto Raptors seem to be in control of their series against the Philadelphia 76ers. Tuesday night’s contest between the two teams in Game 5 ended with the Raptors routing Philadelphia, 125-89.
Kawhi Leonard was dominant, scoring 21 points to go with 14 rebounds, four assists and two steals. Leonard also had what was one of the most in emphatic moments of the game in the closing seconds of the second half.
Leonard appears to have come alive after his “load management” saga that unfurled over the course of the regular season.
Leonard’s playoff mode has been activated, and if Toronto wins out we could be in store for incredible Eastern Conference matchup between him and Giannis Antetokounmpo should the Milwaukee Bucks advance.
Toronto now leads, 3-2.
