Jimmy Butler NBAThe game started off with a back and forth battle through to the end of the first quarter, but the Sixers started to lose control early in the second quarter and things would only get worse from there.

Joel Embiid was definitely not himself, with only five points and three turn overs in the first 12 minutes. He was once again suffering with an illness and it seemed to really take him off his game.

Jimmy Butler was once again his normal aggressiveness self, leading the team in points and overall effort. JJ Redick couldn’t get open even if he tried and Ben Simmons kept Kawhi Leonard in check for most of the game, but was once again a no-show on offense. He continues to refuse to attack the lane which is baffling because of how dominate he can be. The Raptors shot 4-of-9 from deep in the first quarter, while the Sixers went 0-of-8.
