Much like the last game against the Sixers, Philly hung around before the energy from this group started to create some separation. Wright was terrific, delivering 14 points, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes. He was used to check Ben Simmons at time and was all over the place cutting into passing lanes and funneling attackers into help defenders. Siakam delivered four points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals in 23 minutes and some softer touch (2-of-8 from the field) would’ve helped this line look even better. Poeltl was tasked with slowing Joel Embiid at time and held his ground, picking up six points, five rebounds, two steals and three blocks in 24 minutes of his own. The Raptors have shown a willingness to roll with each of the three when they’re playing well, and as such they all need to be owned in 16-team leagues.
