Philly's Joel Embiid saw only 28 minutes in Game 3, due to a nagging knee injury, but nonetheless exploded for 33 points, his personal playoff career high, and 10 rebounds — as well as five blocked shots — during his abbreviated stint, according to NBA.com.

While Leonard has lived up to expectations for the Raptors, Toronto will need more from his teammates to pull even in the series on Philly's home court — particularly from Philadelphia native Kyle Lowry, who scored on just two of 10 shots from the floor, missing all four three-point shots that he put up, according to CBS Sports.
