The Toronto Raptors could earn only their second berth in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals since joining the league as an expansion team in 1995, per Basketball Reference, if they can complete a turnaround in the seven-game series with the Philadelphia 76ers after falling behind 2-1. To do that, the Raptors need a road win — their second of the semifinal series — when they travel to Philadelphia to take on the Sixers in Game 6.
As for Philadelphia, they will need big man Joel Embiid to recover from the illness that hampered his play and restricted him to just 13 points in Game 5, when he takes the court for the do-or-die contest that will live stream from Philadelphia.

“Like I said before, we’re going to ride or die with big fella,” Sixers guard Jimmy Butler told NBA.com. “Everybody around this locker room knows that, everybody in the world should know it, the fans should know it. We’ll be just fine, we’re going to keep doing what we’re doing, encouraging him to keep battling through all injury, through all sickness and we’re here with him.”
