On Sunday night, the Philadelphia 76ers will have a hard time picking up their first win as they have to go on the road to face the red-hot Toronto Raptors. The Raptors were able to win all four of their games against Philadelphia last season.
Against the Chicago Bulls on Friday, the 76ers scored 39 fourth-quarter points, but it wasn't enough as they lost the game 118-115. The difference in that game came at the free throw line, as the 76ers were only able to make 17 of their 25 attempts.
The 76ers are only scoring 94.2 points per game this year while giving up 103.8 points per game to their opponents. Shooting guard Tony Wroten has had a pretty good start to the season by scoring 22.5 points per game and seven assists per game. Center Nerlens Noel has had a rough start to the season by averaging just 7.2 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.
The Raptors won their third game in a row on Friday when they blew out the Washington Wizards 103-84 at home. Their defense was excellent in that game, as the Wizards were only able to make 36 percent of their shots.
Through six games, the Raptors are near the top of the league in scoring with 105.3 points per game. Shooting guard DeMar DeRozan has had a good start to the year by averaging a team-high 22.5 points per game and 2.3 steals per game. Point guard Kyle Lowry has averaged 18.5 points and six assists per game so far this season.
