"I don't know and if I did know I wouldn't tell you because we need him to keep doing it," Fred VanVleet said when asked about how Gasol has been so successful against Embiid. "I don't know if you can count on (Embiid) going scoreless most nights but we will sure take it." With the win, the Raptors improve to 12-4 on the season. They're now 1.5 games ahead of the 76ers in the standings. NBA Replay HD The Toronto Raptors moved to 12-4 on the season with a gutsy 101-96 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, who entered the game on a four-game winning streak. Pascal Siakam paced Toronto with 25 points (on 9-for-19 shooting) to go along with seven rebounds and three assists, while Fred VanVleet continued his solid play with 24 points, eight assists, and two steals.
The Raptors dug deep for this one as they were without six players while the Sixers were only without Kyle O'Quinn. NBA Replay HD Josh Richardson led the way for Philadelphia with 25 points, Tobias Harris added 18 points (on 7-for-17 shooting) and Ben Simmons came close to recording his second triple-double of the season with 10 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists, although he did commit a season-high seven turnovers. In perhaps the most shocking development, Joel Embiid was held scoreless for the first time in his career in 32 minutes of action - more on him later.
