NBA Playoffs 2022: Toronto Raptors playoff schedule
The Philadelphia 76ers’ 2022 playoff schedule calls for a best-of-seven first-round matchup with the 5-seeded Toronto Raptors.
The 76ers made a huge trade to give themselves a better shot at contending for an NBA title in 2022. Now it’s time to put this trade to the test.
With James Harden on the team, Philadelphia hopes to have found the right partner for Joel Embiid.
The pairing will have to prove themselves against Toronto, the No. 5 seed eager to make a playoff statement.
The 76ers humiliated the Raptors in Game 1, delivering a 131-111 win to start the series on the right foot.
Embiid didn’t have much to offer on offense, with Tyrese Maxey scoring 38 points and Tobias Harris scoring 26. Harden was there to turn the tide with 22 points and 14 assists in his playoff debut for Philadelphia.
What’s next for the series? The 76ers have a Game 2 date Monday night before the series moves to Toronto. Games 3 and 4 take place on Wednesday and Saturday.
