Why the 76ers can cover

Embiid is the centerpiece for the Sixers, but he’s getting a lot of help in the NBA playoffs 2022. Guard James Harden has the ability to dominate both from the arc and driving to the lane. Harden has great court vision and sets his teammates with regularity. The 10-time All-Star is an elite passer and distributor while being a solid rebounder. Harden averages 19.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 9.8 assists per game. In his last game, the Arizona State product logged 22 points, five rebounds and nine assists.

Forward Tobias Harris is a scoring threat with a nice-looking jumper. Harris can create his own offense and get a bucket at all three levels. The Tennessee product is averaging 18 points, 9.8 rebounds and is shooting 53 percent from deep. Harris has recorded three straight double-doubles, including 15 points and 11 rebounds in his last outing.

Why the Raptors can cover

Forward Pascal Siakam is long, quick, and can move well for a big man. Siakam has good footwork and runs the floor for constant put-backs and dunks. The 2020 All-Star has a solid jumper and shows great effort on the defensive end. Siakam is averaging 22.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. In his last outing, he totaled 34 points, eight rebounds and five assists.

Forward OG Anunoby is a top-tier defender who uses his wingspan, quickness and explosiveness to beat his opponents to their spots. Anunoby is also a solid leaper with a consistent jump shot. The Indiana product is second on the team in scoring (20.8) with 4.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. He’s scored 20-plus three of the four games thus far, including 26 points, five rebounds and four assists in Game 3.
