Embiid’s 3-pointer winner in OT helps 76ers take 3-0 lead

ANKARA – Philadelphia 76ers beat Toronto Raptors 104-101 with Joel Embiid’s last second three-pointer in the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs on Thursday.

The 28-year-old, who led the Sixers with 33 points and 13 rebounds against the Raptors, dropped the winning three-pointer with 0.8 seconds left in overtime at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.

“Great play call. Tobias set an amazing screen, Danny threw a great pass,” Embiid said about the finisher, “All I had to do was finish, and I’m glad I did.”

“It felt great but the job’s not done. We’ve got to get one more,” he added.

OG Anunoby dropped 26 points, while Gary Trent Jr. had 24 points for the Raptors.

The Sixers now lead the NBA Eastern Conference playoff series 3-0 against Raptors.

In other playoff games, the Boston Celtics defeated Brooklyn Nets, 114-107, to take a 2-0 lead.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls tied the series 1-1 after a 114-110 victory against Milwaukee Bucks. (Anadolu)
