The Philadelphia 76ers are probably the more talented team on paper, but they’re not playing well through 5 contests, and they’re getting crushed defensively. The Toronto Raptors are always a tough out at home, and they just beat the 76ers by 10 points on Wednesday. In the winning effort, the Raptors shot 54.8 percent from the field and made 16 threes. I’ll gladly lay the bucket with the home team.
