Game 1 of Raptors-76ers (Athletes Unfiltered)

The Toronto Raptors made a statement in Game 1 of their second-round series with the Philadelphia 76ers, beating them by a final score of 108-95.

Kawhi Leonard was spectacular in the win, scoring a playoff career-high 45 points on 16-for-23 shooting from the field. The only player who has ever scored more points in a playoff game in a Raptors uniform is Vince Carter, who exploded for 50 points against the 76ers back in 2001.

The 76ers, meanwhile, struggled all game long. Joel Embiid was limited to 16 points, Jimmy Butler missed eight of his 12 shot attempts, Tobias Harris turned the ball over five times and Ben Simmons finished with only three assists.
