Doc Rivers Claps Back at Critics Following Second-Straight Loss to Raptors


The Philadelphia 76ers were up 3-0 in their first-round playoff series against the Toronto Raptors going into Game 4 last Saturday.

Similar to their last first-round playoff series, the Sixers couldn’t close out in four games. When the Sixers dropped their Game 4 matchup against the Washington Wizards last postseason, they sealed the deal in the next matchup to advance to the next round.

Unfortunately, they didn’t see similar results this time around. After falling short to the Raptors on Saturday, the Sixers returned home to host the Toronto Raptors for Game 5 on Monday night. Despite being the healthier team, the Sixers couldn’t overcome a Fred VanVleet-less Raptors team.
