10 things: The Raptors are unlucky to be trailing the 76ers

Here are 10 things to remember from the Raptors' 103-88 win over the 76ers in Game 5.

The Raptors have outplayed the Sixers in the last three games, so the result in Game 5 came as no surprise.

The Raptors have improved their health and made key adjustments, and the Sixers are reeling despite leading the series 3-2 thanks to Joel Embiid's heroic shot in Game 3.

The pressure is back on the Sixers, who have the exact personnel you want if you want to make playoff history.

Two — The Raptors' plan was obvious, as their all-forward lineup swung the balance in Game 4.

Despite losing that game, the Sixers made no adjustments in Game5, which the Raptors won despite being down 2-0.

To keep the Sixers' guards from downhilling, the Raptors doubled Embiid until he gassed out, leaving Danny Green or Matisse Thybulle open.
