The Philadelphia 76ers picked up a relatively easy Game 2 win over the Toronto Raptors, leading by as many as 29. The Sixers hold a 2-0 series lead as the scene shifts to Toronto for Game 3 of the first-round series on Wednesday.

Joel Embiid has been dominant in the first couple of games in the series. After dropping 31 points on 9-for-16 shooting and 11 rebounds on Monday, he has 10 games of 30 points and 10 rebounds in the playoffs. The only player who has more such games in Philadelphia franchise playoff history is the great Wilt Chamberlain, who had 14.

Give Embiid credit, the Raptors began to get physical with him at the beginning of Game 2, and they knocked him down a bit. But he and the team both responded pretty well; he wanted to set the tone. He must bring the same focus on the road in Game 3.
