Details and Personal Analysis
A game that began tight and that change of leadership in the scoreboard on several occasions, while the confrontation passed, but in the closing the depth of the bank of the Raptors was a key factor like Kawhi Leonard who made a great game showing his offensive power, 76ers were short of arguments in the fourth final and Toronto Raptors gets a great victory at home.
Kawhi Leonard 36 Pts. 9 Reb.
