Toronto Raptors analysis
Losing in the offseason who was by far your best player is not easy. However, the team led by Nick Nurse has started the season well, strong, with certain adjustments, and has become a team with a brutal collective operation, rather than depending on what Kawhi Leonard could do.
Now, with the pivot, Pascal Siakam in command (25.7 ppg, 8.2 rpg and 4.1 apg), they have in their hands a young man who made a quality leap the previous year, and is giving an even bigger one this season, So it is consolidating itself as the face of the franchise.
In the guard Kyle Lowry, the Raptors have an all-star that contributes 21.8 points per game, 6.5 assists, something that, combined to 18.1 points plus 7.7 assists that averages, also guard Fred VanVleet, makes an explosive backcourt, able to move the ball, since both are great shooters from the perimeter.
As for his biggest men, Siakam is of course the protagonist, but to have experienced players such as power forward Marc Gasol, power forward Serge Ibaka and power forward, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, who arrived in free agency , help not only to protect the paint with excellent defense, but to close tight encounters.
This Toronto team is a problem, they know how to defend, they attack effectively and varied, and they are the current champions, who want to prove that they were more than just a shadow of the mega star in the NBA. Oh, and by the way, they are very well directed, it is a very stable franchise and its panorama is going to fight for the championship.
Philadelphia 76ers analysis
The Philadelphia team is now in its third year with high aspirations at a conference that is mostly weak. Time is running out before thinking about millionaire renovations and they have the ideal squad – in terms of talent – to make a season that sees them fighting the title.
They lack perimeter play, the team averages 35% from the line of three, which is not bad, but there is no specialist behind the 3 point line, when closing games, it is a big problem.
At this moment, it is clear that the star, above the other figures of the team, is the center Joel Embiid. This guy is an animal, averaging 22.8 points per game, 11.7 rebounds plus 1.4 caps, Embiid is an unstoppable force. It is a weapon that works both in the pick-and-roll, in the pick-and-pop and in isolation where you can post, take advantage of its size to dominate in the low post. If health is favorable – which is a great dilemma for Embiid -, the Sixers team gave a very favorable panorama.
The team has a lot of talent, not as much depth, in a season as long as the NBA, that can affect. The accumulated fatigue as in injuries, where not only Embiid, but other players have had problems. This, along with the low turnover without a sixth man of weight, is the great doubt generated by this team. That said, talent is undeniable. On paper, they must go for long.
