The Raptors were also No. 2 in the NBA in turnovers per game (12.5) during the regular season, with top-three marks in live-ball turnovers, fast break points, and second-chance points. Toronto also secured 32.5 percent of available offensive rebounds in 2021-22.
The model also knows the 76ers are the healthier team. Three key pieces are listed as doubtful for Toronto, and Philadelphia scored 1.47 points per possession in Game 1. The 76ers shot 51 percent with only four turnovers in the opener, and Tyrese Maxey exploded with 38 points. Philadelphia also has a legitimate MVP-level player in Joel Embiid, who led the NBA in scoring (30.6 points per game) with top-tier rebounding and defense.
