76ers down Raptors, force Game 7

Drake, Raptors fans mock Joel Embiid's airplane celebration (VIDEOS)

The Sixers are now battling the Toronto Raptors in the second round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

And then on Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center, Embiid was a world-destroying super-villain, scoring baskets and collecting fouls inside the paint, draining shots from beyond the three-point line, and punctuating the Sixers' Game 3 win with a mix of blocks, dunks and taunts that sent the Philly fans into bedlam.

With Game 5 ahead in Toronto on Tuesday night, the Sixers are no longer saying how Embiid is feeling.

Toronto leads 3-2. Game 6, 8 p.m. EDT, ESPN.

Jimmy Butler scored 25 points in a 112-101 victory for the Sixers to force a seventh game, with the victor set to face the Milwaukee Bucks. Even a lacklustre National Basketball Association game is likely to offer up plays that get you out of your seat.

PlayStation's State of Play returns with big news on Thursday
It's expected to be a quick show at just 10 minutes of run time, so it's likely we won't be seeing much more than that. PlayStation Worldwide Studios will present an extended look at the " MediEvil " remake for the PlayStation 4 .

Acknowledging the pressure his team faced Thursday, Sixers coach Brett Brown, who has heard his owner's expectation to advance further than the second round loud and clear, said the collective mindset was apparent. Embiid was limited to 11 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, numbers the Raptors will live with for the remainder of the series if they can get them. It's tough. I guess I get one more and I'm gone for one game. "If I've got to play 45 minutes and push myself out there, that's what I'll do".

Brown believes Simmons is still in the midst of his growth as a player, and well on track to be the transcendent point guard his potential has indicated he could be for some time.

"We're not gonna win without you guys". Still, he's hitting off-balanced shot after off-balanced shot all series. It won't be the popular pick, and I see this game staying close all the way through with the Sixers pulling away late. "You can see he doesn't have emotions. When things are going good, he keeps talking with us", Jokic said. I didn't mean to do it.

PRESSURE IS ON: Blazers guards Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, who were a combined minus-47 in Game 5. "Our mindset is just to get the next one, take care of home, and make it back here".
