Obviously the James Harden foul out situation takes on a whole new meaning with five more minutes of free hoops coming— Steve Alexander (@docktora) April 21, 2022
Harden finishes the game with 19 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. He shot 7-13 from the floor and 2-4 from deep, while also being involved in some controversial calls at the end of the game. With Harden out, look for the 76ers to lean on Tyrese Maxey and Danny Green in the backcourt in overtime. Joel Embiid should get the majority of the team’s looks offensively.
The 76ers entered the game as 2-point favorites according to DraftKings Sportsbook. As of this writing, the 76ers are 1.5-point favorites and -150 on the moneyline. The Raptors, who need this game to avoid a 3-0 whole and sure elimination, are listed at +115.
