Kawhi Leonard led the Toronto Raptors to a 101-96 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. The series is tied 2-2 with the Raptors going back home with home court advantage.

Leonard hit several key shots down the stretch and led the Toronto Raptors with 39 points and 14 rebounds. Heading into the 4th quarter, the score was tied 75-75 until Leonard decided to take over. With one minute to go and Toronto clinging to a 91-90 lead, Leonard hit a three-pointer over Joel Embiid to put Toronto up by four points. Philadelphia was never able to recover and now is facing a tough task after losing home court advantage. Philadelphia will now have to win two games and are forced to win another game in Toronto if they want to advance in the Eastern Conference finals.

Jimmy Butler led the 76ers with 29 points and 11 rebounds. The 76ers will need Embiid to step up after having a subpar night with 11 points and 8 rebounds. Embiid can dominate on both ends of the floor, but with injuries piling up throughout the season, he may not be 100% healthy. We will have to wait and see how he rebounds for Game 5 on Tuesday in Toronto.
