Pascal Siakam and the Toronto Raptors are returning to Wells Fargo Center for Monday's Game 5. The Raptors were faced with a different challenge on Monday, as standout guard Fred VanVleet was unavailable to play and the 76ers were expected to play in front of their home crowd. In the end, none of the obstacles erupted the Raptors, with Toronto leading for the majority of the 103-88 victory that resulted in a Game 6 return in Canada.

The Raptors gave up a solid first half performance, which started right away. Toronto scored eight of the first nine shots in the opening quarter, taking a 18-9 lead behind the game.
