The 76ers took Game 6 over the Raptors 112-101 on Thursday night. The win forces the greatest thing in sports, a win or go home Game 7.
Sixers big man Joel Embiid had a little more energy during the game. He dropped 17 points, pulled down 12 rebounds and punched Marc Gasol in the face.

Was it worthy of a Flagrant 1? Probably not, but any shot above the neck these days gets called with or without intent.
The best part of the punch to the face was Embiid acting like he had no idea why the whistle was blown. It might not have been on purpose, but he absolutely knows he landed a shot to Gasol’s face.
