The 76ers evened their second round series against the Raptors at a game apiece on Monday night with a 94-89 win. Joel Embiid wasn’t dominant self during the Game 2 win and with good reason.
After the game, Embiid revealed that he had been dealing with the “sh*ts” prior to the game. Luckily for the Sixers they have multiple scorers and Jimmy Butler stepped up with a 30 point game.

Sh*ts or no sh*ts, the Sixers will take the win. You never want to drop the first two games of a series, although they are playing the Raptors and the Drake curse will eventually bite them.
