Back in action for the second straight preseason game against the Toronto Raptors, the 76ers won 125-113 at home on Thursday night.

With Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris back in the mix, the Sixers got a balanced effort all around that saw eight players score in double figures. The team shot 18-for-37 (.486)  from 3-point range, with 12 of those threes coming in the first half. After swiping 16 steals in Monday’s game, the Sixers recorded 14 steals in the rematch.

Matisse Thybulle missed the game for the Sixers due to right shoulder soreness.
