The 76ers couldn't sweep the series this weekend. The Sixers struggled to win Game 4 against the Toronto Raptors on Saturday afternoon.

The Sixers and Raptors returned to South Philly on Monday night, 3-1 up. A win in Game 5 would've advanced the Sixers.

A loss would put the Raptors back in the series with a game on their home court in Toronto.

In the first quarter of Monday's game, both teams appeared to be trading blows. But as the second quarter approached, it became clear that the desperate team had the edge.

"They got everything they wanted," said 76ers coach Doc Rivers. "They got everything they wanted, and they used 23 seconds on almost everything they had. They made it a slugfest."

Before that, they had scored just 14 points in the first 12 minutes. Philly trailed by double digits at half

 While the Sixers have improved in the second half of games this series, they clearly lacked "it" on Monday night, and Rivers explains why.
