PHILADELPHIA - A game after being buried by ball movement and three-point shooting, the Raptors copied that blueprint to great success on Wednesday night.

Rudy Gay set a career high in assists, Kyle Lowry was excellent in his hometown and DeMar DeRozan paced the club early.

Gay finished with 18 points, eight assists and eight rebounds, Lowry 13 points, 10 assists and only two turnovers (both in the first quarter) and DeRozan led the way with 33 in Toronto’s 108-95 win over the slipping 76ers.

On Sunday, Portland nailed 15 threes on 32 attempts and dished out 25 assists in an overtime win. The Raptors went just 3-for-17 from deep in that one and had 17 assists and 16 turnovers, with only three players notching assists — none of them named Rudy Gay.
