76ers season has gone south with each visit to Toronto

76ers season has gone south with each visit to Toronto PHILADELPHIA — The 76ers have gone south in Toronto. Sixers coach Brett Brown wants the season series to come with an asterisk. Sure, the Raptors went 3-1 against the Sixers, but Philadelphia has evolved thanks to a pair of splashy trades this season that could skew the perception that Toronto has been the dominant team in the series. The Sixers head this week to Toronto for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinal with their starting five intact for the first time all season: All-Stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, midseason acquisitions Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, and JJ Redick failed to start a game together against the Raptors.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Jimmy Butler produced a classic "Jimmy G. Buckets" outing in Monday's Game 2 win over the Toronto Raptors, prompting Sixers head coach Brett Brown to refer to him with a more formal name.

"This was James Butler," Brown told reporters postgame when reflecting on the four-time All-Star's 30-point, 11-rebound, five-assist performance to help Philly square the series. "That was the adult in the gym ... he was a stud."

However, when Butler was told about Brown's comment, the veteran was quick to point out his proper name.

"My name isn't James," Butler said to a laughing media room. "Literally, it's Jimmy."
