And he added 10 rebounds, three assists and five blocks, including two rejections of Siakam on a 21-2, fourth-quarter run that turned the seven-point lead into a 26-point cushion and brought out the third string for both teams.
That help and those double teams resulted in Leonard dishing out a game-high six assists while committing only one turnover, with all but one of his assists setting up a wide open 3-pointer.
"We didn't play well tonight", Lowry said. Early shots weren't falling and instead of slowing the game down and trying to create offence at the free throw line, the Raps kept trying to shoot jumpers to get out of the slump. We know we missed a lot of shots in Game 2 that we normally make. The franchise center's sweetest play came when he blocked Leonard's layup in the lane, hustled back and got the ball in his hands, and connected with Tobias Harris in the corner for a triple.
While all the talk in Philly has been about how this series is the biggest the city's team has played in years, Sixers coach Brett Brown predicted his players wouldn't be affected by the hype.
If one of the main goals of this season was to convince Leonard that the Raptors had the right mix of talent to complement his all-world skills - a reasonable argument after a five-game series win in the first round - then all of that has been quickly thrown into doubt. The Sixers haven't won a second-round series since 2001.
"We had to go out and blitz him". Not only is Lowry expected to win every loose ball and routinely step in for charges on players twice his size, but Lowry's also called upon to run track meets with J.J. Redick while also muscling up against Butler when the Raptors go small. During Monday night, Jimmy managed 30 points and 11 rebounds while James Ennis scored 13 points and 76ers held on and crushed Raptors 94-89 drawing the series 1-1.
Asked on Sunday about using the same starters for six straight games, which was unheard of between October and April, Nurse responded with a joke: "It's making me uncomfortable". "I have no complaints right now", Leonard said. The 76ers got a taste of that in Game 2, when backup centre Greg Monroe gave them a boost off the bench with most of his points coming on rolls to the basket. "Obviously Kyle and Marc's pick-and-roll, but me and Serge have just got to find ways to keep exploring that pick-and-roll coverage".
Butler may be the third option at times on a team with All-Stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, but Butler was the difference Tuesday in the 76ers getting their first win in Toronto since November 10, 2012.
With Leonard on the floor, Toronto outscored Philadelphia 97-71.
Leonard and Siakam carried Toronto on the offensive end, combining for 34 first-quarter points.
It's not that Brown made coaching mistakes in Game 1.
Danny Green, who hit 45 per cent of his three-point attempts this season - second-best in the National Basketball Association - but has made just two of 10 against Philadelphia, says the long-range shots can be like that. "If we don't do that, the prettiest things we decide to do offensively won't matter".
That's great news for Sixers fans, who have wondered if Brown was flexible enough not only to get them out of this round, but to take them to the next level.
Meanwhile, a bad night was made worse when Lowry, after boxing out Ben Simmons in the first half, appeared to take an elbow in the groin from Simmons in the first half of Thursday's loss that sent him falling to the ground for several seconds before eventually getting to his feet.
