PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Sixers will be back in South Philadelphia on Wednesday night as they welcome the Toronto Raptors to town.

Philadelphia is now 5-7 on the season after going 0-3 on their recently completed road trip. They have actually lost seven of nine since starting the season 3-0. But despite these struggles, the Sixers come into this game in first place in the Atlantic Division. They are a half-game ahead of the second place Raptors, who are 4-7.

The Sixers have been without rookie guard Michael Carter-Williams for the last four games because of a foot injury, but it looks like he could return to the line-up tonight.

Evan Turner continues to lead the Sixers in scoring, he is pouring in 22 points a game. Toronto is paced by Rudy Gay’s 20.6 point average.

The Sixers are 4-3 at the Center this season and this will be their first meeting with the Raptors.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Bob Cooney, Sixers beat writer for the Philadelphia Daily News, about this match-up.
