Following a tight affair, the Sixers edged out the Raptors with a strong fourth quarter rally led by Nick Young and Jason Richardson.

OH MY SWAG! HOLY J-RICH!

Could somebody please tell me what just happened? Because for an early season game, that is as fun a game as you could ask for.

The trying to tread water at .500 76ers and the not very good Toronto Raptors welcoming back their best player in Kyle Lowry played an absolutely insane game of basketball that was actually pretty well played on both ends.

The Philadelphia 76ers were led by Nick "Swagy P" Young who was at his absolute swaggiest today who had 23 points on 7-13 shooting. Not only was he an efficient shooter tonight, but he actually picked up four assists (!!!) and even managed to snag a few rebounds.

After trailing by 7 in the 4th quarter, the Sixers went on a 20-6 run including several highlight plays from Nick Young and Jason Richardson to put the game away. The Sixers have achieved their second three-game winning streak of this young season and are incredibly 7-4.

More to come in the full recap later.
