Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid battles for the ball with Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard.

For the second game in a row, the Philadelphia 76ers will put their season on the line against the Raptors. This time, however, it's also do or die for Toronto.

The Sixers players don't have a ton of Game 7 experience — and the franchise has only one road win in a Game 7 in its history, back in 1982 — but they played well in a high stakes environment in Game 6, and seemed to thrive. Now, they'll have to put in another 48-minute effort just like that in Toronto if they hope to advance to face the waiting Bucks.

There's been talk about Brett Brown's job being on the line, and the futures of pending free agents Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, but for at least one more night, their attention will remain focused on the Raptors. Below you'll find our live updates for Game 7, and as always, you can discuss the action in the comments section.
