Late in the fourth quarter on Saturday, frustrated Sixers centre Joel Embiid inexplicably grabbed Pascal Siakam in a tackle.

Siakam was on his way to 34 points in his best playoff performance of his career, and he was working hard for every one of them, attacking Embiid all night long.
  • BOXSCORE: Raptors 110, 76ers 102

A game after going scoreless in the second half, Siakam turned the tables on the first-round playoff series, lifting Toronto to a 110-102 victory to avoid elimination and force a Game 5.

"Resilience. He's always been a resilient player," teammate Thaddeus Young said. "He's always gonna fight through adversity. He knows his game. He knows how to bounce back and come back from having not-so-good games. That's what he did."
