The GIST: Here’s how things are shaping up early in Round 2 of the NBA playoffs.

  • Despite an unreal 35-point performance from Kawhi “The Claw” Leonard, the Toronto Raptors are tied with the Philadelphia 76ers at one game apiece after an ugly 94–89 loss on Monday. The very important Game 3 is in Philly tonight, and you better believe the dinos will be back with a vengeance.

  • The Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks are also tied 1-1. The Houston Rockets have a deep 2-0 series hole to crawl out of against the defending champs, the Golden State Warriors
