Marc Zumoff had T.J. McConnell on his Fresh 24 YouTube show, and the former Sixer said this about the 2019 Toronto series:

As a quick reminder, the Raptors went on to beat Milwaukee 4-2 in the Eastern Conference Finals, then took out Golden State 4-2 to win it all. Toronto needed double overtime to prevent a 3-0 series deficit against the Bucks, then won three more in a row to close it out. And that was the year the Warriors had the Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson injuries in the Finals, and were generally banged up through most of those playoffs.

For what it’s worth, the Sixers did beat Golden State in California during the regular season, and had a regular season win against Milwaukee as well. They would not have had home court advantage in either of those series, so it’s hard to say whether or not they would have come out on top. Keep in mind, if that Kawhi shot doesn’t go in, they still would have had to win the overtime period to win the series, and the Sixers’ offensive possessions at the end of regulation in game 7 were pretty wretched.

Good interview with T.J. though. Zoo’s podcast/video series is very good. Full episode here:
