  • Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards, 4-27-2018 - Pick and Prediction

Valanciunas scored on a layup just over a minute later to make it a 10-point game, flexing his muscles as he ran back down the floor. I think they just made some bigger shots and some big momentum plays down the stretch that really hurt us in the fourth.

John Wall almost finished with a triple-double, as the five-time All-Star had 26 points, nine rebounds and nine assists, but also coughed up seven turnovers in the process.

Casey has maintained that several of his guys - not just Wright - passed up open shots in the road losses, another argument borne out by the evidence. "With C.J. out there, he spaces the floor tremendously, they've got to worry about a knock-down shooter like him", DeRozan said.

DeRozan is averaging 28.8 points through five games against the Raptors.

DeMar DeRozan, who began this first round series with a modest 17 points in Game 1, has since raised his game to a new level to beyond even what we have seen in the past.

The Raptors clutched a one-point lead going into the fourth quarter in front of a nervous Air Canada Centre crowd of 19,987 that included Drake and Canadian swimming star Penny Oleksiak.

"We've been down 2-0 before, so I don't think being down 3-2 when we are going home is anything psychologically draining", Kelly Oubre Jr. said after the game. My job is to set good screens.

This topsy-turvy series will now return to Washington for a huge game six on Friday night. "We need to get some more ball movement".

Game 5 was a completely different story. DeMar DeRozan scored in bunches in the first three quarters of Game 5, then his teammates took over. "It was just one of those things where I was trying to be kind of unselfish and make an extra pass".

"We love our chances", Wall said when asked how he likes the Wizards' odds of winning game 6 at home, per ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk.

Cheers to Record Store Day!
In addition, Going Underground (1312 19th St.) will host DJs throughout the day from 10:30 a.m.to 6 p.m. Petersburg, and Mojo Books and Records in Tampa, lines snaked out the door early in the morning.

Casey said the losses were uncharacteristic of how the Raptors have played on the road this season.

The Wizards had a chance to do just that in Game 5 but squandered their best showing - albeit on a poor shooting night - in enemy territory. "It gave us an opportunity for Kyle and DeMar to get off the ball a little bit more, and I thought that was the difference". In Game 5, the Raptors connected on 11-of-25 three-point attempts. They have to lock down the perimeter and, as this series has shown, that includes DeRozan even though he isn't known for making threes.

The two teams, plus the National Basketball Association, are donating to a fund set up to help the families affected by the attack.

Toronto answered with eight consecutive points, capped by a dunk from DeRozan, to regain the lead.

The Wizards run leaked into the beginning of the second. Once again, the Raptors combatted Wizards guard John Wall with a dizzying combination of defenders and coverages. Beal and Porter hit late jumpers, helping Washington trim to Raptors lead to 48-47 at halftime. The result was the Wizards' best defensive game overall, as the Raptors scored a series-low 98 points.
