Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards, 4-27

Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards, 4-27

Unlike previous playoff appearances, this time Toronto could not be thrown off its game by a trapping defense created to take the ball out of Lowry and DeRozan's hands.

The Raptors took a 3-2 series lead with a 108-98 home win in game five on Wednesday night. He didn't have a "wow" game in this series, but he's played well on both ends and at least he won't have to hear questions about poor play in this postseason.

The Wizards led 78-73 after three quarters, and they started the fourth with Beal, before subbing in John Wall after 27 seconds. Lowry, center Jonas Valanciunas and, eventually, DeRozan, would check in to finish things off, rested and feeding off the energy created by the second unit. Plus Morris got away with shoving a ref twice in this series and with going right to the Raptors bench and jabbing a finger in the face of OG Anunoby. Maybe this time, DeRozan will forget those bad games behind and concentrate on the present. I thought we did this round, and we just gotta keep doing it. "He's the engine that drives that group".

"We took the shots that we normally take, and there's nothing abnormal about it", Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. In 2016, the Raptors played three Game 6s.

The eighth-seeded Wizards fell to 0-2 in the series before knotting it all up with two straight home wins. "It's nothing new to us". You're searching, you're trying to pull strings, and we had some guys that didn't have their best games at that position tonight and we were searching. "And now we're here".

Kyle Lowry scored 24 points, and Toronto got a big lift from their bench in a clinching 102-92 win over Washington Wizards in Game 6 of their first-round play-off series at the Capital One Arena in Washington. "As soon as you put Fred in, Pascal just blossomed". "And one that continued to get better".

The Wizards trail 3-2 in the series and host the Raptors on Friday night. Meanwhile, the Raptors starting point guard Kyle Lowry had 17 points.




Casey has said repeatedly over this series that he's not sure where the hesitancy has come from on the road, given that the Raptors were a good travelling team all season.

"I think you gotta withstand the test of time, you know?" "And the headache that comes with that".

"I think we always prepare for any lineup that goes out there", DeRozan said. We've been fighting a lot, trying to figure out our groove and just trying to get back to where we are.

The Washington Wizards could not crack the Raptors defense in their tough game five loss.

The Raptors, though, weathered that poor start and played their way back into the game thanks in large part to the return of VanVleet, who has been out with a shoulder injury suffered in the last game of the regular season.

The six-foot-five guard scored 11 of those points in a fourth quarter that saw the Wizards lead 87-82 with some nine minutes remaining only to see Toronto claw its way back into the lead with a 12-4 run.

Despite another record-setting regular season performance, Toronto has done little to silence the narrative nightmares that continue creeping into the dreams of fans.
