The Washington Wizards will host the 4-5 Toronto Raptors at the Verizon Center on Tuesday. Can they record their first win?
The Washington Wizards are still looking for their first win of the year, and they will host the Toronto Raptors with a pretty good chance to put one in the win column on Tuesday. The game starts at 7 pm ET and can be seen on CSN.
The Raptors don't have a lot of talent, but they are playing above their heads this year, and new coach Dwane Casey has brought a winning attitude and a tough defensive mentality. Despite not really having the personnel for it, the Raptors are a top ten team in terms of points allowed per game this year. For a Wizards team that has a tough time scoring the basketball, this could prove to be a pretty difficult matchup.
