Wizards Vs. Raptors Recap: Toronto Pulls Away For 106-89 Win Over Washington

The Washington Wizards got their first win of the season this year against the Toronto Raptors, a 15-point victory in early January. On Friday night, the Raptors evened the season series with a 106-89 win at Air Canada Centre. Toronto pulled away in the second half for the double digit win, shooting 45 percent from the floor and out-rebounding Washington by a mammoth 24-rebound margin.

After a relatively quiet first half, Nick Young led all Washington scorers with 21 points on seven of 17 from the floor. John Wall added 15 for Washington, but the Wizards once again shot below 40 percent from the field to drop their third in a row. Amir Johnson led Toronto inside with 18 points, and bolstered a strong attack down low that led to consistent points in the paint for the Raptors and that dramatic advantage on the glass. Washington got within one in the third period but Linas Kleiza led a Toronto run that pushed the lead back to double digits.

Washington has little time to recover, as Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers visit Verizon Center on Saturday evening.

John Wall leads Washington starters with nine points, while grabbing four boards and dishing four assists against the Raptors' tough-nosed Jose Calderon. Jordan Crawford came off the bench to chip in with 11 points, quickly getting ten shots up in 15 minutes on the floor for Randy Wittman. But the Wizards' continue to have issues in the paint, as Toronto already has 15 offensive rebounds to go along with their ample points at the rim.
