Wizards Vs. Raptors Score Update: Toronto Dominates The Paint, Leads Washington By Ten At Half

The Washington Wizards trail the Toronto Raptors 55-45 after one half at the Air Canada Centre. Washington has been dominated in the paint, as the Raptors have attacked the lane and scored 36 points down low. The Raptors were coming off a blowout loss to the Celtics, and looking to avenge their loss to the Wizards. But Washington has not been able to find the bottom of the bucket, as they're shooting just 34 percent from the floor through the first 24 minutes.

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. The Wizards will look to challenge at the bucket in the second half to improve to 2-0 against Toronto this season
