The last time the Toronto Raptors visited D.C. the big story was the $0.30 tickets available on the secondary market. If the tickets were that cheap on Monday, it sounds like no one bought them.
Have a listen to the live-action at the Verizon Center. It's *so* quiet that it kind of feels like a high school game.
Sounds like a good environment ... for a nap! (*High five!*)
Last time out, Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan had jokes about the price of tickets: "When I was young, Clipper tickets were pretty low -- but not no *dollar*."
I wonder if the high school basketball games at Compton High School were louder than this?
As for the game, the Wizards have been in control (so far) and it looks like the Raptors, if anyone, are having trouble getting energized given the lack of buzz in the arena.
