Washington Wizards vs Toronto Raptors Game 2

Washington Wizards vs Toronto Raptors Game 2

It should be noted, however, that Wall got to the free-throw line 10 times Saturday during a game in which no one else attempted more than four free throws, and his free-throw attempt rate (free throws per field goal attempt) of 50 percent far exceeded his regular-season FTA rate of 36.1 percent. He made as many three-pointers as he did two-pointers en route to a 6-of-20 performance. The sellout crowd roared when DeRozan forced a turnover and saved the ball from going out of bounds, then passed to Lowry who fed Wright for an alley-oop dunk with 3:38 left, putting Toronto up 125-107.

The Washington Wizards will try to tie the series as they face the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 in one of the first round NBA Playoff games on Tuesday, start time at 7:00 PM ET, at Air Canada Centre, Toronto, ON. VanVleet did not play in the second half. Serge Ibaka led the Raptors with 23 points and 12 rebounds in Game One. Miles led the way with three threes and 11 points in the frame, and Toronto took a 76-58 lead into the halftime break, breaking their franchise record of 63 points scored versus Miami in 2016.

Wall scored 14 points in the third while Toronto shot 0 for 7 from 3-point range, allowing the Wizards to cut it to 100-90 heading to the fourth. Toronto's previous high for points in a quarter of a playoff game was 39, set against Orlando in 2008.

Terry Rozier added 23 points for Boston, which took a 2-0 series lead in the first-round matchup.

And also in fairness, the Raptors overcame a Game 1 loss to eventually win a series on 3 occasions.

The Celtics led by as many as 20 in the fourth quarter. The Raptors used 13 players. But the Celtics responded with an 11-2 run, capped by a banked in 3-pointer by Brown to push their lead back up to 118-99. Valanciunas had eight rebounds in the opening quarter.

On the flip side, the former Kentucky star struggled inside the three-point arc, as he connected on just three of 15 shots there. It was no different Saturday, with the 41 points right on the season average (41.8) for the Raptors' reserves. The Raptors had 10 assists on 16 made baskets in the first.

"We know how fast (John) Wall is with the ball, how fast (Bradley) Beal is with the ball, and we will figure out some other things they were doing to us".
