Game Preview

The Toronto Raptors will look to tackle the Washington Wizards at 7 p.m Eastern Time on Thursday, hosted at the Capital One Arena. As for current records in the league, Washington is 29-32 overall with a 14-13 at home, while the Raptors boast a 31-32 overall with 11-19 away.

On last Tuesday, Washington managed to barely come out with a victory as the team roughly defended against the Atlanta Hawks 119-116. The key piece for this Washington win was once again star guard Bradley Beal, who grabbed 37 points with 7 assists, while their support player Kyle Kuzma recorded 28 points to help the squad.
Beal and Kuzma combined for 56 shots in the close win, while the rest of the Washington lineup and bench only took 41 shots total with no other member recording double digit shot attempts, definitely showing a dependency on their star duo. The question setup by fans is rather simple: Can Toronto manage to suppress either of those 2 players given Washington’s level of dependency? As for injuries, Wes Unseld Jr.’s squad will be missing one piece of the puzzle in the form of starting guard Monte Morris, who remains out due to back soreness.

Looking at the other side of the court, Toronto beat the Chicago Bulls 104-98 in a scrappy back and forth match of basketball on Tuesday. Raptors’ superstar power forward Pascal Siakam and shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. combined for a total of 39 points, becoming the top scorers for Toronto in this matchup.
The Raptors shot a low 40.4% from the floor in the victory but were able to overcome their underwhelming shooting by being physical around the rim, ultimately winning the rebound (47-35) and the turnover battle (19-11). Their best chance to win this time around is to continue with the same playstyle.
This time around Washington’s dynamic duo of Beal/Kuzma should have enough in the tank to pull it through, thus we take a Washington win.
