    Default GT Wizards @ Raptors - 7 PM ET



    • Two sub .500 team playing well above their standings lately
    • Raptors won at Washington last week. Gay and DeRozan each scored 24, Bargnani had a good night shooting 4 of 7
    • Bargnani has since gone scoreless over 34 minutes in his last two games. Teammates and coach asked the fans to stop booing Andrea. What will the ACC do tonight?
    • Bassy Telfair might play his first minutes this evening for the Toronto Raptors

    Washington being 4-22 on the road is a good thing.

    sadly this will be the first game I will miss this season due to a funeral. Hope the raps pull it off.

    The home team has won 9 out of the last 10 meetings. The only exception was the Raptors' latest win @ Washington.

    just a reminder that detroit is 2 games back.

    a loss for us and a win for them would put them right at our doorstep 1 game back.

    every game not against an elite team is a trap game these days with the high flying raps. The last washington game was a rare one where we seemed to keep a healthy distance most of the game. Let's hope for more of the same tonight.

    Washington won against HOT Rockets last night, should stay focused.

    They are 12-9 since John Wall has come back with wins against the Hawks, Clippers, Bulls, Knicks, Nets, Bucks and 2 against the Nuggets. A healthy Wizards team is an above average team.

    I am nervous about this game as well.

    Wall played awful last game vs. Toronto.

    Wiz are better of late than they showed last game vs. Toronto.

    Raps showed inability to put the game away throughout 2nd and 3rd quarters.

    Nervousness reigns supreme.

    Must-win, and a should-win at the same time. Washington is still a poor team with John Wall, and they don't match up well with our lineups.
    Seriously though, this game should have a large margin REGARDLESS of how they're playing.

    Washington no longer has Jamal Crawford so that should be a plus.... its literally stopping Wall we have to worry about.

    Lowry just needs to get under Walls skin and it should be a win

    rockets don't really play defense, they just try to outscore you. WAS just beat them up on the inside all game.

    The better we get, the more nervous I get about these 'winnable' games.

    That being said, Washington's offence is absolutely turrible, so as long as the Raptors stop wall et al. from getting out and running, we should be able to stay in it and grab the W.

    Can't be caught off guard just because of their record. This is a very strong and competitive team with John Wall and Nene back on the team! Gotta face them like they were the Knicks or the Heat! Don't underestimate them. This is an important game! We need to give ourselves a bit of a cushion away from the 76ers!

    I am looking forward to Rod Black making a subtle reference when he does his throw to the booth and the awkward look on Devlin's face that follows when they cut to him.

    Defintely can't underestimate the Wiz. I watched the Rockets game on Saturday and the Beal/Wall backcourt was excellent. Ariza was huge for them off the bench. They do seem to have serious issues guarding the 3-pt line though. Rockets wings ate them up....
