Wizards vs. Raptors preview: Washington heads to Toronto trying to recapture playoff magic

New, comments
Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

There are two things you should know about the Wizards and Raptors before tonight's game.

  1. The Wizards swept the Raptors in last year's playoffs. Washington outscored Toronto by 54 points in the four-game sweep.
  2. Toronto has won 10 of the last 11 regular season meetings against Washington. The Wizards' only win in that span was a triple-overtime win led by 31 points each from John Wall and Marcin Gortat.

Past history and recent performance suggest the Raptors should pull out a win tonight, have a way of getting weird between these two, even though the end result winds up being the same most of the time. We'll see if things change this time.

Game Info

When and Where: Tuesday at 7:30 PM at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
TV: CSN Mid-Atlantic in Washington, TSN1 in Canada
Radio: 99.1 WNEW

Injury Report

Alan Anderson is out; Bradley Beal and Kris Humphries are questionable for the Wizards.

DeMarre Carroll is out for the Raptors.

Most likely Wizards Killer: Patrick Patterson

Yeah, we could go with Cory Joseph here since he's already had a nice performance against the Wizards this season, but we'll take Patterson to switch things up. Besides, the Wizards are toying with their rotations at the four spot again, which gives Patterson a window of opportunity to light Washington up from deep.
