Pregame notes

A winning streak? — Amazingly, the Wizards won! It would be absolutely mind-blowing if they can win 2-in-a-row for the first time this season.

The Raptors are better than their record suggests — The Raptors are below .500 (11-13) however, in my mind, they are one of the more solid teams in the East. This is going to be a very tough matchup, but given that the Raptors are missing two of their starters the Wizards might be able to pull it off. On the other hand, Fred Van Vleet has been torching opponents recently and given the Wizards lax perimeter defense one can only imagine whether he might break his career record of 54 points, set recently.

Do yourself a favor and choose the away broadcast on LeaguePass— It’s tiring to watch the home broadcasting of NBC Sports Washington that does not give an objective analysis of the team, even when things are going so badly. Oh, wait, the station is owned by Ted Leonsis, right. The other day I had a blast watching the Wizards-Hornets game commentated by Hornets broadcasters Dell Curry and Eric Collins as they objectively analyzed the Wizards flaws. Yes, Dell is Steph and Seth’s dad.

Can someone please replace Brooks?— Not much to elaborate here.
