Through 3 Quarters

The Washington Wizards typically have all the answers at home, but the Toronto Raptors are posing a tough problem. Sitting on a score of 86-79, the Raptors have looked like the better team out there today, but there’s still one more quarter to play.

Shooting guard Fred VanVleet has led the way so far for Toronto, as he has 25 points and four assists. Those points put VanVleet near his season high of 26. One thing to keep an eye out for is Khem Birch’s foul situation as he currently sits at four.

Washington has been relying on the performance of shooting guard Bradley Beal, who has 20 points and five assists along with five rebounds.
