What you need to know about the Raptors
It was a close one, but this past Thursday the Raptors sidestepped the Milwaukee Bucks for a 97-93 win. It was another big night for Toronto’s point guard Fred VanVleet, who shot 5-for-10 from downtown and finished with 29 points and five rebounds. Toronto also got 20 points from Pascal Siakam and 13 from rookie Scottie Barnes.
The Raptors will be without OG Anunoby (hip), Khem Birch (knee) and Goran Dragic (not with team) on Sunday. Toronto’s biggest strength and weakness both come on the boards this season. It leads the NBA in offensive rebounds per game but ranks last in defensive rebounds per contest.
What you need to know about the Wizards
Meanwhile, the game between the Wizards and the Cleveland Cavaliers this past Friday was not particularly close, with Washington falling 116-101. Washington was down 99-72 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. The top scorers for Washington were small forward Deni Avdija (16 points) and shooting guard Bradley Beal (14 points).
Washington is still missing Thomas Bryant (knee) and Rui Hachimura (reconditioning), neither of which has played this season. The Wizards are middle-of-the-pack defensively as they rank 14th in defensive rating. That comes despite Washington being last in the league with just 6.2 steals per game.
