The Washington Wizards need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Washington Wizards are averaging 113.5 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 119.1 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 31.3 points and five rebounds while Russell Westbrook is averaging 21.8 points and 10.5 assists. Rui Hachimura is the third double-digit scorer and Davis Bertans is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Washington Wizards are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.8 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Wizards are allowing 38.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game.
The Toronto Raptors have a chance to win back-to-back games for the first time since February 19-21. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 112.3 points on 44.7 percent shooting and allowing 111.8 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Pascal Siakam is averaging 20.4 points and 4.7 assists while Fred VanVleet is averaging 19.8 points and 4.2 rebounds. Kyle Lowry is the third double-digit scorer and Gary Trent Jr. is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and 82.6 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 37.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.2 rebounds per game.
The Wizards are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Raptors are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Wizards last 6 overall. The over is 6-2 in Raptors last 8 games playing on 2 days rest. The Wizards are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Toronto.
The Washington Wizards are a tough team to get behind, as they're back to their losing ways and are losing their last five games by an average of 7.8 points. Beal is also questionable for this contest with a hip injury. The Toronto Raptors have a chance to win two straight games for the first time in a while, and they're actually winning their last five games by an average of four points. I'm not thrilled with this number, but it's the Raptors or pass.
