Raptors vs Wizards prediction

I'm not running to the window to lay chalk with the Wizards, but this is an indication of just how bad things have gotten for the Raptors over the last few weeks. The Raptors have lost 9 of their last 10 games, and their injury report is getting longer by the week. The Raptors have truly thrown in the towel on the season and are trying to get as many ping pong balls as possible. The Wizards aren't in a much better spot, but they are fielding a more competitive roster and did just beat the Kings outright as 11 point underdogs. It's the Wizards or pass for me.
