We got a great game in Canada tonight, a rematch of last year’s playoffs series
Toronto Raptors – Washington Wizards
Toronto are 7 – 1 SU against the Wizards in the regular season, the last three seasons and the only loss was after triple OT. But… in the only series teams have met in the playoffs during that time, was last year and Wizards won it 4 – 0. Toronto got their revenge partially, by winning in Washington, but tonight, they should add to their wins, by defeating and if possible trashing the Wizards, in front of their home fans, the same ones that saw Wizards win both times in Canada, in last season’s Playoffs.
The spot couldn’t been better for the Raptors. Nene, Gooden, Beal, Neal and Anderson, all out for this one. Wizards suddenly found Temple, who had 3 games of 20+ points during their winning streak (first time in the history of the league, that a player that never had 20+ points before, suddenly does it for three straight games), but he cooled down in the last two games and I wouldn’t expect him to go off on a nightly base anyway.
While Wizards went on a 4 games winning streak, before losing to the Clips, the last 10 games, still Raps had the better results, winning 6 out of 10, while Wizards win in only 5 games.
I think that Raptors in pretty good form, beating Miami and Milwaukee on the road and Dallas at home and should continue to win, in such a big game for them. Wizards will be looking to get their wins in the next games, since they are playing the next four games at home, all against Eastern rivals and all playoff contenders (including Toronto again).
