Thursday February 1, the Toronto Raptors arrive at Capital One Arena to meet the
Last season, the squads played three times games, with the Raptors winning two of three games. This season the teams have met twice and split the games. The Raptors holds the all-time record having bested the Wizards in 47 of their 83 matches.
The Raptors hold the best home court record in the east (19-4) and also have a winning record on the road (15-11).
The All-Star backcourt and east coach will look to close out the games leading to the break with a view of overtaking the Celtics for the top seed.
Six players scored in double digits in the Raptors win over the Timberwolves including new daddy Fred VanVleet who came straight from the hospital to play. With the win Toronto has only lost twice to one team this season (Warriors).
Toronto has the benefit of having completed their opposite coast road games which could pay dividends coming down the stretch.
Conversely, the other east home court seeds all have western trips which won’t be completed until March. Boston and Cleveland both have seven west road games while the Heat have five.
John Wall underwent knee surgery Wednesday and will be out six to eight weeks. For a team in the playoff hunt and already plagued with a thin bench this isn’t great news.
Otto Porter Jr (25 points on 8 of 13 field goals, 6 rebounds), Bradley Beal (21 points, 6 rebounds, 9 assists) and Markieff Morris (18 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists) led the way Tuesday as they beat the OKC Thunder who were on an eight game win streak.
The Wizards sit in the fifth seed and following their win held a half game lead over the Bucks and Pacers. The question will be whether the Wizards can hang on to a playoff seed while Wall is out.
Looking at Washington’s schedule over the next eight weeks 18 of the Wizards 23 games (13-17 in six weeks) are against current playoff seeds with 11 on the road (9 in next 6 weeks).

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction: UNDER
The Wizards took care of business with the OKC Thunder, but will need the same effort to take down the Raptors who enter on the front end of a back to back game. Toronto will also play three games in four days with Sunday’s match occurring at noon.
Historically these squads have played some crazy games in Washington so expect a battle to the end.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Under 215
The loss of Wall and lack of bench depth will take a toll at some point and the Raptors will want to start this segment of three games off right.
