The Raptors have successfully ousted two squads in their previous games beating the Pistons by 29 and the Magic by 13.
Washington lost to the Warriors in their most recent game.
Last season the Raptors won two of three, but the Wizards have a 2-1 advantage through the teams three matches this season. Toronto hold the all-time record having bested the Wizards in 47 of their 84 matches.
While Washington’s revamped ball movement is thrilling to witness, so too is the energetic all round game of the Raptors.
In particular, the Raptors youthful bench provides copious highlights and the pure joy the unit plays with is addictive. Earlier in the season it was the efforts of the backcourt reserves (Delon Wright/Fred VanVleet) which was credited.
Recently however, the play of best friends Pascal Siakam and Jakob Poeltl (Jak & Skills) is dominating teams. Siakam who was shooting a dismal 19% from the perimeter has worked hard to improve this aspect of his game. Through the past 12 games he’s improved to 37.5 percent (6 of 16).
Meanwhile Jakob Poeltl is proving to be a solid defender. In the match vs. the Pistons, Poeltl’s defense of Blake Griffin had him taking cheap shots and clearly frustrated.
The two combined for 27 points, 14 rebounds, 9 assists, 4 steals and 4 blocks versus Orlando.
OG Anunoby suffered an ankle sprain and is questionable for Friday although he’s yet to miss a game this season.
Head Coach Scott Brooks may have a massive decision to make once John Wall returns. This because the Wizards are moving the ball at a Golden State Warriors level while the All-Star point guard has been out injured.
While pundits worried Washington would struggle without Wall they’ve done completely the opposite producing a 10-4 record.
Certainly the Wizards are better with Wall on the floor, but the team needs to adopt some of this ball heavy movement when Wall returns. For now the focus is on getting through their current schedule which features 13 consecutive games vs. playoff teams.
Bradley Beal is leading the way and while he’s scoring a fraction less points he’s dishing three more assists in Wall’s absence.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
If both teams play at their best this match has the potential to rank among the best this season. The Raptors are attempting to hold on to the top spot while the Wizards want to overtake Cleveland (who they sit just a half game back of following Cleveland’s loss to Philly) and hold off the hoard of teams chasing them for home court seeding.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors -4
Washington lucked out in the first game this season facing a tired Raptors squad just returning from a long west coast trip. This time, the Raptors benefit from the tough squads the Wizards have been battling.
