Free Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
This baseball set offers an opportunity for one team to gain a vital edge over the other as they arrive seeded ninth (Raptors) and 10th (Wiz) in the East.
Toronto has seemingly been gaining momentum winning eight of their last 10 and is just a half-game back of the eight-place Hawks while the Wiz are a game back of the Raps and 1.5 back of Atlanta.
Timing is everything, so it’s interesting recent Wiz buyout Will Barton was signed by the Raptors and should get some run given Toronto just sent five youngsters to the G League. Could he end up being an x-factor in these next two games?
Based on the numerous times’ players came back to haunt their old clubs I’m going with – – yes!
