Friday, November 23 finds the Washington Wizards meeting up vs. the Toronto Raptors for the second time this season. Toronto won the first match 117-113.
Toronto arrives having last completed a back to back road series in which they beat the Magic at the buzzer and beat the Hawks in Atlanta moving them to 15-4 on the season. Washington rallied from a 20 point deficit to beat the visiting Clippers on Tuesday.
Last season, squads split the season series. The Raptors hold the all-time record having bested the Wizards in 49 of their 86 matches.
The Wizards are surrounded in controversy given their lackluster record of 6-11, tenth seed and sitting 2.5 games back of a playoff seed. Despite the victory against the Clippers the players are dealing with news everyone on the roster is available for trade.
John Wall is seemingly the player whom management would like to move, but his super max deal and early buyout penalty make this option the least likely.
Therefore, the more plausible option is Bradley Beal who several teams will undoubtedly inquire about. Other trade options could be Otto Porter Jr. or Kelly Oubre.
Of course, if the Wizards can extend their winning ways, blowing up the team could be taken off the table. Certainly, the talent on paper justifies them joining the East’s elite squads. The question is whether this squad can discover cohesion, consistency and the ability to erase the constant drama surrounding them.
Otto Porter Jr. (hamstring) is expected to play Friday versus the Raptors. Dwight Howard has dealt with ongoing gluteal soreness missing the last game and is questionable for Friday.
The Raptors rank in the top 10 offensively and defensively. After losing three games Toronto was eager to capitalize on this week’s easier opponents. So far they’ve accomplished their goal winning the back to back set versus the Magic and Hawks.
Kyle Lowry led the way in Atlanta registering a triple-double of 21 points, 12 rebounds and 17 assists.
Toronto is navigating injuries, especially to their wing position with four players missing the Hawks match including Kawhi Leonard who sat out for rest. The Raptors hope to have C.J. Miles (adductor) and OG Anunoby (wrist) back on Friday.
Despite being short handed the Raptors continue to win and boast the best record in the NBA.
Norman Powell (shoulder) is expected out until mid December.
